Project Overview

Our approach We are building climate resilience by committing to transition our global operations to 100% renewable electricity and reduce our GHG emissions by 25% across our value chain. Following the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recommendation, in March 2018 we set a science based target that is in line with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. We are committed to reducing absolute Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 35% by 2025 from a 2017 …

Our approach We are building climate resilience by committing to transition our global operations to 100% renewable electricity and reduce our GHG emissions by 25% across our value chain. Following the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recommendation, in March 2018 we set a science based target that is in line with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. We are committed to reducing absolute Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 35% by 2025 from a 2017 base year, in line with the 1.5 degrees pathway. Furthermore, we commit to increasing annual sourcing of renewable electricity from 7% in 2016 to 100% by 2025. We also commit to reducing emissions across the value chain (Scopes 1, 2 and 3) by 25% per beverage by 2025, from a 2017 base year. We include over 87% of our total Scope 3 emissions in our science-based target, putting us well over the two thirds inclusion threshold that is required by the Science Based Targets initiative-----To reduce our Scope 3 emissions generated from electricity consumption at the point of sale while also ensuring our products are kept cool in a sustainable way and reducing emissions of participating retailers by 100%, we are working to provide renewable electricity to our retail partners. Z-Tech, our technology and innovation hub that was launched to connect small and medium-sized businesses in our value chain with digital platforms to improve their business and their livelihoods, has partnered with the startup Lemon Energia to provide small retailers in Brazil with renewable, clean energy. Retailers sign up to the Lemon Energia platform and are connected to the nearest solar farm in the region. Through this partnership we aim to bring renewable electricity to 50,000 retailers across Brazil, reducing more than 50,000 tons of CO2 e in our value chain. Similarly, in Mexico, through the installation of on-site solar panels on our Modelorama retail stores, we will aim to provide our franchisees with renewable electricity from our own energy company Modelo Power. Initially, we aim to power over 1,000 stores in 2021 with the potential to scale to additional small retailers across Mexico. Modelo Power will provide franchises with renewable electricity over the next five years, reducing emissions in our value chain by more than an estimated 450,000 tons CO2 e while reaching over 30,000 stores by 2025.

It is very important for us because the one soap for one child project needs a lot of water during production of soap. So we have now clear knowledge on how to save water during post and pre-production.
