Resource Overview

In this link, you will find an overview of our measures and initiatives to support the health and livelihood of employees and communities in which we operate.

Our three guiding principles:

  1. Health, safety, and trust of our people
  2. Safeguard the continuity of our business and appeal of our brands
  3. Support to the communities who are most impacted
  • For our people: we support the health and safety of our employees, the company is ensuring that those employees, who work in production and distribution, follow strict hygiene and social distancing guidelines and receive support to do their jobs safely. Furthermore, to provide security to our employees, HEINEKEN commits until the end of 2020, we will not carry out structural layoffs, as a consequence of Covid-19.
  • For our customers: we are scaling up initiatives in support of on-trade customers across markets in all regions.
  • For our suppliers: we are committed to paying suppliers at agreed payment terms and will support its most vulnerable small and medium-sized suppliers through early payments.
  • For our communities: we are deploying multiple local initiatives across our global operations in support of those who are at the front line of the Covid-19 fight. These include the donation of water and non-alcoholic beverages, the production of hand sanitizers and monetary contributions to front line medical facilities.
