Project period
2017 – 2030
The Group is committed to reach these four essential goals, by 2030:
Targets of 2022:

• 50% reduction in carbon emissions at our breweries;

• 100% electricity from renewable sources at our breweries;

• ZERO coal use at our breweries;

• 15% reduction in beer-in-hand carbon footprint;

• 25% reduction in water usage at our breweries;

• 2.5 hl/hl water usage;

• 2.0 hl/hl water usage at all breweries;

• partnering to safeguard shared water resources;

• 100% responsible drinking messaging through packaging and brand activations;

• expand offering of alcohol-free brews (AFBs) to 100%;

• reduction in accidents rate year on year.
Strengthen the prevention and treatment of substance abuse, including harmful use of narcotic drugs and alcohol.
Carlsberg Ukraine is part of the Carlsberg Group and one of the largest brewers in Ukraine. Carlsberg Ukraine owns breweries in Zaporizhzhia, Kyiv and Lviv, this latter being the very first industrial brewery countrywise. The company employs over 1,500 people. Carlsberg's portfolio in Ukraine holds beer, cider and soft drinks under the brands Lvivske, Robert Doms, Carlsberg, Kronenbourg 1664, Kvass Taras, Somersby, Guinness and others.
Improve education, awareness-raising and capacity of individuals and institutions on mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning.
Utilising biogas. In 2019, 11% of natural gas was replaced by biogas, extracted at treatment plants from our own wastewater before it is discharged into the public sewer.

Returnable glass bottles. In 2019, Carlsberg Ukraine reused about 124 million glass bottles, which accounts for 44% of the total beer volume sold in secondary glass packaging.

The Carlsberg Group breweries in Ukraine feature one of the highest rates in terms of the water-use efficiency.

As of May 2020, Carlsberg Ukraine uses 2.45 hl/hl of water for brewing, which is ahead of the Group's target of 2.5 hl/hl set for 2022. It owes to multiple projects launched at each production site, including water recycling for technical purposes.
Organizers and partners
By 2020, halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.
By 2030, substantially increase water-use efficiency and ensure sustainable withdrawals to address water scarcity and supply fresh water to greater number of people stressed by water shortage.
By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
By 2030, implement integrated water resources management at all levels including the transboundary cooperation as appropriate.
By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.
Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers, especially migrant women and those who do not have stable employment.
By 2030, achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources.
Encourage companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle.
Support developing countries to strengthen their scientific and technological capacity to move towards more sustainable patterns of consumption and production.
Targets of 2030:

• ZERO carbon emissions at our breweries;

• 30% reduction in beer-in-hand carbon footprint;

• 50% reduction in water efficiency for brewing;

• 1.7 hl/hl water usage;

• strengthen partnerships to safeguard shared water resources;

• annual improvement with regard to responsible consumption in our markets;

• ZERO lost-time accidents.
Expanding the choice of alcohol-free brews (AFBs). Since the beginning of the programme, the company's AFBs portfolio has grown by 4%.

Annually, Carlsberg Ukraine joins the World Day of Responsible Beer Consumption. In 2019, the company's employees visited with sellers at 20,000 POS to help prevent underage sales.

Focus on Health & Safety of employees and suppliers. The company continues training efforts, ensures the protective equipment for the personnel, and engages with suppliers to promote and support the Health & Safety ambition.
The Programme identifies four Sustainability Ambitions: ZERO carbon footprint, ZERO water waste, ZERO irresponsible drinking and a ZERO accidents culture underpinned with strong and measurable targets for 2022 and 2030:
At the UN Global Compact, we aim to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want. That's our vision.

To make this happen, the UN Global Compact supports companies to:

Do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption; and Take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.
