MillerCoors released its 2012 Sustainability Report, “Great Things on Tap,” detailing its performance across five key focus areas. The report, available online, details MillerCoors progress toward its 2015 goals for responsibility, water and energy use, packaging, supply chain and more.

“We are taking steps across the company to ensure that we are sustainably building a stronger future for MillerCoors and the communities we serve,” said MillerCoors Chief Executive Officer Tom Long. “Great Things on Tap provides insight into our strategy for environmental stewardship and also reinforces our deep commitment to ensuring our beers are consumed responsibly.”

MillerCoors has placed water stewardship at the forefront of its strategic environmental priorities. MillerCoors recorded an overall water-to-beer ratio of 4.07:1 in 2011, its lowest yet. Within the reporting period, the brewer conducted watershed assessments in its eight major brewery communities to understand long-term access to quality water. Additionally, MillerCoors is calculating its overall water footprint — how, when and where water is used throughout the business and supply chain. The report also details how the brewer is reducing water usage in its breweries.

The MillerCoors 2012 Sustainability Report discloses the company’s performance data and progress across its five key sustainability focus areas: Responsibility, Environmental Stewardship, Supply Chain, People and Communities, and Ethics and Transparency. To provide increased transparency, MillerCoors voluntarily follows the Global Reporting Initiative framework and for the first time disclosed its management approach for sustainable business practices, a final step in achieving the GRI “B” application level.
