Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Climate change is one of the most pressing concerns facing our global beverage system. While the beverage system is currently responsible for around 30% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, we believe it can become more carbon-efficient and resilient, and even has the potential to play a positive role in restoring the health of our climate.

As one of the top leading  beverage companies, we’re committed to doing our part to curb climate change by reducing GHG emissions across our value chain. In 2015, we announced a goal to achieve a 20% reduction in absolute GHG emissions by 2030, but as the impact of climate change becomes ever more apparent, we must step up to be even more ambitious.

In early 2020, we joined other leading companies in to set science-based emissions-reduction targets, across our entire value chain, aimed at limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, while also developing a long-term strategy for achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

“WRI worked closely with Beverage Champ to review how they account for their Scope 3 emissions to help inform their strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions across their value chain. As one of the major distribution companies, Beverage Champ commitment to reducing emissions in line with limiting global temperatures to 1.5oC signals their ambition and climate leadership and puts them on a path to accelerate emissions reductions.”
