Multinational brewer AB InBev has pledged to achieve net zero emissions by 2040.

The company is the owner of a wide array of beers including Beck’s, Budweiser, Corona and Modelo.

The commitment follows its announcement earlier this year of its first carbon-neutral breweries in Wuhan, China and Ponta Grossa, Brazil.

It has set a 2025 sustainability plan to build on its 25% reduction in operational emissions in the last three years.

Chief Sustainability Officer, Ezgi Barcenas, said: “We are paving the way in climate action through our 2025 Sustainability Goals. We are proud to be one of the first 100 companies to have our climate action goal, which is consistent with a 1.5-degree pathway, validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

“From building a resilient and agile value chain to solidifying our role as a trusted partner in local communities to identifying and capturing new sources of business value, climate transition and our broader ESG agenda will play a key role in delivering on our company strategy and purpose.”
