Brewer named as one of best in world in report

After job cuts and loses

A BURTON-based brewing giant is celebrating after being named ‘best in class’ on the world stage.
Molson Coors, based in High Street, revealed that it had earned a place on the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.
The firm is one of only 14 other food and beverage companies on the index from across the globe

.
“We’re proud to be recognised as beverage sector leader for the second consecutive year, and to be included in the index for the second year running,” said Peter Swinburn, Molson Coors president and chief executive.
“Molson Coors has focused on continuing to improve ‘Our Beer Print’, which recognises our impacts on our communities, people and environment.
“Through 2013, we have developed Our Beer Print further to engage through our brands and partner with our customers to have greater influence and contribute to the company’s growth.”
Key areas highlighted as part of the firm’s successful placing were brand management, packaging and innovation.
Its success in these areas has been helped by the installation of a new energy centre at its Station Street site and new packaging lines in canning (flow wrap) and bottling.
In terms of innovation, the Burton company has continued to improve by developing new lower strength brews like Carling Zest and more recently Carling Coolers in Asda.
More developments are expected to be made as the Coors continues to spend £75 million on brewing to secure its future in the town.
In July 2013, Molson Coors announced its ‘Our Beer Print’ – 2013 corporate responsibility report, outlining millions of pounds of savings per year from 2008 through 2012, due to lower use of energy and water, reduced waste fees and taxes, and sales of materials that would otherwise have been disposed.
In 2012, the company announced ambitious new targets to achieve further reductions which included cuts of 25 per cent in energy intensity and 20 per cent in water per unit of production by the year 2020.
