Brewing giant Anheuser-Busch announced its 2025 US sustainability goals this week.
Clean power adoption is one of four key priorities, with the brewer pledging 100% of the electricity it buys will come from renewable sources by the middle of the next decade. The other sustainability goals are linked to water, agriculture and the circular economy.
Alongside the goals, it was also confirmed that its flagship Budweiser brand will have a 100% Renewable Electricity symbol on its US packaging beginning on Earth Day.
“We firmly believe that investing in a more sustainable future not only brings us closer to realising our dream of a better world, it moves our business forward,” said Ingrid De Ryck, VP Procurement and Sustainability, Anheuser-Busch.
The move by Anheuser-Busch is part of a trend of corporations backing sustainable power – one reported regularly on these pages.
