AB InBev is closely tied to the natural environment: agricultural crops and water are our key ingredients. We require raw materials for our packaging and we need energy and fuel to brew, transport and refrigerate our beers.


We know that understanding the potential climate-related risks and opportunities for our business and value chain should inform our long-term climate strategy. This is why we have announced an ambition to achieve net zero across our value chain by 2040.

“Building on the progress we have made towards our 2025 Sustainability Goals, we are mapping decarbonization pathways and aim to continue investing in partnerships and innovation towards our ambition to achieve net zero across our value chain by 2040.”


Michel Doukeris, CEO

Analyzing AB InBev's
Carbon Footprint

We assess and measure emissions across our entire value chain. In 2020, we estimated Scope 3 emissions represented over 85% of our total footprint which is why we aim to engage with our value chain partners to develop innovative solutions.
