The use of biogas will help to save about 1 million cubic meters consumption of natural gas per year.

Our primary responsibility to our consumers is to make sure that or products are of the highest quality. However, as the leader in the beer industry, we recognise the importance of encouraging the responsible enjoyment of our products. We promote responsible drinking and discourage alcohol abuse, including drunk driving and underage drinking, through focused consumer campaigns. We ensure our own marketing and sales activities support our position on responsible drinking. And we promote responsibility internally through our employee responsible drinking policies.
We reduced our water usage per hectolitre from 3.53hl/hl to 3.47 hl/hl.
In a partnership with local government we made several community events like Day of the city and Parks support.
Every year SUN InBev invests in the local communities, environment, safety and responsible drinking projects.
