At AB InBev, we dream big to create a future with more cheers. Our brewing heritage dates back more than 600 years, spanning continents and generations, with a diverse portfolio of well over 500 beer brands including brands such as Budweiser®, Corona® and Stella Artois®. Along with our 169,000 colleagues around the world, we envision a future with more sustainability, innovation, inclusivity, natural ingredients and local impact. Our business 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 are paving the way in climate action through our 2025 Sustainability Goals. We are one of the first 100 companies to have our climate action goal, which is consistent with a 1.5-degree pathway, validated by SBTi. Since 2017, we have reduced absolute GHG emissions in our direct operations (Scopes 1 and 2) by more than 28% and our value chain emissions (Scopes 1,2, and 3) by over 13% per hectoliter. Further, we announced our ambition to achieve net zero across our value chain by 2040.
