Molson Coors has committed to eliminate landfill waste from each of its four UK breweries by the end of 2012.
Supply chain director, Lee Finney said: “Achieving our goal will have commercial and environmental benefits both now and in the future. Reaching zero production waste to landfill across our breweries not only requires excellent inventory management but innovation and collaboration too.
“In addition, many of the by-products of the brewing process are valuable resources for farmers and food producers, as well as being a potential energy source.”
The brewer’s 2010 global corporate responsibility reporting shows its UK and Ireland business has decreased waste to landfill by 27 per cent in recent years, saving over £60,000 in landfill tax over two years.
