Carlsberg announces ambitious sustainability goals in wake of Trump climate change decision

International brewer Carlsberg announced a host of ambitious sustainability targets on Tuesday, driven by US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement. Called "Together Towards ZERO", the brewer's plans include aiming for zero carbon emissions at its breweries by 2030 and the 100 percent use of renewable electricity at its breweries by the year 2022. Achieving this will include closing down small coal power stations at breweries in China, India and Poland, instead using renewable energy sources such as solar panels, and halving the company's water usage by 2030...Carlsberg said they worked with Carbon Trust to lay out their plans, which were welcomed by Carbon Trust chief executive, Tom Delay: "Carlsberg has taken a genuine leadership position on some of the most critical environmental issues the world currently faces by developing an ambitious long-term business strategy that focuses on delivering a sustainable future," Delay added.
