Carlsberg Group, the world’s fourth largest brewer, and its subsidiary Baltika Breweries, Russia’s largest beer company, are to invest up to 1 billion Rubles (around Eur25 million) in environmental projects in Russia related to water, agriculture and climate change. This will be achieved in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

This public-private partnership is the first of its kind in Russia and represents a new way of thinking about environmental sustainability. The partnership is expected to deliver environmental benefits by reducing natural resource consumption, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions, while also improving the agro-ecosystem and water systems.

Isaac Sheps, Senior Vice President of Carlsberg Group in Eastern Europe and President of Baltika Breweries, comments: “This partnership is an historic example of a public-private partnership where we, as market leaders, invest in supporting and sustaining the environment in which we operate. The partnership shows our commitment to investing not only in the Russian economy but also in its environment, and we do so by partnering with one of the most respected and experienced international organizations in the field of industrial environmental sustainability.”

He adds that the Carlsberg Group is the most efficient global brewer in terms of water and energy consumption as well as CO2 emissions within its production facilities, and as one of the top performers in the group, Baltika Breweries has received widespread recognition for its environmental sustainability activities in Russia.

UNIDO has a proven track record of helping industrial organizations improve their environmental standards.
