Heineken and UNIDO to Support Sustainability in Developing Markets

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and Heineken, the international brewer, plan to work together in a range of sustainability issues that will promote inclusive growth in developing countries.

The new partnership will focus mainly on water stewardship initiatives in countries and regions classified as “water-scarce”. The initiatives will directly support Heineken in the delivery of its commitment to reduce water consumption to 3.3 hl/hl in breweries located in these regions. The activities will initially concentrate on breweries in Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria and Tunisia.

The partnership will also investigate opportunities to expand Heineken’s Supplier Development Programme to more countries in Africa as part of the company’s commitment to source 60 per cent of its raw materials locally and thus improve the livelihoods of local communities. The company currently runs initiatives in nine countries covering more than 100,000 farmer families across the continent.

A third component of the partnership will be a feasibility study to identify potential renewable energy sources for breweries in Africa in order to improve both cost structure and environmental impact. It will also examine the potential to provide excess energy to local communities.

Sean O’Neill, Chief Corporate Relations Officer of Heineken, said: “This international partnership with UNIDO will help us deliver the commitments that lie at the heart of our Brewing a Better World philosophy. More important, it supports our desire to create an approach to inclusive growth across all of our stakeholders.”
