AB InBev Initiates Carbon Emissions Cut in Logistics
By: Environmental Leader June 12, 2014
Anheuser-Busch InBev pledged to reduce the company's carbon emissions in logistics operations by 15 percent by the end of 2017 against a 2013 baseline.
The company estimates that collective logistics improvements could result in up to $200m in savings by the end of 2017.
The new goal includes inbound transportation, outbound transportation and warehousing. In terms of outbound transportation, the reduction represents about 230,000 tons of carbon emissions in total.
A series of new initiatives aims to reduce transportation and logistics-related energy consumption. This includes the use of alternative fuels, smart-driving tools and trucks designed to maximize efficiency. AB InBev says it will continue to drive collaboration with its supply chain partners to expand proven best practices like shared transportation programs already in place in the U.S. and Brazil.
