The Carlsberg Group is taking action on global climate challenges with ambitious new targets set out in its Together Towards ZERO sustainability strategy.

Carlsberg has targets of eliminating carbon emissions at its breweries by 2030 through the use of climate-friendly technologies, and engaging its value chain to reduce its beer-in-hand carbon footprint by 30% by 2030.

The brewer also has a 2022 target of using 100% renewable electricity at its breweries by 2022. In line with this commitment, Carlsberg recently joined RE100 - the collaborative, global initiative of influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity.

  • 0% carbon emissions at its breweries
  • 30% reduction in beer-in-hand carbon footprint


  • 50% reduction in carbon emissions at its breweries
  • 100% electricity from renewable sources at its breweries
