Andy Wales, Head of Sustainability at SABMiller (speaker).

SABMiller, one of the world’s largest brewers, has brewing interests and distribution agreements across six continents. The company's portfolio of brands includes international beers such as Pilsner, Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Miller Genuine Draft and Grolsch.

The company are currently working to be more efficient in their water use and engaging with suppliers. This will help them to not only cut costs, reduce risks but be of benefit local communities. In November 2008, SABMiller announced a commitment to reduce water consumption across their global business. The target is to cut the amount of water used by 25% by 2015. The strategy is built round the '5R' model of water responsibility: pRotect, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Redistribute.

SABMiller and WWF jointly publish a report analysing water use in the beer value chain.
