Reducing our carbon footprint and driving operational efficiencies remain key priorities for our business. This is why our targets under this pillar addresses issues such as carbon emission, waste water, deforestation, and packaging. As a drinks company, we know that water is and will always be a material resource, and therefore its careful management is a critical aspect of our environment strategy. The Diageo water blueprint defines our strategic approach to water stewardship. This blueprint is based on four core areas where we will increase our efforts: in the sourcing of raw materials; in our own operations; in the communities which we operate; and through local and global advocacy water stewardship efforts.

Partnership with Wecyclers

In April 2018, Guinness Nigeria signed up Wecyclers, a for-profit social enterprise that promotes environmental sustainability, socio-economic development, and community health to support Guinness’s waste management agenda. This partnership is aimed at supporting the implementation of Guinness Nigeria’s 4R waste management strategy, covering REDUCTION, REUSE, RECOVERY and RECYCLING, while also addressing increasing local and global concerns around the environmental issues of waste disposal. This is in line with our commitment to reduce our environmental footprint as well as join the global movement to tackle environmental pollution.
