Beer and alcoholic beverage company Anheuser-Busch InBev has set its sights on stronger environmental protection with a number of global goals and special emphases on China.

The goals were announced on AB InBev's fifth annual global celebration of World Environment Day, an initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme. The goals focus on addressing the challenges faced by key areas for beverage facilities and barley growing regions.

The company plans to engage in watershed protection measures at 100% of its facilities located in China, as well as Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Mexico, Peru and the United States.

AB InBev also says it wants to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions per hectoliter of production by 10% around the globe, but in China it is focused on a 15% reduction per hectoliter.

Employees are also encouraged to make a commitment to be environmentally responsible in their personal lives by recycling, carpooling or biking to work and saving water by shortening their showers, skipping shaving and turning off the water while brushing their teeth.

AB InBev says it will continue to improve operational efficiency by setting goals for further water and energy use reductions and, for the first time, setting global goals on packaging materials reduction and eco-friendly cooler purchases.
