To avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we need to limit global warming to below 2°C, aiming for 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. That is why we have set science-based targets to the 1.5°C level, aiming for zero emissions from our brewery by 2030, and a 30% reduction
in our beer-in-hand carbon footprint – our entire value chain.

Actions towards ZERO

A better beer bottle

Probably the best beer in the world deserves nothing less than the best bottle! So when we launched the new perfectly balanced Carlsberg Danish Pilsner in March 2019, we worked closely with our glass suppliers to develop a bottle to be proud of. It’s 10g lighter than the one it replaced. In just the first year this saved over 134 tonnes of glass across the Carlsberg portfolio!
