ZERO water waste hero.PNG



It is estimated that by 2050, demand for water in the UK will outstrip supply. 

ZERO Water Waste means protecting a vital natural resource. We are determined to use the minimum amount of water throughout the brewing process, and to make the most of every drop.

In high-risk areas globally, Carlsberg Group will replenish 100% of the water consumed at breweries by 2030 and achieve industry-leading water efficiency across all our markets. In the UK, we will achieve water usage efficiency of 2.0hl/hl at our breweries by 2030.




  • Water usage efficiency of 2.0 hl/hl globally and 1.7 hl/hl at breweries in high-risk areas
  • 100% replenishment of water consumption at breweries in high-risk areas

Actions towards ZERO

Our young scientists are on it

Reaching our ZERO targets will not be an easy task. And many of the solutions for eliminating carbon and waste water at our breweries do not yet exist. That's why in the Carlsberg laboratory in Copenhagen, the Young Scientists Community - some of the world’s brightest postdoctoral researchers - is tasked with identifying new methods and technologies to meet our targets.
