Anadolu Efes Positive Impact Plan
The world encounters different trends and challenges. As urbanization and demographic changes are accelerating and consumer behavior is altering through digitalization and the development of technology, we need to change the way we produce and consume because the present way is putting pressure on the environment with climate crisis and diminishing resources.
The climate crisis is one of the leading trends affecting agriculture and the food industry. Increasing temperatures, changing rainfall regimes, and frequent extreme weather events are a major risk, especially for the agriculture and food industries. The growing population needs access to food through the sustainable agriculture methods protecting the ecosystems. We believe that the corporate world should be a transformative power that leads to a better future. Accordingly, we have adopted the positive impact creation approach through our value-added business model. We focus on augmenting our positive impact on the major impact areas of the environment, people, community, and value chains. With our innovative “Positive Impact Plan”, we announced our plans to create a better impact by establishing collaborations and partnerships and accentuating our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals.
As a producer obtaining its raw materials from nature, environmental sustainability plays a vital role in our continued operations. Climate change and resource security affect the agriculture and food industries significantly. Thus, tackling climate crisis is one of our highest priority focus areas. In addition, we aim to implement the waste and packaging practices supporting the circular economy and managing the water risks.
