2030 SUSTAINABILITY GOALS
OUR STRATEGIC ACTION PLAN
Targeting zero for the environment.
Net Zero Emissions in Operations
In order to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees as per the
Paris Agreement, we need to reduce our carbon emissions.
Urgent steps must be taken to combat the climate crisis, and
we are contributing to this struggle with the goal of achieving
net zero emissions across all our operations by 2030. We
plan to achieve this goal by investing in carbon balancing
projects and energy efficient applications, using renewable
energy sources, and evaluating renewable energy installation
Energy Efficiency in Production
At Anadolu Efes, we see improving energy efficiency beyond
our legal obligations as an integral part of our activities.
One of our main goals is to ensure conscious energy use
and continuously track our performance while maintaining
quality production performance. Therefore, we monitor and
support energy efficiency at every stage of our operations,
from purchasing products and services to implementing new
projects and investments. In all our activities, we use energy
efficiently to reduce our carbon footprint. Our increased
energy efficiency enables us to achieve more energy
efficient operations. We will continue to develop projects
that will help us reach our efficiency targets and achieve net
zero emissions as fast as possible across all our operations.
Renewable Energy Supply in Production
One of the main ways an organization can reduce its impact on
climate is by using renewable energy. At Anadolu Efes, we aim
to meet 100% of our electricity needs from renewable energy as
part of our carbon footprint reduction efforts.
Balancing our Carbon Footprint
In line with our energy efficiency goals, we are making every
effort to use renewable energy to meet our operations’ energy
and electricity needs, and we are also evaluating our carbon
balancing options to minimize our climate impact.
Circular economy models play a key role in reducing natural
resource consumption and pollution. At Anadolu Efes, it has
been our priority since day one to reduce the amount of waste
resulting from all our activities and to maximize our recycling rate.
In this context, we are working to developing applications that will
contribute to the circular economy based on the 3R model, which
consists of 3 steps: reduce, reuse and recycle.
We will certify that all our operations with zero waste - preventing
and reducing waste generation and ensuring that all waste is re-used
in the economy. All our malt and beer plants in Turkey took this step
last year, earning their Zero Waste Certificate
We are working to minimize the impact caused by the
packaging of our products by reducing the amount
of packaging, and increasing its reuse and recycling.
The R&D activities that we carry out together with
our business partners are very important as we seek
to reduce the impact of our packaging to the lowest
possible level. In this context, we focus on consuming
fewer resources and increasing the use of recycled/
recyclable materials in our packaging. We will continue
to design the packaging volume and weight of our
products to produce minimal waste, and support reuse
and recycling efforts to reduce the environmental impact
caused by packaging.
Considering the ever-increasing amount of plastics
in landfills, and the pollution it creates in marine
ecosystems, plastic pollution is one of today’s most
important environmental problems. Although our plastic
consumption is very low, we remain part of the solution
and avoid the use of materials that cause plastic waste
wherever possible, both in our packaging and in our
products. We will continue our R&D work with our
entrepreneurship ecosystem, suppliers, and universities
to reduce the use of plastics.
Increasing our support for social
We believe the social value that we create through our
investments in society as investments in the future. We will
continue to invest in culture, the arts, sports, and projects
that support local development and women’s empowerment,
cooperating with all our stakeholders to increase the social
impact of these projects.
Anadolu Efes has been supporting culture and the arts nonstop for 34 years. Our goal is to make many different fields
of art more accessible, from cinema to theater, and from
visual arts to music and design. We will continue to invest
in culture and art that inspires, empowers, educates, and
Local Development and Women’s Empowerment
As a signer of the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles,
our company’s aim has always been to ensure women’s
participation in the labor force and to raise awareness
about gender equality. In this context, we will continue
social benefit projects that both support local development
and ensure women’s empowerment in society.
Sustainable Farming and Empowering Farmers
We support the farmers who produce our raw materials and
consider them to be among our most important stakeholders.
We also promote sustainable farming practices to protect the
soil. By improving our farmers’ abilities to practice sustainable
farming every day, we are continuing our support for the soil
and for the farmers who produce our raw materials.
By 2030, all our farmers will be educated on sustainable
Empowering Young Entrepreneurs
We will continue to support the entrepreneurial ecosystem
and cooperate with young people to help them leverage the
power of innovation to realize their dreams and achieve their
Our heart beats faster on the court. We’ve all been following
the Anadolu Efes Sports Club for 45 years. Indeed, it
introduced many of us to basketball, and was the reason
a wide audience fell in love with it. Since its foundation,
Anadolu Efes Sports Club has accomplished many firsts - it
was the first team to bring a European championship to our
country, and it won the Euroleague Championship again in
2021. We will continue to invest in sports and activities that
inspire feelings of endeavor, courage, victory and excitement.
We are empowered by equal
Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment
We support equal opportunity for everyone through
our inclusive corporate culture. We will continue our
efforts to increase awareness of equality among all
our employees and stakeholders, and develop more
opportunities to female employees.
We will implement programs to certify that we ensure
gender equality in all our operations. In this context,
we took an important step towards registering our
success by obtaining the Equality for Women at Work
Certificate in Turkey.
Our Gender Equality Program main focus areas:
- · Increasing the influence of women in decisionmaking roles
- · Improving work-life balance
- · Increasing women’s access to nontraditional jobs
- · Ensuring non-sexist communication
- · Preventing activities that might interfere with
women’s participation in the labor force together
with all our stakeholders
Through our work, we will increase our rate of
female employees from 30% to 51%.
