#39 Fred Linton – MillerCoors Environmental Sustainability


We define sustainability as making a positive and meaningful impact on the social, environmental and economic issues that affect our business, employees and other stakeholders.

Great Environment
Our environmental sustainability strategy strives to reduce environmental impacts at every stage of the brewing process and focuses on three main areas:

  • Reducing water use in our manufacturing facilities and agricultural supply chain
  • Reducing our carbon footprint across our value chain
  • Eliminating waste at all major manufacturing facilities

I’ll share some of the gains across MillerCoors and some of the gains we’ve achieved at the Golden Brewery and how we achieved them.
