SABMiller Says Water Security, Efficiency a Priority for Company

Water security and resource efficiency have become and will remain a priority for SABMiller Plc in Africa as climate change exacerbates competition for resources, Chief Executive Officer Alan Clark said.

The London-based brewer has cut its global carbon emissions by 35 percent since 2008 and reduced water use per liter of beer by 28 percent, Clark told delegates at the World Economic Forum on Africa in Cape Town. The company now uses 3.3 liters of water to make one liter of beer, exceeding its 2015 target.

The WEF Global Risks Report ranked water scarcity as the biggest single risk to societies and economies.
