Waste Reduction at MillerCoors

2011 Highlights: Environmental Stewardship

  • We formed the MillerCoors Environmental Council to help us remain a world-class environmental partner in the communities where we work.
  • We installed a new cooling system that uses recirculated water, saving 100 million gallons of water annually — enough to fill more than 1 billion 12-ounce cans.
  • We reduced our energy consumption across our eight major breweries by 4.3 percent since 2008.
  • By the end of 2011, we reduced the weight of our packaging materials by 17.2 million pounds. That is equal to the weight of more than 1 million kegs of beer.
  • The Eden Brewery established a new recycling center as part of its ongoing commitment to remain zero waste to landfill.
