AB InBev spreads “Love Clean Water, Act Green” program to employees and local community

Must read

The current shortage of clean water and the El Nino phenomenon have been seriously impacting production and water supply in Vietnam in 2024.

According to the National Center for Hydrometeorological Forecasting, the El Nino phenomenon will reach high intensity in the first three months of 2024 with a probability of over 90%. After that, the intensity gradually decreases but is still likely to maintain until June 2024 with a probability of about 65%. Heat waves will likely come sooner in the Southern (concentrated in the Southeastern areas), Northwestern, Northern and Central regions. The number of sizzling-hot days in these areas is likely to be higher than the average for many years. It is expected that El Nino will lead to more water consumption, or affect people’s daily activities and production.

Therefore, clean water is currently one of the critical issues that need to be resolved because clean water resources are increasingly dwindling, especially in many localities where saltwater intrusion comes earlier and lasts longer, causing water shortages. Cleanliness becomes more serious. As a beer production company, AB InBev always cherishes and preserves clean water sources because water is the most important ingredient that accounts for a large proportion of beer products. With the effects of the El Nino phenomenon in recent years, protecting clean water resources has become more significant than ever and has become a focus strategy of AB InBev’s ESG plan in Vietnam.

AB InBev spreads the “Love Clean Water, Act Green” program to their employees and the local community

On the occasion of World Water Day on March 22, 2024, the United Nations has campaigned for the theme “Leveraging water for peace”, focusing on the important role of water resources in the stability and prosperity of nations. When water resources are scarce or polluted, when people do not have access to safe water or do not have equitable access to water, tensions can increase between communities and countries. By working together to balance human rights and everyone’s need for water, we can make water a stabilizing force and a catalyst for sustainable development today and tomorrow.

With that spirit, Anheuser-Busch InBev Vietnam coordinated with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Binh Duong Province to organize the workshop: “Love water, act green” for AB InBev employees. With insights from the local authority on implementing a green, healthy lifestyle, and raising the sense of responsibility of people and communities in using energy and water economically and properly, all AB InBev employees understand that water is an essential resource and every person has the right to access and use clean, safe water not only in production but also in daily activities.

Speaking at the conference, Ms. Nguyen Ngoc Thuy, Deputy Director of the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Binh Duong Province, said: “In Binh Duong Province, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment also developed Plan No. 1477/KH-UBND dated April 12, 2018, in sync with the national action plan to implement the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. Collaborating in the ‘Love Water, Act Green’ program today with AB InBev, we would like to call on everyone to be conscious of protecting water sources, exploiting and using water resources economically, maintaining a green, clean, and beautiful environment, contributing to protecting and improving the health of the whole community.”

Craig MacLean, Managing Director of AB InBev BU SEA, speaks at workshop

At the workshop, Craig MacLean, Managing Director of AB InBev BU SEA, said: “For our company’s products, water is the key component. We know that without water, beer cannot be produced. Clean water solutions have always been at the center of our ESG journey in recent years. With today’s conference, we would like to thank the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Binh Duong Province for accompanying AB InBev to spread the spirit of preserving clean water not only to AB InBev employees but also to many individuals and organizations. We do believe that AB InBev’s ‘Love clean water, act green’ program with the accompanying Budweiser brand will bring positive experiences to the community, consumers, and partners in Vietnam to have a future with more cheers.”
