Growing a Responsible and Sustainable Business

20th December 2012

Did you know that HEINEKEN in the UK employs more than 2,400 people and operates communities across the country? As the UK's largest brewer and cider maker, we are the proud owner of some of the nation’s best loved brands including Foster’s, John Smith’s, Newcastle Brown Ale and Strongbow. We're also a passionate supporter of the great British pub and own more than 1,300 pubs through our Star Pubs and Bars business.

We are passionate about our brands, but we are much more than a brewer, cider maker and pub business. As a major UK employer, we see the tremendous opportunity we have ‘to do good while doing good business’.

2012 has been a remarkable year and few could forget the hugely successful summer as the UK played host to the world and the Olympic Games. We were proud to play our part as a major supporter. But we've also been hard at work on a range of other projects.

Our animated UK story highlights some recent work, but as our ambition is to be the world’s greenest brewer and lead a responsible alcohol industry, we are only at the beginning of our sustainability journey.
