Our Sustainability Story

HEINEKEN has been around for over 150 years, and we intend to be around for another 150 years by making a difference in society.

As the UK’s leading pub, cider and beer business, the way we make and serve our products can have a significant impact on our customers, communities and the environment. And so working sustainably and responsibly is fundamental to how we do business. It’s how we can protect the future of our business and our planet.

Brewing a Better World is our sustainability strategy. It helps to focus our efforts so we’re able to make a real difference. From growing the barley and apples that go into our beers and ciders, to working with our customers who serve a quality chilled pint – sustainability is embedded right across our value chain.

Green Grip HEINEKEN

Green Grip

We’ve invested £22 million to eliminate plastic rings and printed plastic shrink wrap from our beer and cider multi-pack cans.

We’re replacing plastic rings with a sustainably sourced cardboard holder, the Green Grip, which is  100% recyclable and compostable, whilst being robust and easy to grip.

This new packaging is designed to remove plastic, minimise the use of materials and reduce waste. The Green Grip was introduced into market in August 2020 and the roll-out across all of our brands will continue throughout 2021. By 2022 we will have removed all single-use consumer plastic packaging.

Once the transition from plastic is complete, this’ll remove 517 tonnes of plastic from our supply chain each year.
