We’ve already taken the first steps towards achieving ZERO carbon emissions at our breweries. Since 2015, we've reduced our relative carbon emissions by 20%, with 46% renewable electricity in 2018. World-class efficiency means innovating within our existing processes as well as implementing large-scale investment projects. We're also forming partnerships to tackle our value chain emissions for the total carbon footprint of our products, or as we say, our beer-in-hand emissions.
Our detailed road maps to reach our targets are continuously evolving as new solutions and technologies emerge. A key task of the Carlsberg Young Scientists Community is to help us develop implementable solutions based on the latest innovations.
The targets set out in Together Towards ZERO are the result of our collaboration with the Carbon Trust.
Their expert analysis provided a carbon footprint of our operations and those of our value chain. It showed that our breweries account for 14% of our carbon footprint, while packaging materials make up 40%, the largest share. Agriculture accounts for 17% and distribution for 14%.
