How Does Custom Reporting Work?
There are two ways to create your custom Molson Coors corporate responsibility report. You can browse the Responsibility section of our website and select Add to My Report for topics that interest you; or, you can go to our custom report builder (link to report builder page) and check the box next to each topic to prepare a report built just for you.
In 2009 we established our Responsible Sourcing Principles, which extended our values and corporate responsibility practices through our supply chain. In May 2012, these were superseded by Our Beer Print Supplier Standards which set out our minimum compliance standards. We expect to work with our suppliers towards these minimum standards, and we will strive to consistently drive up standards together and achieve excellence.
Our commitment to an ethical and sustainable supply chain is absolute, committed to working with our supplier base to ensure:
- They are fully compliant with local laws and legislation.
- They are satisfying the needs of our business around quality, reliability, innovation and value for money.
- They are assessing their sustainability risks and identifying opportunities for improvement and innovation.
- We collaborate on continuous improvement
We expect our suppliers and members of our supply chain to make every effort to limit the environmental impact of their business operations and to have appropriate programs in place to help achieve this objective. Additionally, we also expect suppliers to have in place effective environmental management systems that are appropriate for the nature and scale of their business, and that identify and mitigate environmental risks. Our key environmental focus areas are: energy, emissions to air, natural resources, biodiversity, water, waste, and pollution.
Molson Coors commits to source from suppliers who grow, produce and deliver agricultural brewing ingredients in a manner that recognizes and embraces our quality, safety and sustainability standards. We support our suppliers and producers in achieving this by working with them to recognize and adopt the six principles of our Agricultural Brewing Ingredients Policy. The policy covers (as a minimum) barley, wheat, corn and hops. The implementation and governance of this policy is supported by the company’s wider sustainable procurement program and standards.
In 2011 Molson Coors and MillerCoors joined Sedex, a not for profit membership organization which enables companies around the world to share ethical data within their supply chains. Sedex and its risk assessment system meet our needs and add value in two particular areas:
- The ability to provide the business a reasonable degree of assurance that the suppliers with whom we are engaged are meeting basic human rights and environmental practices which are consistent with our Beer Print Supplier Standards.
- Self-assessments will enable us to better recognize each competing supplier's contributions or risks in sustainability in a more fair and comparable way to discern overall best total value to meet specific business needs. Suppliers will be given feedback each year in terms of which areas need to be improved.
We are currently working on devising a 3 year roadmap which will seek to further embed sustainability into our Procurement strategy.
