Sustainability

At SAB we started years ago.

SAB has been committed to building a sustainable future for years – starting in South Africa, and going global as part of the AB InBev family.

Brewing quality beer starts with the best ingredients. This requires a healthy, natural environment, as well as thriving communities. We are building a company to last, bringing people together for a Better World, now and for the next 100+ years. That’s why sustainability isn’t just part of our business, it is our business.

Our 2025 Sustainability Goals will have measurable, positive impact on our communities. Through our goal, we are connecting thousands of farmers to technologies and skills, ensuring water access and quality in high-stress communities, creating tangible jobs for future-forward entrepreneurs and businesses; partnering with our suppliers to increase recycling content, and adding renewable electricity capacity to regional grids.

Our 2025 Sustainability Goals

South African Breweries and our holding company, AB InBev, have committed to a number of Sustainable Development Goals, in line with those of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In Africa our goals focus on the following:
