HEINEKEN Vietnam backs sustainable growth for a better Vietnam

On 28 June 2017, HEINEKEN Vietnam announced its achievements and future directions for sustainable development through the release of its 2016 Sustainable Development Report. Carrying on the journey "For a Better Vietnam" that it has embarked on for the past 25 years, HEINEKEN Vietnam has been recognized not only by the signature green and its popular brands but also its sustainability on the basis of increasing its positive impact on PEOPLE, PLANET and PROSPERITY in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This is also the third consecutive year HEINEKEN Vietnam has published a GRI accredited full Sustainability Report for Vietnam.

Leo Evers, Managing Director of HEINEKEN Vietnam, said, "We are delighted with our significant progress in pursing sustainable development to date. However we also understand that there is still a lot more to be done. In 2016, we moved closer to brewing 100% from renewable energy at all of our breweries whilst creating close to zero waste. We strengthened our partnerships and programs that promote responsible drinking and continued to invest heavily in developing our people and our communities. Whilst there are more challenges ahead, we believe that our "Brewing a Better Vietnam" journey will continue to add more value to people, planet and prosperity in Vietnam."
