Carlsberg Azerbaijan as a part of Carlsberg Group sets a sustainability targets of Together Towards ZERO programme, which expresses our vision for a better tomorrow at a time of serious challenges such as climate change, water scarcity and threats to public health. The programme states our ambitions and targets towards 2022 and 2030.

Moreover, as a socially responsible company, Carlsberg Azerbaijan supports social programs aimed at the development of the Absheron district and renders charity assistance to different social organizations, e.g. in 2015, with the Company’s financial support and in cooperation with the National Olympic Committee there was constructed a public sports ground in the National Park which can be used even by people with disabilities. In 2016 Carlsberg Azerbaijan joined to Global Beer Responsibility Day, which is held annually by brewing companies all over the world and conducted an event with Baku Police Department, devoted to responsible drinking.


Our ambitions:

ZERO carbon footprint

ZERO water waste

ZERO irresponsible drinking

ZERO accidents culture


Each ambition is underpinned by individual and measurable targets for 2022 and 2030.

Partnerships for change

We know that we cannot achieve our ambitions alone. That’s why we’ve been working with partners like WWF, the Carbon Trust, Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and a panel of health experts and behavioural scientists. Together, we sought to set ambitious long-term targets and prepare for action.

Leveraging our scientific heritage

In pursuit of the ambitions presented in Together Towards ZERO, we are setting up the Carlsberg community of young scientists, to be led by the Carlsberg Research Laboratory. We will coordinate and fund the community’s efforts to develop new solutions for climate, water and sustainable brewing.

An integrated approach

Together Towards ZERO is a key element of our Group strategy, SAIL'22, and builds on our purpose of brewing for a better today and tomorrow.

Our ambitions and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Our determination to contribute to a better society harmonises with the global drive for prosperity. It sets out to deliver emission reductions in line with the lower impact set out in the Paris Climate Accord, and aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

We used the SDGs to shape our Together Towards ZERO programme, understand the contribution our business activities make and build resilience along the supply chain.
