In our first year of implementing Brewing a Better Future as well as embedding and integrating sustainability into our daily operations in Asia Pacific, we have made steady progress against our targets.”
“We will continue to engage in stakeholder dialogue, enhancing our regional governance and inspiring our operating companies and employees on sustainable development. With this, I am confident that we can create shared value for all stakeholders and contribute to inclusive growth in this exciting region, particularly in developing economies,” he added.
