BIER Releases Joint Commitment on Climate ChangeMay 20, 2015 | BIER
Signatory members recognize that Climate Change poses one of the greatest challenges to the continued prosperity of society and particularly to developing countries. The challenge necessitates a more comprehensive and ambitious response from society than has been seen to date. Signatory members are prepared to do our part in responding to this challenge by further reducing GHG emissions. However, the global beverage sector’s relative share of global GHG emissions is estimated to be 0.4%. This highlights the importance of collaboration within the sector to develop capacity and solutions that have a broader impact in the supply chain of our products and in the resilience of our society to the impacts of Climate Change.
The Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER) is a technical coalition of leading global beverage companies working together to advance environmental sustainability within the beverage sector.
