Today, we join the AB-InBev Africa Zone to launch the five Sustainable Development goals for 2025.
Nile Breweries Limited is a proud part of the AB InBev family.
Our global Dream is to bring people together for a better world. Here at Nile Breweries, we contribute to our global Dream by building the ideal company.
Beer is a natural product, and brewing our beers is reliant on a healthy natural environment, as well as on thriving communities. We are committed to improving lives in the communities we are part of and playing a positive role within them. Sustainability is not just related to our business, it is our business.
Sustainability is about protecting our resources for now and for the future. We are doing this by working within our communities to deliver programmes and commit resources that have meaningful impact against our five priorities: Smart Agriculture, entrepreneurship, water stewardship, climate action and circular packaging.
Under the five packages, we have packaged initiatives geared towards promoting sustainability in Uganda.
- Nile Breweries runs a local sourcing project that has over 20,000 farmers in the value chain -
- NBL boasts of two state-of-the-art Biological Treatment System (BTS) at the Jinja and Mbarara respectively. We actively participate in initiatives for the conservation of the River Nile and River Rwizi catchment areas.
- We produce over 520,835NMᵌ of biogas annually and saves +/_Shs616 million, which could have been spent in electricity usage.
- NBL runs two entrepreneurship programmes: Kickstart and a Retailer Development Program geared towards skill development and empowerment of people in our value chain. We also run a secondary school education scholarship worth USD380,000 that currently has 72 beneficiaries from our farmers ‘communities.
Our sustainable development goals are geared to drive progress across our full, integrated supply chain in Africa – starting from the farms that supply our ingredients, to the packaging for our beer and the communities where we do business. We go full circle to bring people together for a better world.
