Welcome to the global social responsibility initiatives website of the Worldwide Brewing Alliance. This website includes details of initiatives, funded by the brewing sector worldwide, to help encourage only the responsible consumption of beer and reduce the harmful use of alcohol.
Brewers play a leading role in, and commit significant financial investment to, all the initiatives included, either individually as brewers, by subscribing to trade associations and their confederations, or by funding Social Aspects Organizations and their international affiliations. The majority of the world’s brewers actively participate in these initiatives and have a proven track record of doing so.
The WBA was established in 2003 with the objective of disseminating and exchanging good practices and information on social responsibility and product integrity issues. One of the ways in which this has been achieved is to publish details of social responsibility initiatives funded by the brewing sector worldwide. Two printed editions have been published to date. The information they contained has been updated and is now included on this website. It also includes initiatives undertaken since the last edition was published in 2007.
It has also compiled regular reports specifically covering Drinking and Driving and in 2011 released a report on environment and utilities sustainability.
