For more than 160 years, Anheuser-Busch and our brands have proudly been there for the times that matter - and it certainly matters now. We leveraged our unique capabilities and footprint of more than 120 facilities across 27 states to take an active role in response to COVID-19 through efforts like producing and distributing hand sanitizer and hosting blood drives in stadiums across the country.
As our country continues focusing on economic recovery, we believe we can make an impact by investing in the rebuilding of America and supporting those that support us – our people and communities.
INVESTING IN OUR PEOPLE, COMMUNITIES AND OPERATIONS
As the country's largest brewer and leading American manufacturer, we are doing our part to support the more than 2.1 million jobs related to the beer industry with a planned investment of more than $1 billion over the next two years in our work and workplaces to drive economic prosperity in communities across the U.S.
This planned investment across 26 states will expand our U.S. operations, enable sustainable innovations, stimulate economies and strengthen our connection to communities across the nation. Of this investment, nearly $100 million will go towards sustainability projects, including solar panel installments, water treatment, and other similar initiatives over the next two years.
OUR IMPACT DOES NOT STOP THERE
Investing in our work and workplaces is just one part of our ongoing commitment to lead the safe, strong reopening of our country and reigniting our economy. Our focus on investing in sustainable brewing practices, our efforts to support the bar and restaurant community, and an enduring commitment to sourcing our ingredients from more than 900 American farms help to protect the livelihoods of those across our entire supply chain—from farmers and factory workers to bartenders and truck drivers.
NOW IS THE TIME TO DREAM BIG
As the country's leading brewer, we are uniquely positioned to leverage and maximize our unique relationships and capabilities to make a positive impact on our communities, our planet and our people. We take this responsibility seriously and are committed to doing our part.
We dream big to create a future that everyone can celebrate, and everyone can share. Here's to a future with more cheers.
