Carlsberg has poured away a fifth of its emissions since 2015.
The brewer of brands including Tuborg, Holsten and Birrell has slashed its carbon footprint by 20% and limited its water waste by 9% as part of a series of sustainability goals, as well as now sourcing around 46% of its global energy needs from renewable sources.
It has announced plans to swap environmentally-damaging plastic multi-pack rings with a biodegradable glue, a move it expects will help reduce plastic waste by more than 1,200 tonnes annually.
The firm also celebrated net revenue through 2018 rising by 3% to $9.5 billion (£7.3bn), with strong sales for its core and craft beers, as well as its alcohol-free and low-alcohol brands.
Last year the brewer has seen a 50% reduction on its electricity bill at its logistics centre in Denmark following an energy efficient upgrade programme.
