We had such a great Twitter chat with Heineken a few months ago, that we brought the experts together again for Round 2!
Today on Twitter, we learned about what “local sourcing” means to Heineken by hosting a Twitter Chat at the hashtag: #BaBF.
A cornerstone of the Heineken sustainability strategy, Brewing a Better Future (#BaBF), is focused on growing the percentage of locally-sourced ingredients in its raw material supplies. The company wants to operate in a way that improves the quality of life for local individuals and communities; helps drive inclusive growth particularly in economies in Africa; and helps the environment and ensures a consistent supply of raw materials.
CSR Expert Aman Singh and TriplePundit led an hour-long conversation with Heineken’s sustainability leadership team, including:
- Michael Dickstein (MD) – Director, Global Sustainable Development
- Paul Stanger (PS) – Local Sourcing Director, Africa & Middle East Region
- Edwin Zuidema (EZ) – Global Category Director, Raw Materials
Here’s the Storify summary of the conversation:
