This year, Bud Light has a big reason to celebrate Earth Day. Bud Light Next is officially certified Climate Neutral! This is huge news. Vice President of Bud Light, Andy Goeler, shares the exciting news and plans on how the Bud Light brand will continue to support the net zero by 2040 goal:
Today, as Earth Day 2022 approaches, Bud Light NEXT is proud to announce it has completed the process to become Climate Neutral Certified. By measuring and offsetting last year’s carbon emissions and implementing reduction plans for our future emissions, Bud Light NEXT has met the independent certification standard from Climate Neutral, a nonprofit organization working with brands and consumers to offset greenhouse gas emissions. This new designation comes just two months after hitting store shelves, and beginning this summer, we will proudly feature the Climate Neutral certification on our packaging.
In honor of this milestone, we will also be working with our leading esports partner – League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) – to offset 100% of the electricity used during the LCS Spring Finals in Houston, TX at NRG Stadium taking place April 23-24 – Earth Day weekend – with clean, renewable sources from wind power.
With this milestone, Bud Light NEXT is not only Anheuser-Busch’s first-ever zero carb beer but is also positioned to become the company’s first net zero carbon footprint beer. Bud Light NEXT’s Climate Neutral certification is just one part of the company’s larger ambition to achieve net zero by 2040 through industry-leading sustainability initiatives.
