Goal 2. Zero hunger
By 2030, the UN seeks to ensure that food production systems are sustainable, and to introduce agricultural practices that increase productivity and production; help maintain ecosystems; improve land and soil quality; and strengthen our capacity to adapt to climate change, extreme weather phenomena, droughts, flooding, and other natural disasters.
During 2017 Alko's responsible purchases strategy will be developed by adding the respective environmental criteria based on an environmental life cycle analysis of primary production and the supply chain of alcohol drinks. This LCA was commissioned jointly by the Nordic alcohol monopolies and it was completed in late 2016.
Goal 3. Good health and well-being
By 2030, the UN seeks to strengthen the prevention of substance abuse and the treatment of addiction. This includes both narcotic drug abuse and the harmful use of alcohol.
The cornerstone of Alko's responsibility efforts will continue to be responsible sales and reducing the harmful effects of alcohol consumption through both our own as well as cooperation programmes, including experimentation with completely new approaches.
Goal 6. Clean water and sanitationBy 2030, the UN seeks to improve water quality by, for example, minimising emissions of hazardous chemicals, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater released into nature, and substantially increasing water recycling and reuse all across the world.
Water-related targets will be included in Alko's responsible purchases’ environmental criteria during 2017.
Goal 7. Affordable and clean energy
The UN seeks to double global energy efficiency by 2030.
Alko’s energy related targets are by year 2020
- reduce electricity consumption by 10% compared with year 2017
- reduce CO2 emisisons by 50% compared with year 2017
