Anheuser-Busch pledge $1bn investment
Anheuser-Busch plan to invest more than $1billion over the next two years in its facilities to drive economic prosperity in communities across the U.S.
The Missouri-based brewer hope to further fortify its operations and strengthen its connections with consumers as the company looks ahead to recovering from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Anheuser-Busch and our brands have always been there for the times that matter, and it matters now,” said Michel Doukeris, CEO of Anheuser-Busch.
“This past year has required that we all adapt in unexpected and challenging ways, but our connection and commitment to supporting our people, communities and partners remains unchanged.
“Right now, our big dream is the recovery of our country. It’s the reopening of our neighbourhood restaurants and bars, it’s cheering on our favorite teams and gathering together in person.
“We are here to find a better way to lead a safe and strong recovery, and we’re starting by investing across our U.S. supply chain to protect the industry and the millions of people who rely on it for their livelihoods. These investments are immediate and happening now.”
This capital expenditure program across 26 states will expand Anheuser-Busch’s U.S. operations, support ongoing industry job creation and retention, stimulate economies in communities across the country, and enable sustainable innovations.
Nearly $100 million of this planned investment will go towards sustainability projects including solar panel instalments, water treatment and other similar initiatives over the next two years.
Anheuser-Busch owns and operates more than 120 facilities across 27 states and employs more than 19,000 people.
