Preserving and replenishing water

We are committed to preserving and replenishing water where we operate across the world.

By 2030, we will ensure that every drink we produce will take 30% less water to make than it does today.

We have made progress recycling water in the cooling processes at our U.S. Virgin Islands distillery.

We implemented water-saving initiatives across our sites. These include optimizing boiler operations at our Shelbyville, Kentucky distillery, upgrading our water purification process at our Gimli, Manitoba, distillery and our holistic sustainability plan at our Valleyfield, Quebec facility.

Last year we removed 141 million cardboard boxes from our premium Scotch portfolio across the world.

In our first-year partnership with the ‘Don’t Trash Glass’ program, we have collected 2.2 million pounds of glass from bars and restaurants and local businesses in Illinois.

The program was recently launched in Kentucky to empower local businesses to help increase the region’s volume of recycled glass.

We transitioned our plastic 50ml. formats to 100% recycled plastic bottles (rPET) in North America. Our Seagram’s 7 Crown bottles are also made from 100% recycled PET.
