Long-Term Ambition:

We aim to achieve best-in-class environmental and safety performance in our operations. Most of our products’ environmental impacts are in our supply chain. We we will work both in our own facilities
and with our suppliers to reduce impacts and risks across our whole value chain. From a safety point of view, we have a long-term vision for an accident-free Bacardi.
Achieve a 1% reduction in water use efficiency in production sites and a 1% improvement in non-renewable energy efficiency, both compared with fiscal 2014.We continued to reduce the amount of water used in production by achieving a 3.9% reduction. Our water use efficiency improved by 3.2%. We also improved our non-renewable energy efficiency, resulting in our GHG Emissions reduced by 3.7%.status-achieved-purpleAchieve a 3% reduction in volume of water used in production sites and a 15% improvement in GHG Emissions efficiency, both compared with fiscal 2015.

In FY2015 we also achieved a 65% reduction on the LTA Rate in our manufacturing sites compared to FY2014.

status-achieved-purpleObservations rate tracked monthly in all plants as our first leading health and safety performance indicator.

Our long-term target is an overall LTA rate of less than 1 per million of worked hours by 2022. Thanks to the significant improvement achieved in FY2015, we are now anticipating that we will reach this target by 2017.

Continue to maintain certification of all production facilities to the ISO 9001,ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 management system standards.In 2015 we successfully maintained our certification by passing all the planned surveillance audits.status-achieved-purpleMaintain our "Triple Crown" by passing our re-certification audits for ISO 9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 management systems standards.
