Molson Coors Selected For The 2012 SAM Sustainability Yearbook

Stocks in this article: TAP

Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE: TAP) announced today that it has been selected for inclusion in the SAM’s Sustainability Yearbook 2012 and awarded two distinctions: 2012 SAM Sector Mover and 2012 SAM Bronze Class. These recognitions come on the heels of two other notable corporate responsibility awards given to Molson Coors in September of 2011 from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (DJSI North America).

"We’re proud to be recognized for our efforts in improving our corporate responsibility performance, in part because we see it as an extension of our overall business performance,” said Bart Alexander, chief responsibility officer for Molson Coors. “As we strive to improve Our Beer Print globally, we are also committed to delivering exceptional results for our shareholders, our employees, our customers and the communities where we live and work.”

The Sustainability Yearbook 2012 is the world’s most comprehensive publication on corporate sustainability and the related challenges and opportunities for companies. Each year, the world’s 2,500 largest companies, as reflected in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index, are invited to participate in SAM’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment. Only the top-scoring 15 percent of the companies in each of the 58 sectors assessed are eligible for inclusion in The Sustainability Yearbook.

Molson Coors was named a 2012 SAM Sector Mover for being among the top 15 percent of SAM Sector Leaders in achieving the largest proportional improvement in sustainability performance compared to the prior year. The company was also given a 2012 SAM Bronze Class distinction for achieving a score within a range of five to 10 percent of the SAM Sector Leader. The 2012 edition of The Sustainability Yearbook was presented at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

In addition to the SAM distinctions, the CDP recently recognized Molson Coors for its efforts to reduce emissions, alleviate the risks of climate change and enforce transparency around climate change management. Molson Coors was featured in both the CDP’s Carbon Performance Leadership Index and the CDP’s Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index. Lastly, the company was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index North America (DJSI North America), marking the first year Molson Coors has been named to the index. Of the 143 companies that achieved a listing, Molson Coors was one of only six included in the Food and Beverage category.
