This report from the British Beer and Pub Association lays out 10 commitments to sustainability, including a 67 percent reduction in CO2 emissions and 42 percent decrease in water used per liter of beer by 2020.

If the association's members achieve those goals, they would go far beyond the government's own goals and requirements: For CO2 emissions, that goal represents a 67 percent reduction over a 1990 baseline (compared to the government's 34 percent commitment); for water efficiency, an 11 percent increase would equal a 42 percent decrease in water used per liter of beer over a 1990 baseline.
