Efficient Use of Resources
As the largest beverage producer, Obolon depends on agricultural raw materials which can be heavily impacted by a severe climate change, which is an issue of the company's concern.
«Sustainable development of Obolon implies the daily search for and use of innovation means to minimise environmental impact. We achieve this with the help of a cost reduction resulting from savings in electric energy, water and other resources. Annually Obolon increases the volumes of waste recycling on its sites, including brewer's grain, yeast and grain waste and plastic waste».

- gradual reduction of atmospheric emissions
- rational use of water resources
- maximum recycling of production waste
Earth Hour was initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Sydney in 2007 and in a year became a worldwide environmental initiative. In 2015, the global campaign was supported on 5 continents by 170 countries and 7,000 cities and towns, more than 55 of which are located in Ukraine.
Since 2010, Obolon has been participating in the global ecological initiative Earth Hour of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). For 5 years in a row the company has demonstrated its high consideration of environmental issues. In 2014, the company saved about 300 kW of electric energy within the initiative.
«For an hour of low-mode work Obolon saved the same volume of electricity that is consumed by an average family in a month. This is the example we use to inspire other companies and the community for taking responsibility for the "health" of nature. Support of the international initiative is not only 60 blackout minutes, but also a symbol of change the country and the world is striving for».

The evolution of the resource use
Due to a range of energy efficiency and economising measures, the production impact the corporation exerted on the environment continued to decrease. In addition, production of all categories of beverages in 2015 declined by 9% year-on-year. Hence, the production decrease has reduced the use of resources.
