REDUCING HARMFUL USE OF ALCOHOL:
BEER, WINE AND SPIRITS PRODUCERS’ COMMITMENTS

Leading global producers of beer, wine and spirits have made a collective commitment to build on their long-standing efforts to reduce harmful drinking through the Beer, Wine and Spirits Producers’ Commitments. In recognition of the serious effects that the harmful use of alcohol can have, these producers wish to demonstrate their support of international efforts to improve health and social outcomes for individuals, families and communities through the Commitments.


The 12 CEO signatories and their companies are implementing actions in five key areas over the next five years. The key areas being addressed are:

The signatory companies commit to actions in these five areas - many of which have been inspired by best practices in various countries - to strengthen and expand existing efforts and contribute to reducing the harmful use of alcohol in their capacity as producers, distributors, marketers, and sellers of beer, wine, and spirits.

Drink Drive Newsletters

The collective Commitment by signatories to pilot initiatives to reduce drink began in 2010 in six countries:  China, Colombia, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, and Vietnam, and drink driving prevention efforts continue with signatories support at local level.  In 2016, IARD expanded its efforts to Thailand and continued support to programs in Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Namibia, Russia, and South Africa.  These efforts combined with signatories own efforts around the world aim to contribute to the achievement of a 50 percent reduction in deaths and disabilities worldwide by 2020 (SDG Target 3.6). The drink driving summary reports provide an overview of the progress that has been made in these countries over the past year.
