In 2013, 13 of the world’s leading beer, wine, and spirits producers made 10 Commitments to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. Each of these Commitments is supported by a rigorous and specific target, and accompanied by a Key Performance Indicator. These KPIs have been developed in conjunction with Accenture Sustainability Services, who have helped us ensure that they are applied consistently by each signatory across the world, using an appropriate and reliable data collection process. As a result we are confident that the KPIs will provide a robust framework for measuring progress over time. The full indicator protocols can be accessed here.
