  • Challenge

    SABMiller – the world’s second largest brewer – needed to launch and embed its new sustainability ambition across six continents. SABMiller wanted to reposition sustainability from being a good thing to do, to something that was integral to the company’s success.

  • Insights

    At its heart, the new ambition recognised a fundamental business truth: when the environment and local communities do well, so does SABMiller. And when SABMiller does well, so do local communities and the environment. This virtuous circle takes sustainability beyond a siloed concept; it aligns sustainability directly to the company’s success.

  • Actions

    • Named the new ambition ‘Prosper’.
    • Wrote the Prosper story and defined how SAB Miller should talk about it to employees and the outside world.
    • Developed all communication materials to launch Prosper internally and to sustainability press.
    • Developed internal engagement plan, which used SAB Miller’s intranet and social channels to host debates, spread awareness and encourage people to share ideas.
    • Devised the campaign strategy and created the materials to promote The Mackay Awards, an internal awards programme that recognises the teams bringing Prosper to life and spreads best practice.
  • Results

    The Launch coverage went beyond sustainability press and was featured in BloombergBusiness.

    In its first year alone, the Mackay Awards received around 100 entries from across the business.
