Governance

At Bud APAC, the integration of sustainability principles and considerations into our governance framework plays a significant role in our long-term success. Having robust policies and procedures, with regular performance monitoring, training and disclosures set the foundation for us across our daily operations where we operate.
  • Board Oversight

    Sustainability is our business, and it is embedded in all discussions and decision-making processes at the Board level. The Board reviews sustainability-related issues and performance each quarter, or as necessary, approves strategies and implements actions plans. ESG topics are discussed and reported to the Board.

  • Sustainability Management Structure

    Our senior management members are responsible for ensuring that our business can achieve sustainability in the long term.


    During FY20, we assessed and reshaped the integration of ESG factors into the Company's corporate culture, business strategy and executive-compensation plan. A cross-functional team, led by key members of the Sustainability, Procurement and Legal and Corporate Affairs teams, was formed to manage and continuously improve sustainability performance by identifying and bridging gaps in ESG awareness, practices and policies. The team's compensation is based in part on the Company's overall sustainability performance. Their compensation is linked in part to our 2025 sustainability goals, including RE100 and Carbon Neutrality. Additional compensation elements relates in part to workplace safety , compliance, supply chain safety and sustainability.
