Global brewer AB InBev has launched a worldwide competition to find ways to conserve, recycle and reduce the resources used to produce its products on World Environment Day.

The brewer is encouraging employees to get involved in 'green schemes' across the world - and AB InBev employees are already working on more than 176 sustainability projects in 19 different countries.

Jean Lepine, global director of sustainability and the environment for Anheuser-Busch InBev, said: "Everyone has an important role to play in protecting the planet for future generations and we take our responsibility to heart."

In the UK, InBev UK and Anheuser Busch breweries and facilities are celebrating World Environment Day with activities including:

• A 'Bike to Work' programme

• An off-set programme supporting RIPPLE an initiative to plant trees in Africa for people who need to travel to work by car

• At the Samlesbury brewery parts of the plant are stopping for volunteers and contractors to repair leaks and a local primary school has been invited to design posters for World Environment Day

• Recycling facilities will be placed at the entrance of the Wellpark brewery which will also be available for public use.
