The Together Towards Zero initiative also pledges that the group will exclusively use renewable electricity at its breweries by 2022.
The organisation says that the programme is a response to increasing consumer demand for sustainable products.
Carlsberg Group CEO Cees ‘t Hart said: “Global challenges such as climate change and water scarcity require strong collective action, and with Together Towards Zero, we’re setting new industry standards for science-based and partnership-driven sustainability.
“I'm certain that in achieving our targets we'll create efficiency improvements, risk reduction and a more resilient business that exists in harmony with local communities and the environment.”
The pledge is part of a wider move by Carlsberg as part of its Sail’22 strategy, which also seeks to cut down on water wastage, irresponsible drinking and work-related accidents.
Carbon Trust chief executive Tom Delay said Carlsberg had taken “genuine leadership” on the issue of sustainability.
He said: “Just getting better is no longer good enough. Carlsberg’s ambitions go above and beyond the levels of carbon reduction that science tells us are necessary to keep global warming below 2°C.
“Carlsberg has taken a genuine leadership position on some of the most critical environmental issues the world currently faces, by developing an ambitious long-term business strategy that focuses on delivering a sustainable future.”
Last week, the UK arm of the group unveiled its new crafted handbook, featuring five new draught and 12 new speciality beers.
