Anheuser-Busch InBev launches Global Smart Drinking Goal
Leading global brewer aims to reduce harmful drinking by end of 2025 by:
- introducing multi-year city pilots to reduce the harmful use of alcohol by
- investing 1 billion USD in social marketing campaigns & related programs
- ensuring at least 20 percent of our global volume is No- or Lower-Alcohol 
- placing a guidance label on all products to increase alcohol health literacy
On December 9th, 2015, Anheuser-Busch InBev announced the launch of four Global Smart Drinking Goals, deepening its commitment to implement effective and collaborative solutions to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. The new goals, to be achieved by the end of 2025, demonstrate an evolution in the company’s approach to responsible drinking, from helping to raise awareness of alcohol responsibility to positively changing behavior by investing in longer-term, evidenced-based approaches to reduce harmful drinking, including underage drinking, binge drinking and drink driving.
“As the leading global brewer, we believe we have a unique role to play in championing a culture of smart drinking globally,” said Carlos Brito, CEO of Anheuser-Busch InBev. “For more than 30 years, we have invested in initiatives to promote responsible drinking and discourage harmful drinking. Now, we are taking our efforts to the next level, moving beyond awareness raising to driving real impact for the communities in which we live and work.”

HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS
We have one position on drunk driving: We oppose it. One drunk driver behind the wheel is one too many, and getting intoxicated drivers off the road has been our goal for decades.
Wanna Go Home With Me Tonight? I'm the Designated Driver is Budweiser's newest designated driver program. By playing on the double entendre tagline, adult consumers are encouraged in a fun way to designate a driver before going out for the evening.
Designated Driver - Anheuser-Busch and its nationwide network of distributors implement numerous designated driver programs in markets throughout the country that promote the use of designated drivers at bars, restaurants and home parties. Consumers typically receive free non-alcohol beverages or discounts on food from bars or restaurants in exchange for being named the designated driver in a group and refraining from drinking on that occasion.
Alert Cab - This program brings together local distributors, cab companies, and retail establishments to provide free or reduced-fare cab rides to bar and restaurant patrons who need a safe ride home. More than 204,000 safe rides were provided by Anheuser-Busch distributors through cab and shuttle programs in 2008. More than 1.4 million safe rides home have been provided since 1989.
Boating Safety - This program, supported by the National Safe Boating Council, reminds boaters, water skiers and other water recreation enthusiasts to be responsible on the water in all activities. The program includes consumer materials that offer tips on hypothermia, safety equipment, distress signals and responsible drinking.

Training for Intervention Procedures (TIPS) - We help provide TIPS server training to educate bartenders, wait staff and store clerks on how to identify and prevent potential alcohol abuse situations and properly check IDs. Developed by Morris Chafetz, M.D., the founding director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, this program also discusses techniques through which servers can help prevent drunk driving, such as calling a cab for patrons who may have had too much to drink, or encouraging friends to provide a safe-ride home.
