PEERS 2019 keynote speaker discusses sustainability efforts of Anheuser-Busch
With over 100 brands and 23 breweries nationwide, Anheuser-Busch is a high profile company that depends on natural resources and takes sustainability very seriously. In 2018, Anheuser-Busch launched its U.S. 2025 Sustainability Goals, focused on four key areas: renewable electricity and carbon reduction, water stewardship, smart agriculture, and circular packaging. Over the past year, the company has found new, innovative ways to reduce the environmental impact of their entire supply chain in pursuit of these ambitious goals and will share details of their sustainability journey at PEERS 2019.
Angie Slaughter, vice president of sustainability procurement at Anheuser-Busch, will be the keynote speaker at TAPPI’s 2019 Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling, and Sustainability (PEERS) Conference, which will be held October 27-30 in the brewer’s “home city” of St. Louis, MO. As vice president, Slaughter is responsible for working cross-functionally to lead the company’s sustainability goals for the North America Zone operations. PEERS attendees can learn more about Anheuser-Busch’s sustainability initiative during Slaughter’s keynote presentation on October 28th.
PEERS is considered the premier technical event focusing on the latest advances in technology, as well as fundamental process knowledge and control issues mills face each day. Its comprehensive technical program includes eight program tracks emphasizing new methods and best practices to help mills optimize operations and reach their sustainability goals.
The Conference also offers a tutorial, workshops, and committee meetings focused on various aspects of the pulping and bleaching process. In addition, a New Technology Showcase, Hot Topics Breakfasts, exhibits, and multiple special events will take place during the four-day event.
PEERS is co-located International Bioenergy & Bioproducts Conference (IBBC) and the 12th Research Forum on Recycling. Attendees can attend all three events for only one registration fee.
