    World Environment Day (WED) which is an annual event to promote positive environmental action has become the biggest and most widely celebrated global day. With India being the host country for the World Environment Day 2011 celebrations, SABMiller India joins the cause and promotes the environment conservation which will secure the future for our next generation.

    On the occasion of the World Environment Day on 5th June, SABMiller India completely dedicated a week full of green activities not just to create awareness but made each employee take a pledge that will later add value in making a difference in the environment.
