SABMiller Global Networking

SD team in Honduras at their nursery project - responsible for nearly 10% of the reforestation of the country

SAB Miller is unusual as a Global PLC in operating locally in its territories, with semi-autonomous operating companies and local brands. The 'sustainable development' (SD) function of the business therefore consists of

SD team members distributed amongst the companies. As a result of working on the Global Reporting for the business it became clear (in training and other interactions) that there was a hunger for communication and networking. There was clearly a potential 'distributed community of practice' here. I explored the principles of this with the core team and we've gone on to devise a programme of web seminars, to be presented by various international members of the team. These will be related to the SD 'collaboration room' on the extranet to promote a developing 'community of practice'.
