The Greenway Foundation is happy to announce this year’s Friend of the River Award Honoree, MillerCoors! MillerCoors will be honored at the Gala on the Bridge, Thursday September 10, 2015. To learn more about the event or to purchase tickets, please click here.
MillerCoors continues to be a leading force in water conservation in Colorado, adopting best sustainable practices from farms to breweries. In 2013, the U.S. Water Alliance awarded MillerCoors a United States Water Prize in recognition of innovative water conservation efforts through its agricultural supply chain, a process that accounts for 90 percent of the company’s water use. MillerCoors collaborates with over 850 independent barley farmers (150 of which are located in Colorado’s San Luis Valley) to save more water, maintain soil health, and reduce pollutant runoff. MillerCoors uses an average of 3.36 barrels of water to brew a barrel of beer, compared to an industry standard of over 6 barrels of water to produce a similar barrel of beer.
For over three decades, MillerCoors has been an integral partner in the continued efforts to preserve and protect the South Platte River watershed, both upstream and downstream of Chatfield Reservoir. Since 2013, MillerCoors, under the brand of Coors Light, has been the title sponsor for The Greenway Foundation’s South Platte RiverFest, enabling thousands of River enthusiasts to engage with Confluence Park– the birthplace of Denver. In addition, MillerCoors’ support of The Nature Conservancy provides critical support of initiatives to protect the headwaters of Denver’s greatest natural resource, the South Platte River. Since 2014, MillerCoors has also provided support for the creation of nearly 30 water quality management jobs at Denver Water and surrounding municipalities in partnership with Emily Griffith Technical College.
It is for these reasons and so many more that The Greenway Foundation is honored to recognize MillerCoors as the 2015 Friend of the River.
The Noble Energy Gala on the Bridge Presented by Wells Fargo honored the newest Friend of the River Ken Salazar. Other speakers included The Greenway Foundation’s Executive Director Jeff Shoemaker, Event Chair Steve Katich, Mayor Michael Hancock, former Denver mayor Wellington Webb, and Noble Energy’s VP of Regional Strategy & Planning Dan Kelly announced the new partnership between The Greenway Foundation and Noble Energy.
The Greenway Foundation would like to thank the many attendees and sponsors of the event for their generous support of the South Platte River!
