ANHEUSER-BUSCH’S NEW NIKOLA HYDROGEN ELECTRIC FLEET

Protecting the planet gives us PURPOSE BEYOND BREWING.

Our plan is not just hot air, it is clean hydrogen fuel.

At Anheuser-Busch, we are always searching for ways to drive our industry’s environmental sustainability practices forward.

Putting our financial investment behind our purpose beyond brewing, Anheuser-Busch has ordered up to 800 hydrogen-electric powered semi-trucks from Nikola, a pioneer in hydrogen-electric renewable technology. The zero-emission trucks, which will be able to travel between 500 and 1,200 miles and refuel within 20 minutes, will be integrated into Anheuser-Busch’s dedicated fleet beginning in 2020.

Thanks to this agreement with Nikola and other partners, Anheuser-Busch plans to convert our entire long-haul dedicated fleet to renewable energy-powered trucks by 2025.

Anheuser-Busch was proud to be a part of Nikola CEO Trevor Milton's entrance to Nikola World event, where he unveiled the zero-emission trucks. This ceremony was the first peek at our partner’s innovations that will help to lead the transportation industry into a global zero-emission future.

  • Throughout Anheuser-Busch’s supply chain, we will reduce our carbon dioxide emissions 25% by 2025.
  • Anheuser-Busch aims to convert 100% of our long-haul dedicated fleet to sustainably powered trucks by 2025.

Protecting the planet by making strides to achieve our sustainability goals gives us purpose beyond brewing.
