A7(a). Community Actions to Tackle Alcohol Harms
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 12 May, 2015
Please describe how you have supported local community activity to tackle alcohol's social and health harms, over the last year (2000 characters limit):
Our commitment to community actions is an essential part of our business. In Glasgow we have built much stronger community links over the last couple of years. This is helping to generate a better understanding of the role our products play in the local community community.
We have increased employment and launched an apprenticeship scheme in Glasgow. We have also given the local community greater access to our site through tours and open days. This all helps engender a more positive dialogue and relationship with alcohol.
We are working with the Best Bar None and use our salesforce in Scotland to expand the reach and quality of outlets involved. we are also actively involved in the qualitative assessment of the effectiveness of Best Bar None in the Airdrie and Coatbridge trial.
Through our Tenents training Academy, we have now trained thousands people working in the hospitality sector and responsible serving is a key element in the training programme.
Finally, we continue to argue the case for the introduction of minimum unit pricing. We are working alongside the Scottish government in supporting this initiative. We believe this would have significant impact in addressing the harms caused by alcohol in our community.
