The Carlsberg Foundations. Founded in pursuit of better.


A beer that gives back.

The Carlsberg Foundation is one of the world's oldest industrial foundations and supports scientific research that helps address a wide range of regional and global challenges. It’s been this way ever since it was established by our founder J.C. Jacobsen, in 1876.

Today, through The Carlsberg Foundations, almost 30% of our dividends* go to supporting projects in the arts, science and developing the crops of the future. How refreshing.
