Champions Drink Responsibly
Our global campaign for responsible drinking
Our flagship social responsibility campaign "Champions Drink Responsibly" spreads the message of responsible drinking to legal drinking age adults throughout the world through digital and traditional media, as well as special events. This campaign builds upon the Bacardi Limited corporate responsibility initiatives, and a heritage that dates back to the Company’s founding in Santiago de Cuba in 1862.
Four key behaviors
“The Champion’s Way” comprises four key behaviors that consumers can easily adopt: “Have a plan,” “Pace yourself,” “Stay together” and “Drinking and driving don’t mix.”
The “T-Sign” is a way of communicating to others that they should take a break from drinking alcohol. The T-Sign works for consumers in any language, in any bar, anywhere in the world. It is a great way for people to show their support and raise awareness of the campaign.
Mocktails—enjoyable alcohol-free alternatives—are the perfect way for people to pace themselves. MixLab is a handy website and Facebook® app allowing consumers to source a mixologist-created Mocktail, and to follow simple steps to make it themselves.
Since the launch of the Bacardi Limited “Champions Drink Responsibly” campaign in 2008, the goal was to raise global awareness of the program and its important social responsibility messages. Our two Global Social Responsibility Ambassadors – Michael Schumacher and Rafael Nadal – did just that, travelling the world educating consumers about responsible drinking behaviors to better ensure legal drinking age consumers make informed choices about how to enjoy alcohol. The “Champions Drink Responsibly” campaign has evolved into local market “Champions” to further reach consumers where they work and live to show that each one of us can be a Champion. The time is right to take the campaign in a new direction from a global outlook to working with all of our fans at a local level, understanding the varied drinking cultures and traditions in different countries. We launch in Australia with world champion surfer Joel Parkinson as our local “Champions Drink Responsibly” Champion. Joel is a true Champion. He is dedicated to being the best and he embodies the values of ‘The Champion’s Way’ as he is a passionate supporter of responsible drinking. Joel’s message will be amplified by more than 1 million fans on Facebook®, complemented by a strong presence on both Instagram® and YouTube®.
