Sinebrychoff Carbon Neutral 2021_web.jpg

Carbon-neutral brewing in Finland

Sinebrychoff in Finland is the oldest brewery in the Nordic countries and our latest to achieve carbon neutrality. It is the first of the large Finnish breweries to accomplish this milestone and also the world’s first carbon-neutral bottler of Coca-Cola.

As of January 2021, the brewery has been producing beverages with 100% renewable energy – for power and heat – and its remaining Scope 1 and 2 emissions  have been compensated with a Gold Standard certified project with support from South Pole, a leading supplier of climate solutions and developer of emission compensation initiatives. 

Heat recovered from the brewing process through heat pumps now supplies around 26% of the plant’s annual heating needs, and plans to increase heat recovery from wastewater treatment will provide further efficiencies.
