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.

Reducing our beer-in-hand carbon footprint means innovating across our packaging portfolio. And innovations are best achieved in partnership with other experts. The paper bottle company, Paboco, is helping us achieve breakthroughs in our Fibre Bottle project, developing the world’s first 100% bio-based beer bottle made from sustainably sourced wood fibres.
In 2020, the first of our electric 26-tonne trucks was delivered, following the contract we agreed with Renault Trucks in 2019, to make important steps in the transformation of urban transport.
