Ask most companies about their sustainability goals, and the answer will be “to become carbon neutral”. Not for Brewdog. The beer brand has long exceeded becoming carbon neutral and is now carbon negative! Through their huge sustainability commitment, the company now emits twice as much carbon from the air as it emits.
Brewdog has invested heavily in wind energy, which does not only power their brewery but also all of their UK bars.
The spent grain, the biggest byproduct of beer production, is being turned into biogas used for renewable vehicle fuel and organic fertilizers. For their logistics, the company uses electric trucks and opts for local brewing wherever possible to reduce the distance the beer has to travel.
To reduce their packaging waste, the company has recently teamed up with the sustainable packaging solutions company Loop that eliminates single-use packaging from supermarket supply chains by offering zero-waste packaging, which can be cleaned, refilled and reused, again and again.
There’s more! In 2020, the eco-brewery purchased a 9,308-acre plot of land in the Scottish Highland. In 2023, they will begin planting their own trees on this land, embarking on one of the largest reforestation projects the UK has ever seen.
A truly inspiring move.
