BrewDog Unveils New Climate Action Program

BrewDog has unveiled a climate action program with £30 million (€33.2 million) of green investments across its business.

Some of the green infrastructure projects currently underway at the Scottish craft brewer include: the use of wind energy at its brewery and UK bars.

The company said that is it building an on site anaerobic digestor to turn its waste water into clean water and produce food grade C02 to carbonate its beers.

BrewDog highlighted that it is investing in the electrification of its vehicle fleet.

“The scientific consensus is clear: we are sleep walking off the edge of a cliff. Unless the world confronts the urgent carbon problem, science tells us that the results will be catastrophic," said James Watt, BrewDog CEO.

Carbon Negative

The brewer also announced that it is to become carbon negative, and that it will remove 'twice as much carbon from the air than it emits every single year'.

"The change our world and society needs, has to come from progressive business and we want to play our role and nail our colours to the mast,” he added.

BrewDog opened its first Dublin premises the ‘Outpost’ in Capital Dock at the end of 2019.
