UNGC-Sustainable Development Goals

In line with the 17 goals of the 2030 Agenda, we have formulated sustainable resource management targets for our company.

Climate Protection

We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and invest in projects that underline this attitude.

Supply Chain

We are continuously working to create the most efficient, responsible and fair supply chain possible.

Healthy Soil

Together with our growers, we take care to maintain soil health and prepare for future challenges.



Measure & Compare CO2-Emissions

Using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG) methodology, we are able to present and compare Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions in a transparent, accurate and consistent manner.

Emissions From Hop Cultivation

Together with our hop growers and the GHG Emission Calcualtion tool from the LfL in Germany, we have been able to provide transparency around the environmental impact of hop cultivation.

Emissions From Business Travel

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic almost all business travel, especially air travel, was halted immediately. The effect of this was overall positive for our planet, as seen in the chart to the left.


Storage Optimization

Increase bale weight

In order to optimize the use of our storage space, we looked for useful improvements for the rectangular bales. The result: increasing the single bale weight turned out to be a very effective way to make better use of our storage space.

Savings* in Storage, Packaging and Transport

*Assuming an average distance of 14.28 kilometers from the growers to our plant in St. Johann 
With an average loading of 175 rectangular bales per delivery.



In the recent year, we have focused our efforts in changing the way we move goods around the globe in order to reduce our carbon footprint. We have been able to significantly increase transport by rail, and therefore decreasing the amount of hops transported by truck by almost 30%!
