NATURALLY RESPONSIBLE

SUSTAINABILITY

Taking responsibility for future generations, since 1794

For over 200 years, BarthHaas has been making decisions that have secured the long-term future of the business. As a family-run operation, we always keep the interests of future generations in mind. And as experts in hops as a natural product, we are particularly conscious of the challenges of climate change. Our certified sustainability report documents the implementation of our principles.

The sustainability strategy covers several action areas, which also consider solutions for our customers and suppliers.

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

To add long-term value, we see it as our role to research everything there is to know about hops, and to make the knowledge we discover available to our partners.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

The specially developed BarthHaas Safety Concept features an early-warning system to guarantee transparency for our growers and customers and the best possible purity of hop.

REDUCING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Our business is constantly looking for ways of cutting carbon emissions permanently. A range of measures have already been introduced, including a shift from road to rail transport, for example.

IMPROVING RESOURCE EFFICIENCY

BarthHaas is reducing its consumption of raw materials, energy and water. For example, the new heat recovery system at our hop production plant operated by Hopfenveredlung St. Johann has allowed us to significantly reduce our use of heating oil.

SOCIAL CONTRIBUTION

BarthHaas works with its staff, customers and suppliers to support good causes and charitable organizations. Our Funding Guidelines allow us to ensure our contribution has specific objectives, making the best possible use of everyone’s efforts and reflecting our business values.
