Hops, innovation and flavor have been laying the foundation of our passion for more than 225 years. Along with that comes the responsibility to manage our resources properly. Check out our newest sustainability report to see what we have been up to, and how we plan overcome future challenges.
In line with the 17 goals of the 2030 Agenda, we have formulated sustainable resource management targets for our company.
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.
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.
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.
