A Suffolk-based beer and spirits producer has made its business 100% renewable.
Adnams says its offices, stores, brewery and distribution centre are now supplied by a green tariff, sourcing energy solely from wind, solar and hydropower.
The firm claims it expects to reduce its annual carbon emissions by more than 1,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide, equivalent to the annual greenhouse gases created from powering around 200 UK homes.
A spokesperson for the firm said: “We’re always exploring further options when it comes to renewables, including the transition to renewable heat.
“We are a bit limited by space to install renewable technologies directly at many of our sites but by purchasing verified renewable electricity we are helping to increase demand for these sources and help transition the UK away from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy which we desperately need to do to combat the impacts of increasing global air temperatures.”
Brewer Molson Coors has committed to sending zero waste to landfill across its major manufacturing facilities.
