Craft Brew Alliance on their way to 2019 goal
Craft Brew Alliance, Inc. announced progress against its three-year target for reducing carbon emissions as part of their just-released 2017 Sustainability Report.
In a statement, the company noted, "We reduced our Scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions per barrel by 4.5%, which means we’re well on our way to achieving our three-year target of an overall 10% reduction by end of 2019." The company also reported, "Our Widmer Brothers brewery in Portland became one of the first breweries in the Pacific Northwest to install a CO2 recovery system, closing the CO2 loop and saving thousands of tons of CO2 from being shipped to the brewery."
"As one of the largest craft brewers in the U.S., we’re committed to investing in innovative ways to improve the sustainability of our business – from reducing our carbon emissions to repurposing more in order to get closer to zero waste, to actively improving the communities where we brew, live, and play," said Julia Person, corporate sustainability manager, CBA. "This year’s report includes some great examples of how our teams keep getting more and more creative, not just with the beers we brew, but in the sustainable ways we brew them."
Craft Brew Alliance is an independent craft brewing company headquartered in Portland, Ore. They operate breweries and brewpubs across the U.S.
