Boston Beer Calculates Scope 1, 2 Emissions

The Boston Beer Company, a manufacturer of brands such as Samuel Adams, Truly Hard Seltzer, Twisted Tea, Dogfish Head and Angry Orchard, calculated its Scope 1 and 2 emissions for the first time.

The alcoholic beverage company also saved 212,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy at its Pennsylvania brewery by replacing approximately 3,500 fluorescent light fixtures with energy-efficient LEDs.

The Boston Beer Company also created an Executive Sustainability Committee composed of executive and senior leaders from across the company, established ESG "Cornerstones of Priority" to shape how resources and energy are directed, and expanded its disclosures to report in accordance with GRI and SASB. The company released these details and more in its 2022 ESG Report, which aligns with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

"This year was one of increasing momentum for The Boston Beer Company," said Jill Westra, senior manager of sustainability for The Boston Beer Company, in a statement. "We made important progress towards formalizing our corporate sustainability strategy and priorities, including leveraging the results of our materiality assessment and the expertise of our newly formed Executive Sustainability Committee to establish new Cornerstones of Priority. This work will guide our ESG efforts on topics most important to our business and stakeholders in the years to come as we build upon the progress made in 2022 towards improving our company, protecting our planet, investing in our coworkers and contributing to our communities."
