The growing global population is placing strain on the world's resources, making it increasingly important to use resources efficiently. We work to reduce, reuse and recycle our waste, using resources efficiently and limiting the disposal of waste to landfill.
The majority of the waste we produce is organic matter from the brewing process. Much of our waste has a value and can be reused, either to generate energy, to create new products (recycled glass bottles from broken glass, for example), or for agricultural purposes such as fertilisers or animal feed. We aim for our breweries to become zero waste operations.
