BrewDog’s carbon footprint & its route to Carbon Neutrality
The Carbon Architecture team established Brewdog’s direct and indirect emissions, and supported the business as it transitioned to becoming a modern carbon neutral operation.
Carbon Architecture were engaged to help BrewDog design their carbon neutrality journey across the whole business from brewing to hospitality. This work involved designing a commercially and technologically viable roadmap.
Some of the key changes that have been introduced off the back of this work include:
- Wind energy -all of their UK electricity comes from wind, including that used in their bars.
- Bio gas -converting their spent grains into green gas.
- Electric Vehicles -introducing of delivery trucks that run on electricity, and encouraging suppliers to do the same
- Localised brewing -producing in the countries they operate in, means they don’t have to distribute overseas.
