Suffolk brewer Adnams achieves 100% renewable energy

Adnams, the Suffolk based Brewery and Distillery, is now only using electrical energy from 100% renewable sources across its entire business.

adnams breweryThe move marks the conclusion of a project that has seen Adnams eventually move all its electricity supply to renewable sources over several years. The brewery itself moved to renewables last year with the company's offices, stores and Distribution Centre following suit.

The switch to green energy, using wind, solar and hydro, has reduced Adnams' annual carbon emissions by over 1,000 tonnes of CO2, which is equivalent to the footprint of an average family car travelling three million miles or the annual energy usage of over 200 UK homes.

Ben Orchard, Adnams Environmental Sustainability Manager, comments: "We are committed to supporting a sustainable future to minimise the impacts of climate change. Other businesses are setting the 100% renewable target for 2020 and beyond, so we are proud to be able to demonstrate our early adoption of this."

David Cockshott, Chief Commercial Officer at SmartestEnergy, Adnams' Electricity Supplier, added: "Adnams are supporting the decarbonisation of the UK and specifically the independent generation sector that is leading to a modern decentralised energy system. We hope to see more organisations following suit as we all strive to achieve ambitious carbon reduction targets."

adnams ben orchardAdnams, an independent family business, has been brewing in Southwold on the Suffolk coast for over 145 years and produces a range of cask, keg and bottled beers. Its beers and spirits can be found in pubs and supermarkets nationwide. The company also has an estate of pubs, hotels and a chain of stores.

Over the last few years, Adnams have refined their environmental corporate responsibility into a four-pillar approach of carbon, water, waste and biodiversity, which are all interrelated. The company now has a full time environmental manager, Benedict Orchard, who covers everything from environmental reporting to the supervision of research projects.
