Carlsberg Sverige is running a brewery in Sweden with zero carbon emissions from its energy consumption.
Based in Falkenberg, the brewery is 100 per cent powered by biogas and green electricity and is part of the group’s sustainability programme ‘Together Towards Zero’. As part of
this programme, The Carlsberg Group aims to have its breweries 100 per cent renewable and eliminate coal as a source of energy by 2022.
Ted Akiskalos, managing director at Carlsberg Sverige, said: “For many, many years we have been working to create a more efficient brewery with as little impact on our environment as possible. This is clear when looking at how much we have reduced our energy consumption over the years. It is motivating that we now take a big step forward and use solely carbon neutral energy sources.”
Sustainability director of the Carlsberg Group, Simon Boas Hoffmeyer, added: “Climate change is perhaps the most important issue for our society today, both for citizens, governments and companies all over the world, and we are very pleased with the positive development in Carlsberg Sverige. This underlines our willingness to contribute to tackling
climate change at the same time as governments are focusing on scaling and speeding up impact at the COP23 in Bonn these weeks. Carlsberg Group will continue to chase our ambitions and targets, as we strive to brew for a better today and tomorrow.”
