Suffolk brewery implements low carbon measures
A south of England brewery is one of the first companies to participate in the UK government's Low Carbon, High Potential scheme.
Adnams of Southwold, which is based in Suffolk, is one of three small and medium-sized enterprises to take part in the initiative, which comes ahead of next month's UN climate change conference in Denmark, greenwise reports.
The brewery has built an energy-efficient brew house, implemented an eco-distribution centre and has produced a lighter bottle, meaning that less fuel is required to transport them.
Environmentally-conscious ale drinkers will also be pleased to learn of the launch of East Greenm Adnams' own carbon neutral tipple.
Andy Wood, Adnams' managing director, told the news provider that the company has "transformed" itself into a low carbon organisation.
"[This] brings huge benefits to our organisation, both in money savings, brand reputation and employee engagement. I was delighted to be in a film that encourages other businesses to do the same," he commented.
In addition to its low carbon work, Adnams has lent its backing to a £100 million campaign by Drinkaware, which aims to encourage young adults to drink responsibly.http://tinyurl.com/yheegbj
