Our approach to sustainability
We are working hard to become a more sustainable business. Our overall goal is to reduce the drawdown on the social and ecological systems that support us. We’re focused on reducing fuel use, electricity use, and general waste. Our carbon reduction targets are empirical and in line with the Paris Agreement.
BrewHub commits to reduce scope 1 and scope 2 GHG emissions by 42% (80tCO2e) by 2030 from a 2022 base year (190tCO2e), and to measure and reduce our scope 3 emissions. The targets covering greenhouse gas emissions from company operations (scopes 1 and 2) are consistent with reductions required to limit warming to 1.5°C.
Our approach to making BrewHub sustainable is to foster innovation and promote a culture of market leadership. Our primary aim is reducing our carbon emissions, on a path to a carbon neutral future. We draw on established frameworks and reporting tools, but our focus is not on ‘compliance’. We will look at the gaps in our business, listen to our stakeholders, collaborate, and change. We may offset the emissions that we cannot eliminate with authentic and targeted offset arrangements.
We will reduce first and offset later. When we are communicating with our stakeholders, we will say it ‘as it is’. We are not perfect. There are elements of our business that need work. So, we won’t sell you a carbon neutral story that sounds like we have got it all under control. However, we are committed to continue making genuine changes to our business.
We see our business as a part of the community and by extension a part of the natural environment. We have an obligation to prove to our stakeholders what we are doing. We are working on data capture to give you greater transparency on the impact of engaging BrewHub. We are already making material progress. We look forward to this challenge. It is a big change, but the process should be enjoyed too. The potential is there to engage people beyond profits and create new business models that create competitive advantage and opportunities for everyone.
