Heineken to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% by 2020

As part of its drive to reduce CO2 emissions, Heineken has installed solar panels at its brewery in North Yorkshire.

Over 4,000 solar panels have been installed on the roof of the company’s Tadcaster Brewery in North Yorkshire. 

The panels are expected to generate approximately 876 megawatt hours each year, which is enough to power 185 homes.

The company is committed to reducing its CO2 emissions right across the chain of their activities. 

Their goal is to lower emissions in production by 40% by 2020. 

Heineken aims to achieve this target by reducing losses, optimising equipment and making renewable energy sources part of the energy mix. 

Its “Brewing a Better World” strategy focuses on four key areas:

  • Protecting water resources
  • Reducing CO2 emissions
  • Sourcing sustainably
  • Advocating responsible consumption

The company has also committed to source 60% of agricultural raw materials used in Africa locally within the continent by 2020.
