With concerns rising regarding the state of the Earth’s climate, more global brands than ever are taking measures into their own hands to reduce their carbon footprint. This is amid pressure rising from international governments to meet specific ecological requirements.
This was the case with Budweiser, as they announce that they have plans to become 100% renewable by 2020. The global lager brand also stated that they have signed the largest unsubsidised solar deal in the UK.
They recently Tweeted:
Budweiser in the US is now brewed with 100% wind power. We’ve recently signed the largest unsubsidised solar deal in the UK and will also be 100% renewable by 2020.
The venture is part of a 15-year power purchase agreement which will roll out 100 megawatts of solar power. The electricity generated at the breweries of Budweiser’s maker, Anheuser-Busch InBev will be able to power the equivalent of 18,000 homes.
It is thought that these advancements will help Budweiser become 100% renewable in the U.K. and the U.S. by next year. Already in the United States, the beer is brewed using 100% wind power.
As leaders in the installation of solar equipment and EnPhase solar technology, it’s fantastic to see conglomerates such as Budweiser finally taking the initiative to embrace climate change and take responsibility.
We look forward to more brands doing the same over the coming months and years.
