SINEBRYCHOFF – TOWARDS AND BEYOND REGENERATIVE CHRISTMAS BEER
Baltic Sea Commitment, Corporate Donation, Carbon Action
Sinebrychoff, Finland’s leading brewing company, felt that personnel training and the regenerative cultivation of malting barley were worthy of a Baltic Sea Commitment.
First carbon-farmed beer on the market
Since 2015, Sinebrychoff has been working with BSAG to harness its own expertise in efforts to improve the condition of the Baltic Sea.
The goal of producing a carbon-farmed Christmas beer was achieved in 2021, when Sinebrychoff’s Baltic Sea Commitment brought Finland’s first carbon-farmed beer to the market: 2021 KOFF Christmas Beer. The malting barley for this Christmas beer was cultivated using the principles of regenerative farming, which represents a new stage in Sinebrychoff’s long-term plans to promote sustainability in the primary production of malting barley.
In the longer term, Sinebrychoff’s goal is to promote the regenerative production of malting barley throughout the supply chain.
Vital commitment from personnel and the parent company
All personnel must be made aware of new objectives and operating methods. Which is why Sinebrychoff’s Baltic Sea Commitment focuses on informing and training brewery personnel about regenerative farming and, in particular, the activities of the Carbon Action platform.
Sinebrychoff is also committed to telling its parent company (Carlsberg) and other key players about carbon farming and the Carbon Action project.
Kerava brewery reduces both carbon dioxide emissions and water and plastic consumption
Sinebrychoff is committed to reducing both carbon dioxide emissions and water and plastic consumption at its own brewery in Kerava.
The carbon dioxide generated during beer production is recovered, and an effective purification process enables it to be reused in the carbonation of soft drinks.
Water consumption: 70,000 cubic metres less than in 2019.
The brewery’s carbon footprint is a round zero, and the first carbon-farmed KOFF Christmas beer goes on the market.
First Baltic Sea-friendly KOFF Christmas Beer reaches the market.
Our company became a carbon-neutral brewery in 2021. We’ll continue to improve energy efficiency in our own brewery operations in Kerava, and will also work with our ingredient suppliers to influence different sections of the value chain. In addition to sustainable farming, it’s important to reduce the environmental impact of packaging and transport, and to improve water efficiency.Marja-Liisa Weckström, Corporate Affairs Director, Sinebrychoff
