In 2020 BrewDog set out on a journey to make great beer which doesn’t cost the planet. We set out a roadmap for zero operational emissions by 2023, and we are well on our way. Take a look at our MEGA Report (Make Earth Great Again) to see how far we have come.
CERTIFIED CARBON NEGATIVE
It was already official. Now it’s officially official. BrewDog is a Positive Planet Certified Carbon Negative company. By measuring our carbon footprint, investing in high quality carbon removals and making stone cold commitments to further reductions in future, we’re verifiably reducing our impact on the planet!
In 2020, we purchased a 9,308 acre plot of land in the Scottish Highlands. Why? Simple. To create a native, bio-diverse broadleaf woodland, pull carbon from our atmosphere… and help save our planet. In 2022, we begin planting our own trees on this land, embarking on one of the largest reforestation and peatland restoration projects the UK has ever seen.
Planet First Locals
BrewDog's Planet First Locals exists to support our favourite bars and cuts to cut their carbon by understanding their business emissions and setting and achieving ambitious carbon reduction targets. Together with Small World Consulting, we’re on a mission to reduce the scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions of every venue that joins this unique collective.
Our Positive Planet accreditation certificate shows slightly different emissions totals versus our MEGA report 4.0. This is because a handful of calculations were adjusted after the report was released, and will be integrated and updated in the next annual report.
