How frequently do we select projects?
We select projects every quarter to fund. The first donation was due in May 2022. As this fell during the start-up phase it was not possible to distribute any profits. However, we made a voluntary donation of £5,000 to Sustainable Global Gardens. In the event there are further quarters when no profit is available for distribution we will make a voluntary donation instead.

How do we ensure all profits go to good causes?
We screen all projects in conjunction with our independent scientific advisers to ensure we select the best, most impactful causes. We will select 5-10 projects to fund 4 times per year.
Projects will be selected and donations made in May 2022, Aug 2022, Nov 2022, Feb 2023 etc.
What types of causes do we support?
Innovative projects that aim to drive climate action. For example:
- Social housing developers implementing low carbon heating systems, community owned or small-scale heat networks; and
- Community owned or private small scale renewable energy generation projects.
Organisations which have a clear mission and measurable targets, such as:
- Those focussed on education or supporting the development of low carbon or renewable energy generation and which can demonstrate the CO2 reduction benefits compared with doing nothing and which balance the project benefits against the cost of implementation.
- BrewDog’s goal is to support projects demonstrating real carbon emissions reductions and to help raise awareness of amazing carbon reduction projects taking place.
High leverage projects where a little bit of funding might stand to have a huge impact. For example:
- Helping organisations fund initial feasibility studies to help kick off energy reduction projects; and
- Supporting projects which have had initial feasibility and require seed funding to start their project such as solar PV, heat pumps, biofuels, hydrogen electrolyser etc.
We also intend to promote these projects and share success stories with industry players and customers to quantify the costs and benefits of climate action projects.
What types of causes do we not support?
Organisations who are not a registered charity or not for profit.
Climate action conferences, events or sponsorships
Land acquisition, building projects or research projects
