Standards and labels: help speed up the energy transition!
Standards and ecolabels can play a role in a transition towards a 100% renewable society. One of the reason why ecolabels exist, is to help consumers to do more and to push complete sectors in a more sustainable solution. Unfortunately, only a handful of standards explicitly recommend renewable energy. And those doing it, often mention the use of renewable energy as an optional, not obligatory, requirement.

The Saimaa ringed seal is a sad example of a species falling victim to climate change.
100% renewable is the solution
5 years ago, only a handful of people believed a 100% renewable economy was feasible. But now global leaders from government, business and the UN all call for a transition to 100% renewable energy worldwide to achieve the climate goals of the Paris Agreement.

Burning fossil fuels for energy production is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. As brewing is a water and energy intensive process, finding ways to reduce consumption and creating a more sustainable process is one of the company’s key objectives. What is more, it also makes sense from a business perspective.
