Energy Efficiency & Climate Change

Understanding carbon impacts and informing policy

As climate change legislation advances throughout the world, beverage companies are proactively driving strategies to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their enterprises as well as the life-cycles of their products. Through the allied voice of BIER, members collaborate to monitor and inform the development of climate change policy initiatives and work to ensure policy compliance through common guidance for calculating, tracking and reporting carbon impacts within the beverage sector.

In the beverage sector, being more productive while using less energy has never been a greater priority given the increasing expectations from retailers, distributors, and consumers for more sustainable manufacturing. From conversion of raw ingredients to bottling to final packaging and transportation to market, BIER recognizes that there are considerable opportunities to improve energy efficiency across beverage sector operations and works to achieve acceptable standards through benchmarking and best practice sharing around energy accounting, key performance indicators, and transparency.
