HEINEKEN Drop The C Programme For Renewable Energy: Heerlijk, Die Groene Energie

Geschreven op 12-2-2018 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

HEINEKEN announced its Drop the C programme for renewable energy.

With Drop the C the company aims to grow its share of renewable thermal energy and electricity in production from the current level of 14% to 70% by 2030.

HEINEKEN wants to drive a real change towards renewable energy and will therefore not purchase unbundled certificates to meet its reduction targets. In addition, new emission goals will be set for distribution and cooling and, for the first time, also for packaging. The brewer commits to set science based targets for these areas in the next two years.

Since 2008 carbon emissions at HEINEKEN breweries have decreased by 41% and in 2017 the company has already reached its 2020 emission targets in production.

HEINEKEN commits to increase its share of renewable energy in production from 14% today (renewable thermal energy and electricity combined) to 70% by 2030. This implies an 80% reduction target in carbon emissions compared to the 2008 base year. During 2017 numerous projects have already been identified worldwide that will contribute to achieving the 2030 ambition. The targets will be externally verified by the Science Based Targets initiative.

The company realises that its diverse and extensive geographical footprint poses a challenge as it includes many countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America where renewable energy solutions are not readily available.

The company has already made inroads to renewable electricity by using solar and wind energy. Its brewery in Massafra, Italy is one of the largest solar breweries in the world with a capacity of 3.3 MW, while its Göss brewery in Austria is carbon neutral. In Singapore, HEINEKEN is brewing with solar energy and in the Netherlands the company is using wind energy and solar power. Currently 29% of HEINEKEN’s global electricity usage is renewable.

Today 7% of the thermal energy used by HEINEKEN is powered by biomass and biogas. Making progress in renewable thermal energy is much harder to achieve than on the electricity side. Renewable thermal energy is often self-produced and needs to be reliable to keep the breweries running. In addition, today there are very few commercial solutions available here. However, the company has also experienced the positive impact that renewable thermal solutions can have on the communities in which it operates. Unproductive waste from communities can be turned into energy and provide income for the local people. In Vietnam, for instance, the company sources rice husks from local farmers to heat its brewing boilers. In Brazil a new biomass boiler was fired up in 2017 at the company’s brewery in Ponta Grossa, solely using woodchips from certified reforestation companies.

HEINEKEN will continue to embark on reforestation projects which help to offset carbon emissions and also support water preservation. Currently the company has reforestation projects in MexicoSpain and Indonesia.
