From 1 January 2020, breweries in Rome, Bari and Padua have been using 100% renewable electricity: wind, photovoltaic and biomass energy; further confirmation of the commitment and the path of sustainability followed by the company aimed at reducing the environmental impact of its factories.
Birra Peroni reduces CO2 emissions by 30% from 4.51 kg Co2 / hl to 3.18 Kg CO2 / hl and is expecting to achieve a 50% reduction by 2025.
This means we are adding another 6 million hectolitres on top of what we already brew in Europe using 100% green electricity. This year, we will brew almost 15 million hectolitres, which can fill 2.9 billion beer bottles, using 100% green electricity.
In the last 10 years, Birra Peroni has already reduced its water consumption per hl of beer produced by 34%, its consumption of thermal energy has decreased by 39% and its consumption of electricity by 25%, although there has been an increase in its production of beer, which today exceeds 6 million hectolitres per year.
