The BarthHaas group has come together to publish our first global sustainability report. It highlights initiatives the sustainability teams at BarthHaas, Haas and HPA have accomplished in the past few years, and what we have planned for the future.
The group’s regional sustainability teams have increased communication and collaboration, sharing ideas, knowledge and resources that will inspire new initiatives and push innovation on a global scale. They plan to continue working together moving forward and see collaboration as a strength in establishing aligned sustainability strategies, while also holding each other accountable for accomplishing the goals they have set.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges faced by hop growers. The BarthHaas group is focusing efforts on reducing our environmental footprint so that future generations can continue to farm successfully. The group has been working side by side with our farms to develop hop varieties that ensure a supply security for our brewing customers. As a signatory to the UN Global Compact we pledge to operate responsibly in the global fight against climate change, inequality and poverty.
For the first time in the group’s history, we have produced a sustainability report for every continent on which we operate. The highlights of these individual reports have been combined in the global sustainability report, which includes a detailed inventory of all emissions.
