Here are a few of the key arenas in which we engage with our fellow brewers and beverage manufacturers to drive the sustainability of the whole industry. We are all more effective when we can speak with one voice on key issues and through benchmarking and best practice sharing.
The mission of the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER) is to bring together leading global beverage companies to define a common framework for stewardship, drive continuous improvement in industry practices and performance, and inform public policy in the areas of Water Conservation and Resource Protection, Energy Efficiency and Climate Change Mitigation.
The Brewers Association Technical Committee is a collaborative group of Craft Brewers who work together to better understand technical, safety, and sustainability issues within the industry as well as find solutions to challenges presented in those areas. We cover important topics including coworker safety, Bisphenol A (BPA), Genetically Engineered seeds, and more. New Belgium is one of many contributors and views expressed on this website do not inherently represent the views of the BA Technical Committee.
