For some time, Castle Rock has been working with Investors of the Environment to become environmentally sustainable, and in July 2016 received green accreditation. We gained our accreditation through actions like monitoring energy and water use to reduce waste, and recycling our spent grains to feed local livestock.
Currently, we’re working on plans to fit solar panels and additional systems into our head offices and the brewery itself, including the installation of new burners to reclaim heat during the brewing process. Most excitingly, in December we began a year-long evaluation of an anaerobic digester, designed to convert waste from brewing processes into energy and cleaner waste water. Read more about the anaerobic digester here.
With all these brilliant developments taking place at the brewery and in Castle Rock pubs, it seems only right we continue to look outward and reach out to other like-minded businesses. UKSSD is multi-stakeholder, representing organisations from the UK that span the business, civil society, academic and public spheres, irrespective of their interests, size or location. Castle Rock is thrilled to be sponsoring this exciting conference, with an event programme that looks at how organisations can translate the ambitions of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (and their 169 targets) into transformational action for the UK. Speakers include Amanda McKenzie OBE, Professor Kate Pickett, Lord Bates and Mike Barry. Attendees can enjoy a refreshing pint of our Traffic Street Special Rat Race, and/or Alternate Universe – a collaborative brew with the University of Nottingham.
The UKSSD network supports organisations who are working to advance sustainable development, and helps to facilitate the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals, which you can learn more about by clicking here.
