Adnams Sustainability Story

Adnams is committed to a sustainable future. We believe that the only impact we should have, is on your tastebuds.

We leave our footprints in the sand, not on the planet.

Sustainability is fundamental to the longevity and success of our business. Our company values are rooted in making great products without costing the earth. From selecting the suppliers that we work with, through to the ingredients we use in our beers and spirits and the services we offer in our stores, pubs and hotels, we look at all the elements, to make sure we’re doing the right thing. We will continue to make our success sustainable and make a positive difference, because we believe business should be a force for good. 



Our local community is very important to us and we donate 1% of our profits every year to fund worthy causes via The Adnams Community Trust. To date, the Trust has awarded over 1,500 grants to organisations within 25 miles of Southwold. It has supported projects in health and social welfare, education, recreation, conservation, and community facilities. You can find out more about the Adnams Community Trust and the great work it is supporting here

Every November, we organise the Adnams 10k Run which raises additional funds for the Trust and raises money for charities across the region. You can find out more about the run here. 

In partnership with the Marine Conservation Society, we operate three beach cleans every year, with the support of local residents and staff volunteers. We collect data about the volume and type of litter found on 'our stretch,' which runs from Gun Hill to Southwold Harbour. Learn how to take part in our beach cleans here. 


Our commitment to sustainability sees us put our principles into practice, looking beyond ourselves. We want to do the right thing, the right way, across all we do; even when no one is looking. This is especially true in our commitment to sustainability, equality, diversity, and social justice.

We’re lucky that we have a beautiful beach on our doorstep, so getting out for a walk at lunchtimes is rarely a chore. We’ve developed a range of low alcohol beers and wines which can be enjoyed as part of a healthy lifestyle - remember, you can have too much of a good thing! 

Adnams is a founding member of ‘Open to Everyone, Closed to Racism.’ We share our hometown with its founder, Jessica Gregson, so we were proud to get involved with this scheme. It aims to assist businesses in visibly promoting inclusivity front-of-house, while supporting them with expertise and education behind the scenes. Find our more about our involvement here.
