Footprints in the sand, not on the planet

We aim to minimise our impact on the environment wherever we can. With almost 150 years of heritage behind us, we want to help create a sustainable future for the generations of people in front of us. By pouring the pioneering spirit of the sea into all we do, we’re committed to finding new ways to support the planet and community we’re part of. Here’s a taster of how.

Using renewable
electricity

We first started buying UK-based, zero-carbon energy back in 2012. Five years later, we made the switch to a 100% certified renewable electricity supply. This powers our entire business, from our brewery to our offices. We’re still searching for other innovative energy solutions that protect our natural resources.

Saving
Water

Our home on the coast makes us acutely aware of the changes to the world’s climate and even more passionate about conserving water. Our green-roofed, sustainable distribution centre helps us to reuse rainwater, saving over 1 million litres each year. We also reduce water use in our brewery and distillery through our closed-loop recovery system. It retains water, converts steam and transfers heat across our vessels.

Supporting our
community

We believe that business can be a force for good. That’s why we founded The Adnams Community Trust, which has awarded over 1,500 grants to local causes. It’s supported projects in health and social welfare, education, recreation, conservation and community facilities close to our coastal home.

Reducing
Waste

Waste needn’t be wasted. We see it as a potential resource, feeding herds of cows with our spent grain and treating local pigs to our excess yeast. Anything we can’t reuse is sent for anaerobic digestion, making us zero-to-landfill. We’re also shrinking our plastic use, removing 18 tonnes of it from our beer cases each year.
