Ambitious goals

 

Unlike many other countries in the world, the Netherlands does not face a long-term water shortage. But that is no reason to waste water! Grolsch has decided to further reduce its use of water, with an ambitious target! In 2020 we want to further reduce the volume of water with 35% to 3.0 hl water/hl beer.

At Grolsch we are currently undertaking a variety of initiatives and activities to reduce water consumption.
