As soon as you walk into our brewery, you can feel the pride. We are proud of our brands, our company, our craftsmanship and, of course, our beers. That is part of our DNA. Just like sustainability and corporate social responsibility, in everything we do. Because we believe that this will enable us – and the world around us - to move forward.
SCSR has become an integral part of how we work day in, day out, and we put this philosophy into practice through a wide range of products. One of our key principles is taking a circular, inclusive approach to how we think and what we do. Our sustainability strategy focuses on six focus areas, and all our projects in each of these focus areas we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
Watch the Grolsch Sustainability video!
Within our sustainability strategy we have six focus areas:
1. Reducing CO2 & energy consumption
2. Maximising circular packaging
3. Reusing brewery waste
4. Reducing and securing water consumption
5. Stimulating social and economic growth
6. Promoting responsible alcohol consumption
After all, we all have a responsibility to contribute to a better, inclusive, and circular world.
Grolsch wants to encourage 'vakmanschap is meesterschap', craftsmanship is mastery, in Twente and the Achterhoek. Every year certain projects get financial support from this fund. These project excel in character and entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability.
The Grolsche Bierbrouwerij in Enschede is one of the most environmentally friendly beer breweries in the world. During the construction of the brewery in the period 2001 - 2004, various environmental aspects were explicitly taken into account and an optimal integration of the brewery in the immediate vicinity. For example, we belong to the top of the most efficient water users in the world, the brewery is virtually odorless and silent to the environment, and released biogas from the water treatment plant is reused for heating the steam boilers. Grolsch produces 15% of the total energy requirement itself.
