We are proud of the great results we manage to achieve every year in terms of reducing our energy consumption. In 2018, we took another step in the right direction, leading to a lower energy consumption than ever before! We have put a lot of effort into our energy transition plan, which describes how we will be replacing fossil fuels with sustainable, carbon-neutral energy sources. Our ambition is to be an entirely CO2-neutral brewery by 2025, in which all energy we use is generated in a sustainable manager.
In 2018, our energy consumption per hectolitre was 88.31 MJ/hl. Having achieved our best energy consumption per hl of beer ever in 2017 (88.38 MJ/hl), we topped this performance in 2018, breaking yet another record. A great achievement! Since 2005, we have managed to decrease our overall energy consumption by now less than 32%! The green biogas we produce ourselves accounts for 12% of our entire energy requirement and 17% of our thermal energy requirement.
In 2019, we want to continue reducing our CO2 emissions per hectolitre of beer to 5.5 kg of CO2 eq/hl with the help of the following projects:
