Brands Shaking Up Alcohol's Carbon Footprint

Date TBA

According to Gallup, Americans consume about 4 alcoholic drinks per week. The distillation of alcohol is particularly water-intensive (it's estimated that it takes 12 times the final volume of alcohol to produce it) in addition to the carbon footprint of ingredients, packaging, and distribution.
Join leaders from three alcoholic beverage brands—BeatBox Beverages, Fierce Whiskers, and WhistlePig—as they share their different approaches to integrating sustainability in their manufacturing and operations. From setting ambitious sustainability targets, to integrating sustainability into facility design, to packaging choices, to launching carbon-negative products, and more, this panel will inspire consumers and entrepreneurs alike with practical ways to take steps towards a net-zero future.
