Anheuser-Busch has announced that its entire beer and seltzer portfolio is now brewed using 100% renewable electricity from solar and wind power.

The company’s 222MWac Anheuser-Busch Solar Farm in Pecos County, Texas, US, will officially become operational this month, enabling it to achieve its sustainability goal to source 100% of its purchased electricity early.

Originally, the company planned to achieve this objective by 2025.

The Anheuser-Busch Solar Farm was developed in partnership with the Canadian Solar subsidiary Recurrent Energy, a utility-scale storage project developer.

Anheuser-Busch CEO Michel Doukeris said: “At Anheuser-Busch, we dream big in everything we do, including our commitment to creating a more sustainable future for our partners, our consumers and our communities.

“Achieving this ambitious sustainability goal four years early means that each time someone reaches for an Anheuser-Busch product, they are choosing one that contributes to a more sustainable future.”

New Hampshire US Senator Jeanne Shaheen said: “I applaud Anheuser-Busch on shifting production to brew beer with 100% renewable electricity, marking an impressive milestone years ahead of schedule.”

The company’s brands including Bud Light, Michelob ULTRA, Busch and its Brewers Collective family of craft partners are now brewed using clean energy.

Its announcement builds on its ongoing investments in renewable electricity, which also includes 152MW Budweiser Wind Farm at Thunder Ranch in Oklahoma with Enel Green Power.

With these two projects and more than ten renewable electricity installations at flagship and craft partner breweries, Anheuser-Busch has added nearly 400MW of renewable electricity capacity to the grid.

The projects also offset more than 950,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.

Additionally, the company is donating $100,000 to the national non-profit organisation Green Restaurant Association to pay it forward and promote sustainability in the industry.
