Molson Coors Beverage Company has become the first major brewer in the UK to produce its beers using 100% renewable energy.

The company, which produces beer brands such as Carling, Coors and Doom Bar, has signed a power purchase agreement with renewable energy company RWE to supply clean energy from the Tween Bridge wind farm in South Yorkshire to power its operation in the UK.

According to the ten-year PPA, the Tween Bridge wind facility will power the company’s brewing operations in Burton, Tadcaster, Sharps in Cornwall and the Aspall Cyder House in Suffolk.

Clean energy will also be supplied to the company’s corporate offices, national distribution centre and national call centre in Cardiff.

Under the agreement, RWE will supply 75GW/h of renewable energy each year.

Molson Coors Western Europe operations director Fraser Thomson said: “One of our values at Molson Coors is taking accountability, and that includes being responsible for the impact our business has on the environment. That’s why we’ve made such bold commitments to play our part in tackling climate change because it is the right thing to do.

“We know that this matters to our people, our customers and consumers, and they can now be assured that everything we do and every pint we make is powered by 100% green electricity.”

The partnership with RWE is part of Molson Coors’ global sustainability efforts of reducing its carbon emissions across its direct operations by 50% until 2025.

Additionally, the agreement with RWE will help Molson Coors UK operations to achieve their target four years early.
