Bacardi’s UK operation wins green award

Bermuda-based Bacardi Ltd has announced that its UK operations have been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for monitoring and reducing its carbon footprint by almost 13 percent over three years.

The collective amount of savings totals more than 4,400 tonnes of CO2, equivalent to the emissions from taking 1,128 UK cars off the road per year.

The global operations of Bacardi reduced carbon emissions by almost 18 percent during the same time period.

The UK operations of Bacardi, which include Bacardi Martini Ltd (trading as Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands) and all operations of John Dewar & Sons Ltd, remain committed to minimising the emissions of gases that are believed to contribute to the “greenhouse” layer around the earth.

The Carbon Trust Standard is a mark of excellence that recognises companies for actionable carbon reduction. Based on a rigorous, independent assessment, it certifies that organisations have measured, managed and reduced their carbon emissions across their own operations and are committed to reduce them year-over-year. Companies have to reapply every two years to stay Carbon Trust Standard certified.

“Achieving the Carbon Trust Standard in the UK further demonstrates how seriously we take our environmental responsibilities, and underlines the effectiveness of our rigorous efforts to reduce carbon emissions on both a regional and global scale. This shows we are at the forefront when it comes to carbon management best practices,” said Jon Grey, senior vice-president of global operations with Bacardi.
