Tennent’s signs an environmental deal.
The agreement will see Tennent’s work with SEPA to reduce the brewer’s environmental footprint across its facilities as well as through its distribution network, broader supply chain, and material use.
This follows on from the brewer successfully removing all single-use plastic from its packaging.
The brewer, which switched its canned formats into cardboard outers following a £7 million investment, estimates it has reduced plastic use by around 150 tonnes per year.
Tennent’s also plans to engage with consumers on climate change. Activities will include a series of environmentally-focused workshops run in partnership with SEPA and the 2050 Climate Group.
Shona Munro, director of manufacturing at Tennent’s, said: “Formalising our collaborative way of working with SEPA through a Sustainable Growth Agreement will further focus attention on our responsibilities, and the role we can play in supporting our communities towards a more sustainable future.”
