BIER’s Agenda Strives To Build Collaborated Sustainable Future For The Beverage Industry


The “environmental leaders” BIER from the beverage industry are united under BIER collaboration.

Dailycsr.com – 28 May 2018 – One of Helen Keller’s famous statement said:
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
Therefore, the “Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable”, shortly known as “BIER”, shows a constant commitment of unity since the inception days and stays true to its “founding concept". Keeping aside competitions, the beverage brands across the globe come together with BIER under one industry body to fulfil the commitments towards “environmental sustainability and value”.
According to the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable:
“Together, we’ve tackled water stewardship by developing a living framework to guide beverage companies’ strategies, benchmarking studies, and toolkits. We’ve developed guidance for GHG emissions reporting, mapped the carbon footprints of common beverage types, and achieved major improvements in energy intensity. We’ve made a collective commitment to fight climate change and taken action”.
However, this is only the beginning of what BIER’s sustainable journey.
Around eighteen beverage companies have come together under BIER, and along with over “60 environmental leaders”, “consultancies, and associations”, the focus is turned towards shaping the future of beverage industry in a sustainable manner. BIER engages various groups to work in innovative projects for enhancing the access to the “local water data” by basin collaboration and by developing “a future-focused roadmap for better carbon management”.
The blog posts of BIER features detailed information about the “environmental leaders” who are part of this “collaborative action”.
