Blog: Olly WehringSustainability; the name of the game, and we want to play the game with you

Olly Wehring | 22 November 2011

 

As part of our monthly management briefing series next year, just-drinks will be publishing four reports in 2012 looking at the drive for greater environmental sustainability in the industry sectors we cover – beer, soft drinks & water, spirits and wine.

Each report will comprise four sections and will cover a range of key sustainability issues, such as greenhouse gas emissions, water efficiency, waste, recycling and packaging, and sustainability in raw material supply chains.

The first briefing in the series will look at the beer sector, and will be published in February 2012.  We will then look at soft drinks and water in June, the spirits sector in September and the wine industry in November.

Our features editor, Ben Cooper, who specialises in sustainability and corporate responsibility issues, will be writing the reports. Each one will examine efforts both on an industry-wide and company level to foster greater sustainability in each of the sectors.

Here's where you come in. We need as much information as possible from drinks companies about their activities in the environmental sustainability field. To contact Ben with such info, and to arrange interviews, please email ben.cooper@just-drinks.com.

For advertising enquiries relating to the briefings, please contact Ian Preece in our advertising department at ian.preece@aroq.com.
