UK: Cider makers launch sustainability website
Cider industry targets carbon neutral status by 2022
UK cider makers are stepping up their focus on long-term sustainability with the launch of a new website promoting best practice.
Cider’s Future highlights cider makers working in a responsible and sustainable way. It forms part of the UK cider industrys plan to be carbon neutral and produce ‘zero waste’ by 2022.
Henry Chevallier-Guild, head of the UK’s National Association of Cider Makers, who revealed details of the site at a reception for MPs and peers in Parliament last night, said the site would become “an increasingly powerful tool” to help “embed sustainability and responsibility” into the industry.
He added: “When we develop a model for business and industry growth we want it to be for the long-term – something able to sustain our investment cycle which is measured in decades.”
