Brains keen to go green.

THE journey to sustainable business started many years ago for SA Brain & Co. The company has had to adapt to ever changing environments for the last 128 years and continues to adapt now, when faced with the challenge of sustainability.

Having had a Eureka moment more than three years ago, the board now actively seek sustainable solutions not only in the production of the beer, but in their pubs too.

The 2020 project has seen changes in behaviour right across the business, from low energy light bulbs now used across the pub estate to the most recent introduction of a water treatment plant at the Cardiff Brewery. This recycles and treats water to be used in the cleaning processes in the brewery.

Being an active member of the Mayday initiative and recently taking part in the Seeing is Believing sustainable business event all helps maintain the focus on driving for a greener business. Philip Lay is retail director of SA Brain & Co
