Taking responsibility for future generations, since 1794
For over 225 years BarthHaas has been making decisions to secure a long-term future for the company.
As a family-run operation, we always keep the interests of future generations in mind and as hop experts, we are particularly conscious of the challenges around climate change. Our sustainability report gives you an insight into the steps we have taken.
Our sustainability strategy covers several areas, considering solutions for all of our stakeholders.
Plan & Monitor
Our Sustainability Strategy and Management
As a family-run group we embrace our responsibility to grow hops and sustainably run our business so we can continue to provide top-quality products and services for our customers. We prioritize the environment by incorporating sustainability values into every aspect of our business. To create meaningful change, everything we do will come under scrutiny to ensure it fits with the cleaner, greener future we are working towards.
We are committed to being a leader in the development of hops by producing sustainable products and implementing processes throughout our supply chain.
Reducing Our Environmental Impact
Our business is constantly looking for ways to cut absolute greenhouse gas emissions and improve our environmental footprint in areas like transportation, production processes, and electricity use.
Improving Resource Efficiency
BarthHaas is reducing its consumption of raw materials, energy and water. For example, the new heat recovery system at our hop production plant operated by Hopfenveredlung St. Johann has allowed us to significantly reduce our use of heating oil.
We care about every person alongside our value chain. And beyond.
Products And Services
To add long-term value, we see it as our role to research everything there is to know about hops, and to make the knowledge we discover available to our partners.
Clean And Safe
The specially developed BarthHaas Safety Concept features an early-warning system to guarantee transparency for our growers and customers with the purest possible hops.
BarthHaas works with its staff, customers and suppliers to support good causes and charitable organizations. Our Funding Guidelines allow us to ensure our contribution has specific objectives, making the best possible use of everyone’s efforts and reflecting our business values.
