Sustainability is at the core of our business. Did you know that Whitewater Brewing Co. is effectively powered by whitewater? Our Lakeside Brewery and Brew Pub use renewable energy to brew beer, make meals, and even, turn on the lights through our partnership with Bullfrog Power. Our electricity is 100% offset by low-impact hydro energy, and our natural gas consumption is offset by green natural gas that is sourced from a unique methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s landfill sites. Through innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and injected into the national natural gas pipeline.
We are thrilled to announce that we are Canada’s First Climate Neutral Brewery! After years of committing to sustainable business practices and many months of working with Climate Neutral, we’ve measured and offset our entire carbon footprint. Furthermore, we have built a plan to continue to reduce our emissions moving forward. We are officially Climate Neutral Certified.
Climate Neutral is a nonprofit organization working to decrease global carbon emissions. We’re passionate about exploring, playing in, and enjoying the splendours of the great outdoors – and we’re dedicated to protecting our climate for generations to come.
In addition to using renewable energy, we have eliminated plastic straws from both of our brew pub locations, we use compostable take-out containers and recyclable beer cases, we’ve implemented sustainable wastewater practices, and as always, use ingredients as local to us as possible.
Who knew drinking beer could be a force for good?
Ethical Sourcing & Social Sustainability
We are committed to supporting our employees and the community at large. Fair wages, a casual work environment, and team-first attitude are some of the benefits of working for Whitewater Brewing Co.
Our community is full of fresh produce, ethically raised meat, and all the ingredients we use in our beer. To help our local community thrive, and limit our impact on the environment, we shop as close to home as possible when possible.
Our goals as an organisation, are to craft high-quality beer and effect positive change in our community, for our environment and employees.
