Corporate social responsibility

At Harboes Bryggeri A/S we take corporate social responsibility seriously. It’s important for us that all parts of our company are run properly and sustainably, and with respect for our surroundings. We have formulated policies for our focus areas, and every year we report on what we have done and the results we have achieved.

You can read more about our policies, efforts and results in our statement on corporate social responsibility in our latest annual report.

Environment and climate

Our environment and climate is one of our biggest social challenges today. For us, it is only natural that we help improve our utilisation of global resources, and we work purposefully to reduce the environmental footprint that we leave in our surroundings.

We have put together an overall target to reduce the total use of resources in our production in relation to how much we produce. We are working with this in a number of areas:

  • Reduction of our energy consumption
  • Reduction of our water consumption and waste water emissions
  • Reduction of raw material waste
  • Recycling and reduction of resource consumption
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions

Our efforts have, in recent years, resulted in multiple initiatives and positive results, and we will continue to explore new routes and to invest in new solutions that contribute towards sustainable production.

Consumer relations and responsible consumption

Our products are ingested daily by consumers all over the world. It is our responsibility to ensure that people are convinced of the quality and safety of our products.

That’s why we have set up processes and control systems that ensure a high and consistent quality throughout the entire value chain in our production, from raw materials to finished products. And our processes and quality assurance are certified in accordance with several international standards.

We also support a wide number of industry activities, as well as the health authorities’ guidelines, which focus on the responsible consumption of alcohol.

Reporting on corporate social responsibility

Our work with corporate social responsibility is all encompassing and also covers policies and guidelines for good business practice, as described in our “Code of Conduct”. Here we also describe how we protect ourselves from corruption and prepare our employees to make the right decisions in their working day.

We have policies covering how we work with human rights and employee conditions, and we have formulated general policies for our long-standing efforts to support local social development in the areas where we run our business activities.

All of this is further described in the section on corporate social responsibility in our latest annual report, where you can also read more about our results and ambitions for the future.

”It's always been a pleasure going to work. This is mostly due to the fact that we have great respect for each other and each other's work, no matter where we are in the organisation. We have a flat structure here.”
