The greener
Haberstumpf

With its recently developed beer bottle, the Haberstumpf brewery in Upper Franconia is focusing on a significantly minimised CO2 footprint. Through the very high level of used glass and the use of green electricity and biomethane in the production process, we are able to effectively reduce emissions by more than 65 % compared to the originally developed bottle.1

And what we are currently not yet able to avoid or reduce, we compensate for by investing in preferred regional climate protection projects.

Strong measures for
a greener Haberstumpf

  • High content of recycled glass of at least 85 %

    The Haberstumpf Eco2Bottle is produced from more than 85 % amber cullet. According to BV Glas, the average amount of cullet used in Germany is around 60 %. This means that we save up to 7.5 % energy and 8.8 % CO2 compared to an average bottle just by using a very high percentage of cullet.

  • 100 % green electricity

    We rely on electricity from renewable energy sources in our production. By purchasing certified green electricity from high-quality sources, we guarantee that the electricity supplier has produced this amount of green energy.

  • 100 % biomethane

    By using biomethane, we avoid the emissions caused by burning natural gas in the production process. With biomethane from German municipal waste, we are using a natural energy source that is produced from biogenic gases.

  • Climate-neutral compensation

    Through our investments in preferably regional climate and nature protection projects, we compensate for the emissions that could not be avoided through other measures. In this way, we guarantee that the resulting CO2 value is completely compensated.

Eco2Bottle makes traditional
brewing

even more sustainable

With a significantly reduced CO2 footprint, the beer bottle is the perfect choice for sustainable beer consumption. Regional craftsmanship and traditional glass production are thus perfectly combined through a common pursuit of greater sustainability.
