Heineken to invest in green initiatives

10th November 2011, Comments 1 comment

Dutch beer giant Heineken is making efforts to become a greener brand. According to the financial daily Financieel Dagblad, the brewery is considering involvement in the construction of a wind farm in the central Dutch province of Flevoland. 

Heineken also has plans to re-design its Zoeterwoude brewery to run partly on energy generated from their own windmills. 

“Such investments fit into our plans for using renewable energy as an alternative to our current power consumption,” a Heineken spokesperson told the newspaper.

Negotiations between Heineken and wind farm project leaders are still in the exploratory phase.
