We want all beer to be made using sustainable electricity. So it is a pleasure for us to announce the energy deal with innogy which means that Kompania Piwowarska’s is switching to wind power.

Poland’s leader of the beer industry and Europe’s major renewable wind energy supplier innogy got together to brew sustainably. From 2021, all three breweries of Kompania Piwowarska will run on 100% renewable electricity, specifically Tyskie Browary Książęce in Tychy, the Dojlidy Brewery in Białystok and Lech Browary Wielkopolski in Poznań.

Żubr and Lech with fewer emissions

The reduction of CO2 emissions remains one of our main priorities and we committed ourselves to have all of our breweries carbon neutral by the year 2030. Establishing a long-term connection with innogy for the next 10 years in Poland is a big step towards it. innogy will expand its onshore wind farm Nowy Staw for our needs in the country and it will also help us with our sustainability goals. “We will be able to reduce our CO2 emissions by 66% compared to 2019,” says proudly Igor Tikhonov, president of Kompania Piwowarska.

Next time you drink Żubr, Tyskie, Lech, Redd’s and the Książęce, you can enjoy it even more, since these beers do not harm the planet!
