Jim Beam bourbon producer invests $400 million in renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gases

Bourbon brand producer Jim Beam announced Wednesday that it is taking a $400 million step towards more sustainable production.

Beam Suntory’s investment aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at its Kentucky facility by 50% while increasing the amount of bourbon it can produce by 50%.

“We are committed to making a difference by investing in cleaner technology and systems,” said Albert Baladi, President and CEO of Beam Suntory, in a press release.

Jim Beam is made from the fermentation and distillation of corn, rye and malted barley. The project will help preserve local agriculture while considering a new way of producing renewable energy.

Beam Suntory is working with 3 Rivers Energy Partners, a company specializing in the development and construction of renewable natural gas. A new plant will convert biogas into renewable natural gas. It should be finished by 2024.

“I am so proud to honor our legacy as the First Family of Bourbon by using this renewable energy to support our brand’s journey for the next 225 years,” said Carlo Coppola, general manager of James B. Beam Distilling Co .into the release.
