Budweiser adds green logo as brewer taps into US wind power

Budweiser said it has switched all its U.S. brewing to renewable electricity and is adding a clean energy logo to its labels as part of a global shift to green power by its parent Anheuser-Busch InBev.

A “100 percent renewable electricity” symbol will be added to U.S. bottles and cans in the spring, St. Louis-based Budweiser said, adding it expects to lift sales of one of America’s top beers, after a dip.

A-B InBev, the world’s biggest brewer, is one of more than 100 multinational firms to have committed to use renewable power to combat pollution and climate change under the Paris accord. A-B InBev’s U.S. headquarters is in St. Louis.

“Beer has been around for 3,000 years — we would like that to continue for another 3,000 years,” Brian Perkins, global vice president of Budweiser, told Reuters by telephone.

Since the start of this year Budweiser has bought power equivalent to its U.S brewing demands from Enel Green Power’s 300 megawatt capacity Thunder Ranch Wind Farm in Oklahoma.
