The Young Scientists Community’s innovative projects are setting new industry standards for science-based, partnership-driven sustainability research. In 2019 they explored solutions for cutting water waste from cleaning and up-cycling wastewater, as well as ways to balance and reduce energy requirements throughout our breweries.
The Carlsberg Young Scientists Community will be led by the historic laboratory – home to ground-breaking innovations such as the pH scale, purified yeast and climate-tolerant barley. The Community has access to the global Carlsberg Group value chain and expertise, as well as opportunities for testing the scaling of new solutions.
Commenting on the initiative, Cees 't Hart, Carlsberg Group CEO, said:
“We are looking at all options to reduce the environmental impact of brewing, and the young scientists will play a key role in this work. The Young Scientists Community will identify innovative solutions for achieving our 2030 targets within water and carbon for the benefit of the Carlsberg Group and the world.”
