William Grant & Sons Irish Manufacturing

Membership Status:

Sector:

Beverages


Spotlight Target Area: Water
With a target to reduce water usage per litre of absolute alcohol produced (l/laa) by
47% by 2022, William Grant surpassed this target significantly in 2020 achieving a
reduction of over 61% per litre of absolute alcohol (l/laa) produced. Progress during
2020 was aided by the introduction of a dissolved air flotation (DAF) plant, alongside
a programme of fixing leaks in the sprinkler system. A SCADA system on site allows
for close monitoring and control of processes, including water usage. This ensures
that the correct volume of water is used and inadvertent usage does not occur. Due
to design standards and close monitoring, water wastage through leaks is kept to a
minimum.
Overall, the company performed exceptionally well throughout 2020, with an
exemplary performance demonstrated across its sustainability targets in the areas of
supplier certification, energy/emissions, water, waste, and community engagement.
