HENNESSY AIMS TO CUT CARBON EMISSIONS IN HALF BY 2030

In the face of accelerating climate change, we must take even more swift, global and collective action. Active in this area for 30 years, Hennessy is now taking its efforts even further.

CLIMAT

We have set a target of reducing our carbon footprint by 50% by 2030, particularly by lowering emissions from energy, transportation, packaging and vineyards.

With 95% of our transportation and shipping already carried out by sea and rail (which is less polluting than air or road freight), our next innovation will be to harness the wind, by shipping our bottles to the US on the sailing freighter developed by Neoline.

Our three distilleries are also aiming to achieve 100% decarbonization, thanks to their recent switch to biogas and the upcoming integration of hydrogen into the testing process. In order to help our distilling partners commit to this sustainable approach, we are providing support through a consulting program.

Finally, to reduce the impact of our containers, we are accelerating our research into eco-designed packaging, using recycled and recyclable materials, lighter glass bottles, and reducing the carbon impact of glass in partnership with our suppliers. Soon, our digital transparency platform will shed light on each stage in the lifecycle of every product, so everyone can have a better understanding of the manufacturing processes behind our cognacs.
