The Brewers Association Technical Committee is working to develop three sustainability manuals during 2012 for use by its diverse brewery membership. Proposals are now being accepted from vendors with substantial knowledgeable in sustainability efforts in the brewing industry,
Three Sustainability Manuals
The manuals will be organized by topic, focusing on three areas prioritized by the BA Technical Committee. The three areas of focus for are:
- Water and Wastewater treatment and volume reduction
- Energy usage, GHG reduction, efficiency and load management
- Solid waste reduction
BA brewery member businesses are diverse in size and function. The manuals' content will contain information and solutions relevant to small and large brewery operations, and scaled to those budgets. The manuals will contain information written to be valuable to technically adept readers as well as relatively less technically savvy brewery owner seeking to learn more.
The successful vendor will bring substantial experience within the beverage industry and the brewing industry in particular, and will understand how to address the particular needs of relatively smaller craft brewing companies.
Request for Proposal Guidelines
In the Request for Proposal Guidelines, the project is more clearly defined and requested proposal elements are outlined. The BA invites interested vendors to submit proposals no later than March 28, 2012.
Proposals (Word format) and any questions should be submitted by email to Chris Swersey, Technical Brewing Projects Coordinator.
Thank you in advance for your interest in the Sustainability Resources project. The BA Technical Committee looks forward to your participation.
