Sustainability & Responsibility

Building a sustainable business in a changing world

Edrington was created to be a company that makes a positive contribution to the communities where we live and work. 

We have worked for more than 160 years to build a responsible and sustainable business that respects the environment around us.

Today, we use our Sustainability and Responsibility framework to set out our priorities and measure our success. The framework anchors four strategies that are designed to deliver the targets that make Edrington a more responsible and sustainable business: to protect our environment, promote our brands responsibly, help our people thrive, and give more to the communities in which we live and work.

This is underpinned by a governance structure and key performance indicators for delivery. We report on each of our four focus areas and our progress towards our targets in our Annual Report.

Protect the environment

We depend on the people and the environment around us and the climate crisis demands action from us all.

That's why we're working with the Science Based Targets Initiative to set a series of stretching science-based targets that will reduce our carbon emissions in line with a 1.5°C future.

It's important to be open about the implications our business has on the environment: distilling spirits involves intense heat and the purest water. Our brands need to be packaged with creativity and care and then transported to people all over the world.

Our environmental strategy sets out our plan to shrink our global footprint and reach Net Zero by 2045.
