What is the Iowa Green Brewery Certification?
Developed by the IWRC, the Iowa Green Brewery Certification serves to provide our brewery clients with guidance to implement sustainable practices that focus on the following areas:
Sustainable materials management and solid waste diversion away from the landfill
Environmental compliance through exemptions to Iowa’s regulations
Water quality and conservation
Environmental planning through development of standard operating procedures and best management practices
The Iowa Green Brewery Certification is a free service for all Iowa breweries that awards sustainable achievements at various levels; Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Our points-based system scores each brewery’s sustainable practices and awards these achievements with a local press release, window clings and a certificate of achievement that promote positive public relations, bragging rights on our own social media about the breweries we work with, and continued support to help implement sustainable practices to increase scoring while decreasing negative impacts on the environment.
