Could Inflation Make Beer More Sustainable?

A conversation with Bourcard Nesin, beverage analyst for Rabobank Food and Agribusiness Research. We’ll discuss his recent research that has focused on issues of packaging and sustainability, including:

  • The climate impact of different packaging formats (cans v. glass v. kegs etc.)
  • The interaction of inflation, packaging and greenhouse gases
  • How does the US beer packaging compare to other countries vis-à-vis sustainability
  • Do consumers give a crap?
  • What can companies do to make packaging more sustainable
  • How bottle bills and policy making could impact beer packaging
  • After years of inaction, is there any room for optimism?
