Sustainability and responsible business are at the heart of the UK’s drinks industry and the 2022 Footprint Drinks Sustainability Awards, in association with C&C Group PLC, are the annual celebration of the businesses who are genuinely implementing change and building a better world.

Leaders from across the drinks industry were at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London’s Portland Place last night as businesses came together to recognise the work they’ve put in to maximise their positive impact on the world.

With the pressure of inflation and the cost of living crisis on everyone’s mind, consumers are re-evaluating the way they spend their money and are more aware than ever of the impact the brands they use have on the world around them. The UK drinks industry has risen to this challenge, and last night guests heard of the innovative ways in which businesses of all sizes are leading the way in sustainable ways of operating.

The winners of the 2022 Footprint Drinks Sustainability Awards included Asahi UK, Revolution Bars Group, Budweiser Brewing Group and Avallen Spirits.

Charles Miers, Co-CEO & Founder Footprint Media Group, says: “We would like to extend a big congratulations to all our winners and finalists for their fantastic achievements and the trail-blazing work they are doing to embed sustainability and responsible business practices right across the drinks industry. They are carving out a path for others to follow and showcasing the very best of this most vibrant and innovative of sectors.”

The annual awards are the barometer for sustainability and responsible business practice for the drinks industry. The awards are open to drinks businesses, suppliers and stakeholders of all sizes operating in the hospitality and out of home arena.
