OUR COMMITMENT TO NATURE

Belvedere Vodka is created by a collective.

From our eight local Polish rye sources, to our family of employees who distill Belvedere in our hometown of Zyrardów in Poland, our shared mission is to nourish the land we share and protect its natural character for future generations.

Green Energy

From 2012 to 2017, Belvedere cut energy CO2 emissions by 42% by shifting fuel sources. In 2018, we became the first spirits distillery to receive a grant from the European Commission to pilot an ambitious green energy initiative that saw the installation of a biomass capture facility on site in 2021. The new plant will start producing 100% renewable energy, subsequently reducing energy-related CO2 emissions by 80% for Belvedere to then become fully energy carbon neutral in 2022.

Organic Product

From 2021 on, all innovations will be organic. Having received our certification for organic production, we are currently working with our agriculture partners in Poland on the transition to 100% organic farming starting from 2023.

Sustainable Packaging

Sustainable packaging is a key priority for Belvedere. We have the goal of eliminating 100% of single-use plastic by 2022. At the same time, we implemented eco-design for our new products and point of sales materials, with a commitment to reduce the quantity of secondary and packaging material, achieve 90% recyclability for all materials, and have long-life solutions rather than one-time use. By 2025, we are committed to further reducing the use of plastic by 50% and use up to 50% of recycled plastic.

Local Sustainability Initiatives

Belvedere’s distillery has a long history in supporting sustainability within our community. Only sourcing our Polish rye locally, we have worked to nurture long-term relationships with Polish agricultural sources and are the co-founders of the Foundation for Local Environmental Protection.  

We also started the Raw Spirit Program, launched in partnership with the Technical University of Lodz to promote the sustainable growth of Polish rye.
