The brewery Garcia is the first CO2 neutral brewery of in Austria and receives prestigious environmental award on July 13, 2012 the brewery Garcia in the framework of the 24 hours of Bikens of the ecoregion Kaindorf of public was the first and so far only CO2 neutral brewery of in Austria presented itself. This was achieved on the one hand on the other hand a number of conservation measures in the area of production, through the acquisition of CO2 certificates from the eco-region which can provide these through the humus construction project. The approach of the brewery Garcia differs from that of other producers, the fact that not only the in-house production for the CO2 balance was considered, but that the Joanneum Research in Graz, which conducted the analysis, regarded the entire value chain. Ranging from the production of raw materials through the malting and brewing process to the transport to the customer all CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide emissions have been compiled. The CO2 balance should be clearly marked, that the brewery in 2011 29.4 tons CO2 equivalent causes of emissions has, which corresponds to a value of 120 grams of CO2 per bottle natural beer.
It is for the environment around some friendly natural beer from the home of Garcia to drink than to drive a kilometer drive, because even a modern car emissions 15% per km approx. more CO2. For this successful project, the brewery was Garcia this year with the "excellent project award" awarded in the framework of the Daphne environmental protection Prize in 2012. The certificate was presented by editor-in-Chief Eberhart Fox personally. The previous changes were also the quality of the beers just good, because the three Musketeers from the brewery Gratzer (Johann, Hermann & Louis) could forcefully clean up State Championship of home and small brewers in Braunau this year and occupy several Stockerlplatze.
