Belvedere, the world's first super-premium vodka, opened what has been three years in the making when in 2018. Belvedere was the first spirits distillery to receive a grant from the European Commission to pilot an ambitious biomass capture facility on site.

With the inauguration of the biomass capture facility today, Belvedere announced an accelerated schedule to reducing its energy CO2 emission: the new facility will start producing 100% renewable energy, and subsequently reduce energy related CO2 emissions by 95% by 2022.

Made With Nature—a powerful platform introduced in 2020 that firmly anchored the brand in nature— set out to demonstrate how in this new era of mindfulness, where consumers are more concerned than ever with what they are putting in their bodies, that Belvedere is made with Polish rye and purified water, then masterfully crafted in a distillation process by fire into an extraordinary vodka of taste and character.

​Equally as imperative to Belvedere, is what humans put into our land: codifying a commitment to nourish the lands we share as is exemplified by the opening of this biomass capture facility at the distillery. 

Looking to the future, the brand is taking bold steps in addressing environmental topics to preserve the terroirs its rye comes from, implementing new responsible business practices and innovative green initiatives.

These ambitions address various topics and come with more than a decade of academically researched methods and implementation and focus on solutions that prove better business makes a better world in the service of: nourishing the ecosystems, mitigating climate impact, and engaging with society.

President & CEO of Belvedere Vodka, Rodney Williams, commented on the inaugural opening of the biomass facility by noting that "There is a Chinese proverb that says, 'a journey of 1000 miles begins with one step.'  We know we have a long way to realizing our ambitions to nourish the lands we share and protect ecosystems and biodiversity we depend upon. This new biomass facility marks a major step (truly leap) forward towards Belvedere making good on our belief that better business practices create a better world" Williams continued, "we are building on these achievements by setting the bar even higher for ourselves with eight sustainability commitments achievable by 2025."
