A brewery has won a prestigious green award for energy conservation.

Adnams of Southwold in Suffolk has scooped the Innovation Award from The Carbon Trust, an organisation set up by the government to promote conservation.

Adnams scooped the award by introducing energy saving measures in its offices and brewery, where 90% of steam heat is channelled back into beer making.

The firm also used light beer bottles which take less energy to make and reduce fuel use when being transported.

A wide-ranging energy policy introduced by the brewery includes use of solar panels for power at a new distribution plant, low-energy light bulbs in buildings and all PCs switched off when not in use.
