We established the baseline for measuring our environmental performance in 2006. Since then, we have been working together across Bacardi to improve our performance.

In pursuing this goal, we have made considerable progress, and have achieved consistent improvements in the environmental performance of our production facilities.

Over the past eight years, we have reduced water use by half and reduced greenhouse gas by one third.

Importantly, we have also reduced our accident rate by 90% across the business.

We have achieved these results by establishing best practice ways of working. We use the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Specification (OHSAS) management systems and hold certification to ISO 14001 for the Environment and OHSAS 14001for Health and Safety. This ensures that all our Bacardi facilities around the world use the same best practice and all sites drive for improvement.

None of this would be possible without the commitment and work of our employees, who have a passion for sustainability and who are determined to improve our environmental performance. We intend to continue improving and to be best-in-class in our environmental performance.

Rubies in the Rubble

After graduating with an MA in Mathematics and Economics in 2008 Jenny worked at Odey Asset Management for 2 years, however, having always had a heart for sustainability and good food, she left in 2011 to launch a food brand called ‘Rubies in the Rubble’.

 ‘Rubies in the Rubble’ is dedicated to making delicious products with a focus on using fruit and vegetables that would otherwise be discarded due to supply and demand imbalances or failed aesthetic standards.

With 1/3 of all food produced being wasted whilst over 1 billion people go to bed hungry, Jenny founded Rubies in the Rubble with a belief that there is enough food to feed everyone.  However, to make this a reality, we all need to play our part - through caring for our resources better and empowering those without enough food.
‘Rubies in the Rubble’ was Jenny’s response.  

Through their products, she aims to champion the message of valuing our resources and in-turn putting less pressure on the global food market.  ‘Our products are literal solution to food waste but also to stand as symbolic vehicles of our message- to consume less, think more, and be proud of it.’

Rubies in the Rubble have a range of chutneys, selling to Fortnum & Masons, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Waitrose, and independent retailers and catering suppliers.  They are currently developing a new, every-day product ranges with the aim of having a wider reach to grow the brand.
