Ron Barceló is the First Rum to Reach Carbon Neutral Status

The eco-conscious rum maker received this recognition based on the  Bilan Carbone® License

Ron Barceló Dominican rum, recently recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing spirit brands, has been a pioneer for ongoing education and action to climate change through its green-focused production. In honor of Earth Day’s 50th-anniversary theme #ClimateAction, Ron Barceló offers consumers an environmentally conscious product, and invites them to support and celebrate with the brands that take action, practice eco-friendly behaviors, and cherish Earth as a treasure that sustains and gives us life. 

As a result of its environmentally friendly practices, Ron Barceló proudly became the first rum in the world to obtain Carbon Neutral Status under the Bilan Carbone® License. Which measures 1) direct emissions caused by energy consumption, waste disposal, transport for workers and raw materials, etc. 2) indirect emissions due to production and transport of raw materials: glass, cardboard, metal, plastic, etc. and 3) indirect emissions related to commercial distribution of products and their final disposal.

Barceló employs several measures to reduce its emissions, including the use of renewable energy (solar and biomass), reusing, and recycling of manufacturing waste. More specifically, using the bagasse (residual cane pulp after the juice has been extracted) to help power the distillery, while the organic waste called vinasse fertilizes the sugar cane fields. Unreducible emissions are neutralized through a global offsetting program that is registered and certified within the framework of the Clean Development Mechanism and the Verified Carbon Standard. This is made possible by the assignment of carbon credits from several global projects. By offsetting their emissions, Barceló Rum promotes environmental protection through the use of clean technologies in other regions worldwide. 

Paying homage to the beautiful ecosystems of the Caribbean, Barceló inspires cocktail lovers with these recipes in honor of Earth Day. 

Ron Barceló is sold at major liquor and wine retailers across the US or simply order online now from Minibar, ReserveBar, Drizly, TotalWine, ThinkLiquor, or Caskers to receive in time for this celebratory occasion.
