Business and Biodiversity: Neumarkter Lammsbräu

Neumarkter Lammsbräu


For a long time Neumarkter Lammsbräu has meant breaking new paths and following fundamental natural principles. As an eco-pioneer right from the start, it was a matter of short-term success never for us of the company, but rather the need and self-imposed commitment to produce the best possible product in a naturally sustainable manner. To do this, we enshrined ten principles in the company policy early on. They range from our company's understanding of itself to understand as part of the ecological and social systems, through strict ecological brewing guidelines - the ecological purity of Lammsbräu - to endeavouring to make the relationship with our suppliers, employees and customers face-to-face at all times. The use of modern management systems, oriented to the ISO standards 14001 and 9001 and the EMAS regulation has helped us to put all this into day-to-day practice. And our success is proven, for example by the annual reviews of the EFQM, the Lammsbräu sustainability report and awards such as the EMAS Award 2012 and 2019.

The promotion of local organic farming is central for Neumarkter Lammsbräu, not least by our producer group EZÖB which now includes more than 160 farmers. Together with our farmers we have been actively campaigning for more than 25 years in the local region against the use of agro-genetic engineering and of pesticides and for the preservation of the natural diversity around us. 

But also nationally, we have always felt ourselves obliged to adopt a position. For example, we actively share our experience with other companies not least in the framework of the initiative for 'Biodiversity in Good Company', combine forces with them and thus contribute together to environmental and species conservation in our country.
