Kim Jordan

Founder and Chief Executive Officer, New Belgium Brewery

We try to make the most environmentally-friendly choices possible at New Belgium, so that we are doing all that we can to help the Endangered Species Act protect the fragile ecosystems of this country, and so that we can continue to craft good beer.

At New Belgium Brewing, we try to be excellent and loving in everything we do, beginning with how we run our company. To be transparent and foster community, we have implemented many initiatives over the years, from open book management and employee ownership, to environmental stewardship.  The idea of community forms a large part of our ideology at New Belgium, and the environment factors heavily into our idea of community.

Each species of flora and fauna plays a valuable role in local ecosystems, and when one disappears it throws the entire system into disarray. Legislation like the Endangered Species Act protects species, ensuring that the crops that we turn into beer have a stable ecosystem to grow in, which is important to New Belgium’s long-term prosperity, too.  We try to make the most environmentally-friendly choices possible at New Belgium, so that we are doing all that we can to help the Endangered Species Act protect the fragile ecosystems of this country, and so that we can continue to craft good beer.
