Gull a winner at Sustainable Business Network Awards

DB-Export-Brewtroleum-logo-greyFuel retailer Gull, and DB Breweries took out the Renewables Innovation Award at the NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards in Auckland last week.

They were recognised for ‘Brewtroleum’ a joint initiative with DB Breweries. Brewtroluem was borne from the idea to create a biofuel from beer waste, making it a world first commercial biofuel made from the by-product of the brewing process.

“We are delighted by this recognition, because we believe that everyone plays a part in acting ethically and sustainably,” says Karl Mischewski, retail and sustainability manager of Gull New Zealand. “When it comes to sustainability in the fuel industry, we have always been ahead of our time; this is evidenced in our market first offering of sustainable products.

“In comparison to our competitors, this clearly differentiates Gull as a leading biofuels retailer.”

The NZI Sustainable Business Network (SBN) Awards recognise companies that are making a real difference by transforming New Zealand’s business landscape.

The judges concurred; “Brewtroleum is a great use of a waste produce that shows Gull’s innovation in the fuel industry along with an incredibly effective marketing campaign used to generate demand for the product. Their success raised the profiles of both DB Export and Gull and brought renewable energy closer to the mainstream. DB Breweries and Gull were innovative in their use of the circular economy, finding creative efficiencies that fire the imagination.”
