Since late 2020, 4 Pines Brewing Co. have partnered with Landcare Australia to deliver two outstanding projects as part of its commitment to Brew Better. The first enhancing sustainable agriculture and on farm biodiversity in the brewer’s supply chain, which kicked off 4 Pines’ 1% for the Planet commitment; the second, to enhance local habitat, increase biodiversity and improve wildlife connectivity.

1% for the Planet is a global organisation that exists to ensure the planet and future generations thrive. As a member of 1% for the Planet, 4 Pines is donating 1% of its revenue from four of its beers (Pale Ale, Extra Refreshing Ale, Pacific Ale & Ultra Low) to Landcare Australia and other not-for-profit organisations.

In 2021, Landcare Australia identified the sustainability needs of Ryefield Hops, a family-owned hop farm in southern NSW that supplies 4 Pines. Based on the outcomes, in 2021-2022, Landcare Australia designed and delivered an on-ground agriculture project that demonstrates 4 Pines’ commitment to sustainable agriculture in Australia.

Giving back to Ryefield Hops is something 4 Pines is incredibly proud of, especially as Jade, Karen and Morgan from Ryefield had a rough 2019. Their farm was badly impacted by the severe drought and bushfires resulting in no hop harvest for the 2020 season. In total, 3,000 trees have been planted at Ryefield Hops.

4 Pines Brewing Co. partnership with Landcare Australia and Cricket Australia saw 44,444 trees, plants and shrubs planted at Cape Jervis on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. Four trees were planted for every 4 hit during by the Australian Men’s Cricket Team during the 2021/22 Summer of Cricket.

The outcomes of the plantings include enhanced landscape connectivity, improved biodiversity and the provision of long-term habitat for threatened species including the Glossy Black Cockatoo.

Since 4 Pines Brewing Co first partnered with Landcare Australia in 2020, the partnership has also supported a sustainable agriculture project to enhance on-farm biodiversity in the brewer’s supply chain.

As well as their 1% for the Planet beers, 4 Pines has been a B-Corp certified business since 2017. Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and accountability to balance profit and purpose.
