SUSTAINABILITY

Simply Stated - the ability too sustain something

Economic sustainability, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship are the pillars of our sustainability efforts.

Sustainability

- by definition, is a means of configuring civilization and human activity so that society, its members and its economies are able to meet their needs and express their greatest potential in the present, while preserving biodiversity and natural ecosystems, planning and acting for the ability to maintain these ideals in the very long term.

At Fraser Valley Hops Farm, we take very seriously our environmental impact and are committed to sustainable brewing practices. We’re trying to make our community greener by giving a percentage of our annual revenue to local environmental non-profits and supporting our local community growers and producers.

Economic

A key goal for Fraser Valley Hops Farm is to maintain the economic health of our growers and their employees, while simultaneously providing value to our brewing customers. Economic sustainability, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship are the pillars of our sustainability efforts.

We aim to consistently provide our customers with the highest quality hop products and promote environmentally sustainable practices throughout all operations. Our entire organization is built on the foundation of a culture of continuous improvement, and incorporates feedback from all stakeholders including hop growers, FVHF personnel, and our brewing customers.

Environmental

We take our responsibility as stewards of the land seriously, and we are constantly striving to improve our sustainability efforts here on our farm. We practice many sustainable farming methods including drip irrigation, composting, diligent scouting and integrated pest management, stripping and crowning, and a commitment to Salmon-Safe standards. From protecting the natural wetlands on our land to supporting biodiversity around our facilities and hop yards, we are currently expanding our ecological awareness and commitment.

Social

As any sustainability report will tell you, we believe our people are our most critical asset. Our ability to execute on plans, deliver on promises, and build the organization we envision all relies on people. We are fortunate to procure hops from responsible farmers who respect their workers and the environment.

FVHF has not been involved in, and strongly oppose, any significant negative impacts in our supply chain from labor practices, compulsory or child labor, and/or other human rights violations.
