BeatBox Beverages announces the release of its first sustainability report with CarbonBetter.
AUSTIN, TEXAS—BeatBox Beverages (BeatBox), the fastest-selling ready-to-drink (RTD) cocktail and wine brand in the United States, today announced the release of its first sustainability report in partnership with CarbonBetter, a minority-owned climate and sustainability consulting firm headquartered in Austin, TX. The 2021 BeatBox Sustainability Report highlights the company’s sustainability journey from start-up to scale-up, focusing on comprehensively quantifying and disclosing its impacts for carbon, water, and waste. Download the full report here.
Key 2021 Sustainability Report Highlights:
- BeatBox implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) to track its environmental progress, actions, and compliance and facilitate continuous improvement of sustainability efforts.
- Beatbox implemented a formal Environmental Policy, committing to reduce its environmental impacts while leading change in its industry and pushing for innovation.
- BeatBox’s staff continues to primarily work remotely, cutting down on potential emissions associated with employee commutes.
- BeatBox’s co-packer partner has a dedicated sustainability team and programs for waste management, forest management, and the efficient use of water. For example, the co-packer uses treated wastewater on agricultural fields and gardens to reduce stress on the local aquifer, and it maintains a 12-hectare area of forest that sequesters an estimated 4,000 tons of carbon annually.
- BeatBox continues its commitment to the circular economy, using a byproduct of orange juice production as a key ingredient rather than it being diverted as a waste stream.
- BeatBox has formed the Carton Recycling Action Group through a partnership with the Naturally Network, a national organization in the U.S. that is an agent of change for conscious consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies, to champion sustainability improvements for carton containers and increase both recycling access and recyclability of cartons.

Looking ahead, BeatBox has set goals for improvements, including ensuring complete supplier alignment with its Environmental Policy, evaluating new ingredient sources that are closer to its co-packer, working with its co-packer to implement clean energy projects and further reduce its water impacts, and continuing to focus on utilizing the best possible ingredients to ensure the highest quality and most enjoyable taste in every carton while also honoring the company’s commitment to the environment and reducing its impacts.
