C.R.I.S.P. borrows key aspects from each of these programs and will work in collaboration with local brewers to develop a transparent framework for certification. A system of analyses will look at scale, region, innovation, energy use, material use, waste, water, corporate culture and community involvement through a series of measurement tools designed to indicate impact throughout product lifecycle. Brewers will also receive a sustainable master planning document that is designed as both an assessment tool for purposes of certification, and a guidance document so that they can attain higher levels of sustainable practices.
C.R.I.S.P. stands for “Craft Responsibility In Sustainable Practices.”
