Marble Distilling Co. Expands Sustainability Efforts With Chris Davenport Partnership, Net Zero By 2022 And New Virtual Retail Store

CARBONDALE, Colo. – The leading sustainable distillery, Marble Distilling Co. (MDC) announced today a new partnership with Chris Davenport, two-time world champion skier, entrepreneur, and environmental activist. This partnership also launches MDC’s goal of production facilities at net-zero by 2022 and the launch of their highly anticipated e-commerce website.

A natural progression for MDC, the partnership with Davenport formed as both parties share a passion for true craft, quality, and sustainability. MDC recognizes that environmental sustainability contributes to value creation, reputation, and success. “Marble is humbled and honored to have Chris Davenport as a true partner alongside the Marble Distilling Company,” said Marble Founder & Head Distiller, Connie Baker.  “Our brands align in so many ways, but first and foremost in our determination to move the needle in terms of sustainability. In fact, where Davenport has helped raise the bar to do something bold for sustainability, he inspired us to take our own aspirations and commit.  Marble has risen to the occasion and commits to Net Zero by 2022.”

Chris Davenport remarks on the newly forged partnership: “I don’t just make critical decisions in the mountains; when it comes to what brands and people I support and partner with, I make critical decisions, too. Which is why when it comes to how I apres ski, I choose Marble Distilling Co. spirits. Their commitment to sustainable business practices — using far less water than most spirit brands and becoming Net Zero Electricity by 2022 — are super important to me, and to our local environment here in the Roaring Fork Valley. This is something they understand as a local company and as a steward of our unique surroundings.”

To achieve net zero, Marble Distilling Co. will add to their solar array and plans to be completely solar powered by 2022.
