Code of Conduct

Established on March 8th in Vienna, Austria

The purpose of this code is to make EBCU’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion clear to all who are involved or in contact with EBCU – including member organisations, delegates, staff and volunteers.

This Code of Conduct will be respected by all our present and future member organisations. When working with third parties we expect them to agree with this Code of Conduct.

Equality, diversity and inclusion applies to us all, both in terms of our obligations and our individual needs. We value the differences among us all. The diversity of our staff and delegates is a source of richness that benefits us all.
We want to provide an environment that is welcoming to all. We all deserve to live, work and meet in an environment where we are treated with dignity and respect. All member organisations, staff and delegates will treat each other appropriately and recognize the contributions and supportive efforts of all.
We want everyone to have the opportunity to be part of our organisation whatever their personal characteristics or social identities, their race and ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, abilities, socioeconomic status, religion or other background.

We will not tolerate
● Any form of harassment, disrespect, expressions or images with sexist, homophobic, transphobic, racist, xenophobic, stigmatizing and/or discriminatory connotations
● Moral, physical or sexual aggression, as well as physical, psychological threats or intimidation
● Insults, discriminatory behaviours, deliberate exclusion of an individual based on their identity.

Therefore, all member organisations, staff, delegates and volunteers agree to comply with the following:
● Treat all individuals respectfully, recognizing their human dignity, celebrating their diverse human characteristics;
● Contribute to a positive, supportive environment that is free of intimidation, exploitation, shaming, bullying, hostility, alienation, or harassment of any kind;
● Respect the opinions of others and address conflicts in a positive and constructive manner;
● Speak out when the actions of others violate the rights of any individual: We address the person in question and give positive feedback on their behaviour by describing the behaviour and/or language in question, explain the effect that behaviour is having on you/made you upset/uncomfortable/embarrassed/offended and tell them what we would like to happen in the future and politely suggest how things could have been handed differently;
● Respect others’ privacy in their personal lives.

If we believe this code has been violated, we will do everything we can to protect those who are victims and hold those responsible accountable for their conduct. If needed EBCU will take actions against those responsible after discussion and voting upon measurements by the general assembly.

Green Hop Beer

Hops are grown in the Midlands and South East of England. They are harvested during September and early October. The cones are separated from the bine and then dried immediately on a kiln, and pressed into bales to be stored until used – maybe for more than a year....
