Bulletins and Information
Our Members receive regular bulletins, and have access to information pages on sustainability topics. For example, here is the April 2021 bulletin on Sustainable Winery Design.
This initiative encourages and enables Wine GB members to achieve the following objectives:
|Maintain and improve soil health||Improve winery design to reduce environmental impact|
|Manage vineyard canopies and yields optimally||Reduce the energy and water footprint per bottle of wine|
|Minimise and optimise pesticide inputs||Reduce the environmental impact of wine packaging|
|Conserve the vineyard (and surrounding) environment and promote biodiversity||Reduce the carbon footprint per bottle of wine|
|Reduce vineyard carbon footprint per hectare||Reduce, re-use and recycle winery waste and wastewater|
|Reduce, re-use and recycle vineyard waste|
Commercial Wine Producers can gain certification for their vineyards, wineries and wines by following the Scheme Guidelines and successfully completing an independent audit every three years.
In particular, they must observe, measure and record data relating to our sustainability objectives, which will then be benchmarked with that of other members. This will lead to a culture of continuous improvement towards our goal of securing environmental sustainability at the heart of the UK wine production industry
