As one of the biggest wine companies in the world, it is our responsibility to make sure our growth is sustainable to our people, our industry, and our planet.

At Accolade Wines, we have already accomplished great strides in sustainability.

The majority of Accolade Wines’ brands sold in the EU and UK have been certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Trust since 2020, 98% of our packaging across Australia and Europe is fully recyclable and we have launched many initiatives to support the safety and well-being of our people.

We have recently decided to move away from carbon neutrality and towards an emissions reduction strategy due to an increasing amount of scrutiny around carbon offsetting and neutrality claims.

We are now focused on our path to achieving Net Zero and having our Science Based Targets established and verified by March 2025. Therefore you will see references to carbon neutrality removed from all our marketing materials and product labelling going forward. For more information and regular updates, you can read more here.

Through this and our global strategy ‘Making Every Drop Count’, we are targeting the below areas where we believe we can make real change.
