Our pledge is to reduce our carbon footprint per bottle of wine sold. By reducing waste and product packaging, as well as more efficient transport and infrastructure, we have continued to minimise our environmental impact.

Unique to the wine industry, we have had our footprint independently measured and verified by the Carbon Trust and has achieved ISO14001 (Environmental Management System) certification every year since 2011. In the last 4 years alone, carbon emissions per bottle sold have been reduced by over 19%. Carbon credits are purchased to offset the remainder, making us carbon neutral.

We are only a handful of UK merchants to hold ISO14001 (Environmental Management System).  We first achieved ISO14001 certification in 2011 and in 2017 recertified to the very latest standard.  At the end of 2011 we launched our innovative industry leading service ‘Going That Extra Green Mile’.  That is our ‘milk man’ service – a complimentary pick up and recycling service for empty wine bottles and boxes.  In 2017, we recycled more than 9,000 empty bottles of wine and 5 tonnes of cardboard.  We have reduced the volume of waste we send to landfill by 50% since 2011.  We recycle 90% of our office waste.  Our own packaging is made from 70% recycled material.

This year we achieved Soil Association Certification which gives us an EU Organic licence. Our licence gives us certification of the legal compliance needed to import organic products from outside the EU and to market them as ‘organic’.
