Our Commitment to
Environmental Sustainability

Accolade Wines has a long-term obligation to managing our business in an environmentally responsible manner at all levels, from our vineyards through to our production facilities and distribution networks.

Investments in on-site renewable energy have commenced with solar panel installation at an Australian vineyard and in 2019, a 2.5MW wind turbine at UK’s manufacturing site ‘The Park’, significantly reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions.

The introduction of Garcon bottles for Hardys, Banrock Station, Anakena, a game changing innovative packaging of 75cl flat bottles, made from 100% recycled PET polymer. It takes 75% less energy to make a plastic bottle from recycled material compared with using virgin material, lowering the CO2 emissions by around 79%.

Accolade Wines is the first major wine producer to be fully Carbon Neutral, from vineyard to end of use, across our entire branded portfolio, bottled in The Park.
