Wine producer Australian Vintage has taken huge strides towards environmentally sustainable business practices.
The producers will now be sourcing energy from solar and wind farms in New South Wales. The agreement will ensure that 90 percent of energy consumption will be met by renewable sources. To supplement the remaining power, Australian Vintage has signed a deal with energy provider Flow Power, who will supply the company with additional solar and wind energy from off-site sources.
Australian Vintage CEO Neil McGuigan spoke positively about this new endeavour. “We are extremely committed to the green agenda and take our responsibility to create a cleaner planet incredibly seriously. We are making significant progress on the ambitious sustainability targets we have set and are proud to be at the forefront of the renewable energy movement and leading the field in the wine industry,” said McGuigan.
Australian Vintage produces brands such as McGuigan Wines, Tempus Two and Nepenthe and stands strongly in the Australian wine market.
