In line with our beliefs of maintaining an environmentally sustainable business, over the years we have introduced several initiatives that help us achieve these aims. Being signatories of the Australian Packaging Covenant and aligning with our beliefs to protect the environment and therefore the sustainability of our business, our aim is to reduce our impact on the planet’s resources with our policy for purchasing packaging. Where possible, our packaging is to be manufactured with recycled materials, or just as importantly, packaging is to be either re-usable or recyclable. We also encourage all of our customers to recycle the packaging in which our wines are delivered


To prevent pollution of our natural environment and build up soil health and biodiversity. We wish to restore 30% of our total landholdings to the original plant associations spread across the 5 different sub-catchments: – riparian zones (within all five sub catchments) – native grasslands (1 in Upper Saunders Creek) – sheoak woodlands (2 in North Rhine & Upper Saunders Creeks ) – peppermint box grassy woodlands (2 in North Rhine and Parrot Hill Creeks) – red gum grassy woodlands (1 in North Para River) – blue gum sclerophyll forest (2 in North Rhine and Parrot Hill Creeks) – stringybark sclerophyll forest(1 in Cock Creek, Onkaparinga). Our Goals: • To have a truly sustainable business – one that can prosper indefinitely • Move beyond compliance to the development of a leading edge organisation striving for excellence in everything we do • In the short term minimise and in the long term eliminate negative impacts that our day to day operations have on the environment • Have a commercial advantage
