Everyone needs to be responsible for the environment and Lawson's Dry Hills is no different.
The Marlborough wine company received accreditation from Toitū, having met the requirements of ISO14064, which specifies the principles and requirements for quantifying and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals, and includes requirements for the design, development, management, reporting and verification of an organisation's GHG inventory.
General manager and shareholder Sion Barnsley says the company achieved the ISO14001 environmental management system in 2011 and becoming carbon zero was a natural progression.
"We have always considered sustainability in our decision-making across the business and to attain carbon zero status is an achievement we are very proud of."
He says the small team has strongly supported the vision "and everyone has contributed to this important milestone".
Group marketing manager Belinda Jackson says sustainability is becoming increasingly important for those making purchasing decisions, "So we're delighted that our environmental credentials adds further value to those enjoying our wines."
