We are currently in the process of trialling lighter weight bottles and hope that if the trial is successful we can extend the use throughout our range. A local Carbon Audit was conducted last year and we have integrated this into our accounting management. This ensures we are constantly aware of our energy usage and carbon production. We hope that changes to practices throughout the company will be reflected when we complete the next financial years carbon audit.
Participation in a regional Climate Change Risk Management exercise has lead to the development of a BMP for Bremerton. As part of this a comprehensive audit of energy usage at our Matilda Plains Winery will be completed in the coming year. Reduction in waste water and continual planting of native vegetation ensure that we are working towards the neutralisation of our carbon footprint.
