Transforming business at the Australian Business Awards 2015

De Bortoli Wines has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner in The Australian Business Awards 2015 for Sustainability.

The award recognises De Bortoli Wines’ achievements in implementing its ‘Re-Engineering Our Future for a Carbon Economy Project’, as part of its goal of becoming a zero waste winery. Since it began in 2011 with a $4.8AUD million grant from the Australian Federal Government’s Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program, complementing $11AUD million invested by the De Bortoli family, the project has seen the installation of the largest solar panel array of any Australian winery at that time and a focus on minimising waste, maximising water efficiency and reducing energy consumption in all areas of business. Based around eight key sustainability initiatives, the project is enabling De Bortoli Wines to reduce its energy footprint, while maintaining the quality of wine being produced.
