One of De Bortoli’s first sustainability projects in 2008 was to plant 17 trees for every vehicle the business used, to offset the carbon emissions of the De Bortoli’s fleet. In addition, the growing of trees provide biodiversity, soil enrichment, protect crops from the wind and manage ground water without the use of power.
Now in 2020, 17 Trees is a brand with a purpose. Sustainability is a journey that is everybody’s responsibility. Hence 17 Trees is a solid collaboration with our suppliers, distributors, customers and consumers to plant trees to rebuild the Australian forest.
De Bortoli has partnered with non-for-profit organisation Trillion Trees to plant native trees for a sustainable future. Trillion Trees has been planting trees since 1979, with the vision to plant 1 trillion trees.
