Diageo is recognized as an eco-friendly producer

Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines were recognized for eco-friendly practices at four of their facilities. These include Beaulieu Vineyard, Sterling Vineyards, the DC&E Wines Carneros Bottling, and DC&E Paicines Operations. The four were honored by California’s Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) for implementing various practices to reduce their carbon footprint. Practices include a water reuse program at Beaulieu Vineyard and waste reduction efforts that have kept thousands of tons of waste out of landfills.

Diageo is no stranger to the WRAP award, as Beaulieu has received the award 17 times in the past. Here is an article from BrandsTell which breaks down these accomplishments and gives more specific numbers to show the power of Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines’ efforts.
