Social & Environmental Responsibility

 

Carbon Neutral

 

We must be sensitive to our environment…

We care deeply about the environment and do everything possible to protect our planet for future generations. Our policy is to carry out all our business in a way that will lessen or eliminate any adverse ecological effects, which is a task when you ship substantial quantities of wine from Australia and distribute globally.

For as many years as we can recollect, we have operated with a virtually paperless office. We send no printed price lists or catalogues. All our wines are offered by email and on our website. Our invoices are sent by email and customers are encouraged to pay online or by bank transfer.

• Since May 2016, all of our packaging is 100% biodegradable.

• 100% of all glassware is recycled.

• 100% of all wastepaper and supplier packaging is recycled.

• Today (10/3/21), we have walked another step with full accreditation from the Carbon Footprint Standard. The Vinorium is a Carbon Neutral company, which we are delighted to share with you all…

What is the Carbon Footprint Standard?

The carbon footprint standard draws on and pulls together the leading standards in assessing, reporting and offsetting emissions. It is an internationally recognised standard that enables businesses to promote their low carbon credentials, whilst giving their customers confidence that an internationally approved process has been followed and verified against. The standard can apply to organisations, services, products and events.

There are three levels of the standard:

1. Carbon Footprint Standard – Assessed
2. Carbon Footprint Standard – Reduced
3. Carbon Footprint Standard – Carbon Neutral
