Spain’s Miguel Torres and California’s Jackson Family Wines were triumphant at the Green Awards ceremony in London.

Green awards logo 2012Organised and conducted by the drinks business, this year’s Green Awards were announced yesterday at The Ivy restaurant during a drinks event for winners, leading industry figures and press.

Among the awards presented were Green Company of the Year to Jackson Family Wines and Best Green Launch to Miguel Torres for Habitat wine.

In particular, California featured prominently, picking up awards for its generic sustainability initiatives as well as its leading companies Jackson Family Wines and Gallo.

However, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and Portugal were also recognised for their environmental initiatives in this year’s awards.

Overall, it was apparent from both the quantity and quality of entries this year – the fourth year that db has held the Green Awards – that the green agenda plays both a widespread and important role in the wine industry of 2013.

With so many entries demonstrating such a thorough, often imaginative commitment to sustainability, in some categories the judges faced a tough challenge in reaching a shortlist, never mind an eventual winner.

One thing is clear: commendable initiatives such as lightweighting and recycling are no longer enough to make you stand out from the crowd.

Today’s leaders in sustainability are restlessly pursuing measurable improvement every year, pioneering new techniques and achieving an impact that reaches far beyond their own direct business interests to improve the wider community and environment.

What’s more, they are communicating the effect of these efforts in a bid to inspire consumers and competitors alike to embrace the sustainable ethos.

Over the following pages are the winners of this year’s Green Awards by the drinks business.

The drinks business is extremely grateful to its sponsors of The Green Awards 2013: Ty Nant water, Fairhills Wine, and Amorim cork closures. It is also grateful to Amorim for providing cork frames for the awards certificates.
