db Green Awards 2013 winners announced

Ethical Company of the Year

Winner: Stellar Winery

Stellar-OrganicsThis award recognises leading proponents for this key pillar of any sustainable wine business. Shortlisted candidates demonstrated a clear understanding and embrace of how their company can improve the lives of its surrounding community.

In Stellar the judges wished to acknowledge a South African venture that may not be as large as its competitors, but whose foundations are clearly rooted in the ethical treatment and empowerment of its local community.

Employees hold a significant share in this Fair For Life-accredited company and, having set up the Stellar Foundation at the end of 2011, last year saw the implementation of a number of initiatives that have seen far-reaching benefits to the neighbourhood.

Among the most significant is a meal and activity programme for children, which has seen police reporting a dramatic fall in crime. Other facilities include wages well above the legal minimum, a Primary Health Care scheme for all 300 workers, commitment to ongoing employee training, a community football pitch and a bus transport service.

Even the smallest schemes such as an organic vegetable garden and sun hats for workers indicate a business that is fully engaged in the process of resolving the unique challenges faced by South African employers.
