Green Awards 2018: the winners revealed

Green Personality of the Year

Cindy DeVries, COO of Fetzer Vineyards

This year’s personality was selected for her single-minded drive to ensure one business lives and breathes sustainability. Working within a major producer of organic and biodynamic grapes, she has devoted 25 years to this business, furthering its commitment to environmentally-responsible winegrowing, while successfully navigating two changes in ownership.

This year, the operation, based in California, celebrates its 50th anniversary, having achieved both Zero Waste and Carbon Neutral certifications under our recipient’s management within the past three years.

In the past year alone, DeVries has been instrumental in California’s commitment to adopt 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045, and in 2019, will be a speaker at Porto’s Climate Change Leadership conference.
