The Drinks Business Green Awards shortlist 2022

Our judging panel, made up of key industry figures across wine, spirits and beer, have whittled down this year’s impressive haul of entries after hours of lively debate. We are proud to reveal the shortlist for db‘s Green Awards.

Now in its 13th year, the Green Awards was launched to draw attention to those drinks businesses that are going above and beyond to reduce their impact on the environment.

Below you’ll find all the companies that have been shortlisted for this year’s awards, except for a few special categories, the winners of which will be revealed at a live ceremony held from 3-5pm at The Club at The Ivy, London, on Tuesday 29 November.

Among these categories to be announced on the day are The Water Management Award, Renewable Energy Implementation Award, Logistics and Supply Chain Initiative and Green Personality of the Year.

Our judges were impressed by the quality of the entries this year, with one judge declaring that the greenest companies are those that are “prepared to look at the ugly parts of their business, not just the beautiful parts.”

The drinks business is grateful to our brilliant line-up of partners for the 2022 Green Awards, which include leading Portuguese cork producer Amorim; UK Champagne and fine wine importer Pol Roger Portfolio, Logistics solutions expert VinLog, and Welsh water brand Ty Nant.

Read on to find out which companies have been shortlisted. If you would like to attend the awards ceremony at The Ivy on Tuesday 29 November then please register your interest by emailing Isabel Distin at
