As a modern company, with a warm heart for our planet, all our choices are weighed with sustainability as the main pillar. Transparency is key to this. We are what we do, the outcomes can always be better, but we set the bar high. We keep questioning everything, and opt for improvement where possible – so here’s an invitation to you: keep us sharp and feel free to point us to progress.
When looking from the environmental impact lens, the area that has the biggest impact in winemaking tends to the the weight of the bottle. The heavier the bottle, the bigger the carbon footprint. Next to that, is of course the types of materials in use. We’re making conscious choices in both materials and executions, to minimise our carbon footprint wherever possible.
We’re striving to have our complete product range skal-certified by 2025. Not all our farmers will join us on this journey and they also deserve a year to fully orient themselves on new opportunities. Next year we’ll introduce new bottles for all our product lines: ecological glass, recycled paper, natural cork and the lightest material of screw caps available. We’re also changing the color of our caps to ensure the recycling machine can easily recognise it and pick it up. Starting next spring we’ll move to 100% solar energy as the roof of our winery in Amsterdam will be covered with solar panels. Bike deliveries to our customers in Amsterdam is something we’ve always done; the last challenge for us to tackle is the truck transport of grapes to the Netherlands.
