Sustainable Winegrowing Australia is the Australian wine industry's sustainability program – set up to support growers and winemakers in demonstrating and improving the sustainability of their businesses.
The program covers the fundamental components of sustainability (environmental, social and economic) and can be applied to both the vineyard and winery. It provides benchmarking tools and resources to enable planning, evaluation, control and communication.
Sustainable Winegrowing Australia is managed by the AWRI, with strategic direction from a steering committee with representatives from the AWRI, Wine Australia and Australian Grape & Wine. Industry input is provided by a Sustainability Advisory Committee which includes program users, regional representatives and other key stakeholders.
