Sustainability at Justerini & Brooks

Sustainability

Working towards a better future

Drinking fine wine shouldn’t cost the earth. We may not be a mega-polluter, but we feel it’s right to minimise our carbon footprint in whatever way we can. Whether that’s asking suppliers to reduce the size of their bottles or finding more sustainable packaging materials – we have a responsibility to find better solutions.

As a basic rule, our buyers only work with producers who make wines in ways that are both ethical and environmentally responsible.

In addition, we actively support beacons of sustainable winemaking. For example, we are now working with Felton Road in New Zealand and Chateau de Meursault – soon to be the largest certified organic estate in the Cote d’Or.

Sustainability

We champion producers who make wines ethically and sustainably and we feel it is only right that we work in equally environmentally-conscious ways. We have a sustainability programme manager whose sole responsibility is to co-ordinate and evolve this agenda.

Hybrid Delivery Vans

Justerini & Brooks’ most recent sustainable venture with delivery service Great Bear, has been to include environmentally friendly and economically viable Fuso Canter Eco Hybrid delivery vans to their fleet. These hybrid vans have proven to save up to 23% in fuel in short-radius distribution, whilst benefitting the environment through a reduction in CO2 emissions and reduced noise pollution. Justerini & Brooks will continually look to review their fleet as hybrid technology develops, with an eventual goal to roll out an entirely hybrid fleet.

Currently our offices are managed to minimise carbon emissions, we send zero waste to landfill and we have recently introduced hybrid vans to our delivery fleet.
