After years of hard work and dedication in the fight to curb carbon emissions, the Perdeberg Group is now officially recognized as a Carbon Hero. 

This status, which they share with other prolific wine producers, will allow them to utilize the data that they have captured to determine and set the sustainability goals they have set for the foreseeable future.

Carbon Heroes is a recognition platform built on the ethos of transparency and trust. While only emissions datasets graded by Blue North qualify for the platform, they do not independently verify all the information their Heroes choose to post. By signing up to the platform, each Carbon Hero acknowledges that they are responsible for the information they share and that, by sharing their sustainability credentials, their information is in the public domain and open to be scrutinized.

The use of a carbon calculator will further assist the Perdeberg Group in reducing their carbon emission as set out in their sustainability goals. These include solar energy, water wise; reduce, reuse, recycling, and biodiversity.

Whilst sustainability can be interpreted in many ways, Perdeberg has considered it the flip side of risk. “We have identified all risks, both internal and external, putting in place mechanisms to minimize or eliminate these threats. We believe that adopting this approach can pave the way for a sustainable business. This carries through to our four strategic pillars – Purpose, Plant, People and Profit – a guideline we follow to remain consistently sustainable", comments Chantelle Boucher, Marketing Manager at Perdeberg Group.

Within each pillar, a specific activity has been identified to reinforce the connection between environmental health, social well-being, and Perdeberg’s financial success and resilience. Not only passionate about making great wines but also committed to making a difference by being good to the earth and good to their people.
