Environmental excellence and eco-design
Optimizing environmental sustainability at all our sites
Water is a vital resource and necessity at every stage of our activity. Mounting pressure on water resources makes it increasingly important to use less water while still ensuring the impeccable hygiene so essential to quality production in the cellar. Tools such as blowers, spray balls and high-pressure cleaners allow us to consume less water but also produce less wastewater.
The best source of energy is the one not consumed. For this reason, we strive to scale down our needs and are rolling out a strategy based on energy efficient equipment, the insulation of our sites and tanks to reduce energy loss, and the use of heat exchangers to reuse energy.
At the same time, our view of our waste is changing. While the best waste is the one not made, ours can become a valuable resource for both us and our partners. We produce as little waste as possible and aim to strike a balance between thickness, lightness and the necessary resistance of the materials we use. We carefully sort remaining waste and recycle more than 80% each year. Specialized re-use and re-processing channels find new uses for materials in a circular economy approach that AdVini is committed to developing.
Eco-design center stage in our wines and packaging
At AdVini, we are already planning the next step: to re-use rather than recycle. At the forefront of reuse and returnable bottle schemes, we are a driving force of environmental innovation.
Terre Nature, AdVini’s début re-usable range, is a cutting-edge example of eco-design, with new corks, standardized bottles, and no gilding, varnish or block coloring. Thanks to the advice of our partner Oc Consigne, these new developments have established us as a pioneer in the exciting new world of re-use.
