Virgin Wines certified as carbon neutral
Virgin Wines has been officially certified as a carbon neutral business under the internationally recognised PAS 2060 standard.
The news means the company has become the first online wine retailer to achieve the status as it works towards its goal of becoming net zero by 2045.
Jay Wright, chief executive at Virgin Wines, said: “While our focus is on creating great quality wines, we also want to have a positive impact on our planet and help meet our customers’ aspirations to shop with more sustainable businesses. We’re very proud to have achieved the PAS 2060 standard, meaning we are now a certified carbon neutral business.”
The certification also comes as Virgin Wines publishes its first sustainability report, which will be included within its 2022 annual report.
Wright added: “Whilst being carbon neutral is a fantastic achievement, we understand that this is only the first step on our journey to reducing our carbon emissions. We’re committed to continuing to make progress in this area, and also being transparent with all of our stakeholders, looking forward to providing regular updates on this where appropriate now and into the future.”
