Treasury Wine Estates announces partnership between Lindeman’s and the Carbon Trust
Treasury Wine Estates has announced its Lindeman’s brand will be heading towards carbon neutrality by the end of this year
Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) is proud to announce a new partnership between Lindeman’s and the Carbon Trust – a collaboration that aims to see its Lindeman’s branded range of products certified carbon neutral in Europe by the end of 2020.
TWE has been working in partnership with the Carbon Trust, a global climate change and sustainability consultancy for the last year to measure the product carbon footprint of its glass and cardboard packaged Lindeman’s range and certify the brand to the internationally recognised PAS 2050 standard in Europe.

These include moving the whole portfolio in Europe to lightweight bottles, optimising the recyclability of its packaging and using solar-powered, renewable energy as well as efficient refrigeration at winery-level.
And to realise its goal of making the Lindeman’s portfolio in Europe carbon neutral by the end of 2020, TWE has offset the remaining footprint by working with Carbon Footprint Ltd and investing in carbon credits from inspiring global carbon positive projects such as:
TWE recently announced new sustainability goals including the introduction of Global Packaging Guidelines with targets of 100% of packaging to be recyclable, reusable or compostable by end of 2022 and 100% of product and outer packaging materials to comprise 50% average recycled content by 2025 globally.
