Pernod Ricard Winemakers have signed up Conservation Volunteers Australia as a key environmental partner.   Pernod Ricard Winemakers is the Australian premium wine division of Pernod Ricard, the world’s co-leader in wine and spirits.

‘The work of the Conservation Volunteers is essential to securing a sustainable future, and our partnership with them enables our teams in Australia and New Zealand to participate in local environmental initiatives. Recently we launched a Willing to Give programme which means that, as well as fundraising for Conservation Volunteers, our teams are able to partake in important environmental and wildlife conservation projects.’ Bruno Rain, Chairman & CEO Pernod Ricard Winemakers

In the coming months we will see hundreds of Pernod Ricard Winemakers employees out volunteering on projects across locations in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. This global day of community service, encourages employees to support local community activities.

The partnership extends upon activities with Conservation Volunteers New Zealand focusing on environmental management of three key sites across New Zealand including Kohupatiki Marae, Cascades Regional Park and Para Wetland. In the last year Pernod Ricard Winemakers employees in New Zealand, contributed to the planting of 4,150 native stems, removed 7,500m2 of exotic weeds to reduce competition with native vegetation and maintained 6,000m of walking tracks.
