FIVS* Global Wine Sector Environmental Sustainability Principles

"The Global Wine Sector Environmental Sustainability Principles (GWSESP) is an international strategy that recognizes that solid environmental credentials are essential to the industry's survival and success."

The California Sustainable Winegrowing Program is based on the same sustainability principles as FIVS, which lends international credibility to the California program. Other programs that embrace the FIVS international sustainability principles include the Integrated Production of Wine (South Africa), Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, and the Australian Wine Industry Stewardship Programme. All these sustainable winegrowing programs incorporate the same principles of satisfying the triple bottom line of economic, environmental and social sustainability, among other sustainability principles as described in the GWSESP brochure.

*FIVS is a trade association for all sectors of the alcohol beverage industry, founded in 1951. Its members include producers, distributors, importers, exporters, and trade associations from around the world.
