Green Spirits Initiative
The IWSC’s Green Spirit Initiative award, sponsored by Berlin Packaging, has been created to highlight the impressive work being carried out by distilleries, producers, and spirit companies already on the journey toward improving their environmental credentials.
No matter your businesses size, we want to hear from you all about the great work you are doing to reduce your impact on the environment when making your spirit.
Applicants will be able to provide quantitative evidence on the nature of the improvements made and can demonstrate a causal relationship between activities undertaken and improvements achieved. Visible progress to becoming a more sustainable organisation must be demonstrated. Initiatives must already be underway; it is not enough to simply demonstrate intention.
Entry is open to all 2023 entrants to the IWSC spirit awards.
If you wish to be considered for this award, you must have entered the IWSC's 2023 spirits awards. Deadline for entry is 31 January 2023. The IWSC will then contact all spirits awards entrants later in the year (March/April) with the Green Spirit Initiative entry form. This will be your opportunity to share your initiatives and put yourself forward for the trophy.
“To have our sustainability initiatives recognised on a global scale by an authority such as the IWSC has made us tremendously proud.
"It demonstrates to our community here in Australia and around the world that we are doing is world class, and it’s not just us saying that!
"It’s a stamp of achievement and credibility that our trade customers, friends in media and our gin drinking community can celebrate and support.”
Michelle Hall, Four Pillars Gin
