BSCI Sustainable Wine Programme

BSCI’s Sustainable Wine Programme has been designed to respond to the need for a unified approach to integrating sustainability in the wine production industry. Through this programme, BSCI empowers companies with the necessary tools to efficiently address industry-specific labour challenges, such as the protection of young workers and women, seasonality, freedom of association, injuries at the workplace and protection of the environment.

The programme aims to show tangible improvements in the following key areas by 2018:
