According to the World Commission on Environment and Development, “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” . While we often discuss environmental sustainability and economical sustainability, social sustainability is often left aside.
The United Nations Global Compact defines social sustainability as follows: “Social sustainability is about identifying and managing business impacts, both positive and negative, on people. The quality of a company’s relationships and engagement with its stakeholders is critical. Directly or indirectly, companies affect what happens to employees, workers in the value chain, customers, and local communities, and it is important to manage impacts proactively.”
Bearing this in mind, the importance to focus on social sustainability became clear for the wine sector and was translated into the Wine in Moderation programme.
Our Vision for a Sustainable Culture of Wine proves the commitment of the wine sector that cares for its customers and for its business in all aspects of sustainability.
