Lawson’s Dry Hills is currently the only New Zealand wine producer to hold both ISO14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO14064 (carbon zero) accreditations.
A Toitū carbon zero certified organisation has measured, managed, and mitigated the operational emissions of its organisation, including business travel, electricity, vehicles and offices, in accordance with ISO 14064 1 and the GHG Protocol. Our commitment to being a carbon zero company is not a one-off, but an ongoing programme. Each year we will be audited to ensure we meet the requirements to retain our certification – an independent verification of our achievements to measure, reduce and offset our carbon emissions. We are therefore pleased to have successfully completed our second year of Toitū carbonzero certification in December 2021, having achieved the annual audit requirements.
In addition to our Toitū carbonzero certification, we are fully certified under the ISO14001 Environmental System (ISO14001:2015).
The internationally recognised ISO Environmental Management Systems Standard 14001 standardises a process to effectively control and continuously improve an organisation’s environmental performance. This enables efficient identification and control of the environmental impact of business activities, services and products, as well as provide a systematised ability to benchmark and achieve environmental objectives.
