Winemakers working together to forge their futureIn 2007, Cave Jaillance and 9 other pioneering wine producing cellars, each a leader in its region and striving to find a balance between their economic activities and their impact on society and the environment, decided to design a Sustainable Development strategy. Today, the collective has grown and Vignerons Engagés represents more than 6,000 winemakers and employees throughout France.
The first french sustainability & CSR certificationTIts schedule of requirements is audited and assessed by AFNOR, the independant french standardization association. It is based on ISO 26000, the internationnally recognized CSR standard.
