Corporate Social Responsibility

Casella Family Brands is committed to continuously improving its environmental performance and focusing on the sustainability of our natural resources.

Environmental Responsibility

Casella Family Brands leads the way in waste-water management and is proud to have the largest waste-water treatment scheme of its type in Australia, capable of recycling the equivalent of 160 Olympic-sized swimming pools each year. This means that the company can retain and reuse all rainwater and wastewater.

Non-organic waste is recycled where possible, with 81% of it being recycled. All organic waste is recycled to make compost that is then used by Casella owned vineyards as fertiliser to produce wine grapes.

Regular audits are undertaken to identify energy-saving opportunities. Casella continually plans, documents, measures and monitors processes to ensure that environmental performance is constantly being improved.
