The Drinks Business’ Green Company of the Year: Tasca d’Almerita
Alberto Tasca, eighth-generation CEO of Sicily’s Tasca d’Almerita, recently accepted the Commendation prize in the category of Green Company of the Year at the 2017 The Drinks Business Green Awards.
The award follows Tasca’s certification of the SOStain initiative earlier this year. Tasca was the only Italian winery recognized at this year’s awards. The Drinks Business Green Awards is the world’s largest program to raise awareness of green issues in the drinks trade, recognizing and rewarding those who are leading the way in sustainability and environmental performance. Winners were announced live at The Ivy in London on November 20.
“It is a great honour to be commended in such a tough category,” Alberto Tasca says. “We consider the impact of every decision we make on the environment, so we are overjoyed to hear that our sustainable practices have been internationally recognized.” “Sustainability is something that we take very seriously,”says Tasca. “We work every day towards leaving our children with an environment better than our own. We do it because we know that like everything cultivated with passion, wisdom and experience, responsibility brings great results.”
