Voyager Estate has recently been awarded the 'Wine Industry Initiative Award' for its outstanding environmental work in the inaugural Cape to Cape Catchments Group, Catchment Care Awards.
In competition with five other well-known Margaret River producers, the Catchment Care Award judges recognised Voyager Estate’s environmental practices as demonstrating ‘best practice’ sustainability initiatives which exceed minimum industry standards addressing energy efficiency, water conservation, water quality, waste minimization, sustainable land management practices and/or protection of biodiversity values.
Glen Knight, leads the Environmental Management Team at Voyager Estate.
“The judges not only considered our re-vegetation program and new winery waste water system but also took into account our recycling initiatives, pest and weed control and use of green energy. We are delighted that our efforts towards becoming a fully sustainable business have been recognised at this early stage.”
The Cape to Cape Catchments Group is an incorporated community-based catchment management group working in partnership with government agencies, landholders, educational institutions, industry associations and community groups to coordinate natural resource management in the Cape to Cape region. The Department of Water provides strategic support to the group.
The aim of the group is to support management of the area's natural resources for a healthy, productive and sustainable future. The group works in the area between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the South West of Western Australia.
