SUSTAINABILITY UPDATE | OUR PARTNERSHIPS
02 Dec 22
Here at Juliette Hogan, we are proud to partner with like-minded brands that believe in quality throughout all that they do and who align with our sustainability vision.
We wanted to share how we are working with our brand partners in the sustainability space and why we value them highly.
Audi is committed to offering their customers the best form of sustainable mobility and to act consistently in a sustainable way across all areas of the business.
Our partnership activity with Audi has shifted to hero our shared sustainability commitments highlighted by our move to electric and low emission Audi fleet vehicles. This move has contributed to a significant reduction in our carbon emissions (-13%).
Outside of our partnership, Audi's sustainability goals support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and they look to the entire life cycle of their vehicles as they work towards these:
- Audi are active members of various industry initiatives, associations and working groups including the Global Battery Alliance and the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI), who work with stakeholders to address ecological, economic, and social issues.
- Expanding their electric vehicle offering and to offset the demand for batteries by working towards a circular battery lifecycle.
- Reducing the environmental impact of Group sites by 35 percent per car produced by the end of 2025 (compared with the reference year 2010).
- By 2025, all Audi plants will be completely carbon neutral and produce no wastewater. The Brussels (CO₂-neutral) and San José Chiapa (no wastewater) plants have already achieved this goal.
Amisfield is committed to environmental responsibility at every step, and in 2021 completed the five year process of converting their entire Estate to organic viticulture and were named as Organic Vineyard of the Year in 2020, and again in 2022 as part of that process.
Our partnership with Amisfield looks to hero this achievement, and we are so proud to provide the uniform for the team at the renowned Amisfield Bistro.
The bespoke print of the Amisfield uniforms was created from abstracting a foraged bouquet of vines and wildflowers collected during our Harvest Event at the organic Amisfield Vineyard and it nicely talks to the bio-diversity of the vines as part of a healthy and robust ecosystem. The base cloth of 100% recycled polyester was a natural choice for their team - combining the hard-working properties of polyester with consideration for the environment.
Amisfield's vineyards continue to be managed holistically through organic practices focused around nurturing their central Otago unique soils and habitats gaining a full organic certification with BioGro.
One of Amisfield’s main sustainability projects has been the development of Aotearoa’s first wetland winery wastewater recycling plant, which has set new benchmarks for the industry. The wastewater recycling plant channels water through a purpose-built wetland area, before being used as irrigation.
Amisfield also plays an active role in supporting the region’s biodiversity, through initiatives such as a Native Planting programme, the introduction of a rasp of African Guinea Fowl and introducing fish species.
We were excited to formalise a new partnership in 2022 with Antipodes Water and look forward to working with these leaders in their field. Antipodes are fiercely committed to sustainably and ethically producing the world’s purest water. Antipodes was the world’s first certified carbon zero water and have been acknowledged by the United Nations for their environmental responsibility.
Antipodes sources their award-winning water from a 327m deep pressured aquifer near Whakatane. Their water is naturally filtered through dense volcanic rock and contains high levels of silica, resulting in a smooth mouth feel. The aquifer naturally replenishes at a rate much faster than production, and they bottle in order to ensure they are taking from the environment responsibly. Antipodes have been carbon zero since 2007. They hold net carbon zero and carbon zero certifications with Toitū and are a member of the United Nations Carbon Neutral Network of companies and countries.
Their distinctive glass bottles are made-to-order from New Zealand and made of recycled glass. Antipodes uses 100% renewable energy sources and have created a wetland reserve around their source to enhance and preserve biodiversity.
