Viticulture – Global trends presentation Site / company name and logo here Presenter/s names here This is an Agrifood Skills Australia Ltd project developed in partnership with Energetics Pty Ltd and funded by the Australian Government under the Clean Energy and Other Skills Package
Major trends in the Wine Sector Growth: stagnant domestically, declining overseas, rising international competition locally Market: volatile export markets, high Australian dollar, supermarkets influence, oversupply of grapes and wine Customer: consumer preferences changing Sustainability Compliance & Labelling – GHG reporting (e.g. Carbon Disclosure, GRI), international enviro labelling
Drivers for action by business Cost: rising for energy, water, carbon Competition: Influx of South American wines, tighter margins, green differentiation and niche marketing (organic, carbon neutral) Compliance: increasing regulatory burden as Governments seek to overcome market failures to act – water and energy Community expectation: brand reputation Customer: supply chain pressures to reduce price and report environmental performance
Australian energy and water trends, policy and legislation
Water programs / initiatives Improving Water Efficiency Water ManagementAlternate Water Supplies EREP Environment and Resource Efficiency Plans Catchment planning Murray-Darling Basin plans Irrigation & water licensing: extraction, storage Water re-use / recycling Harvesting Water trading schemes WSAP Water Savings Action Plan WaterMAP Water Efficiency Plans Sustainability Advantage NSW voluntary program Desalination WEMPS Water Efficiency Management Plans National Water Initiative ($12 bn) Water discharge quality e.g. EPA license requirements and/or run-off Stormwater management Flow attenuation, mitigation
Energy programs / initiatives Improving Energy Efficiency Reducing Greenhouse Gas & Carbon Emissions Increasing Renewable Energy EEO Energy Efficiency Opportunity Act (large corporations) Voluntary Greenhouse reduction programs NGER National Greenhouse & Energy Reporting Act RET Renewable energy targets (Large RES and Small RES) Voluntary Green Power Carbon Price and Trading, carbon farming initiative State Energy Efficiency programs e.g. VEET, ESS, EREP, Sustainability Advantage, SESP State renewable energy targets Clean Energy Future initiatives for Business – e.g. Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program Industry voluntary environmental / sustainability assurance – e.g. entwine australia
