Vignobles André Lurton once again certified ISO 14 001

Portrait Pascal Le Faucheur

“I am pleased to tell you that, as members of the first association promoting an EMS (Environmental Management System) for Bordeaux wine, Vignobles André Lurton, have just received ISO 14001:2004 certification for 2013/2014, and that we are implementing the aims of the Grenelle Environmental Forum.

The Environmental Management System  for Bordeaux Wine is recognized as equivalent to second-level Environmental Certification for viticulture.

This renewed certification proves our commitment to an environmental policy focusing on reducing energy consumption, maximising sorting and recycling, using sustainable agricultural methods, and protecting the health of employees, neighbours, and consumers. 

For the 165 employees of Vignobles André Lurton, this responsible and sustainable model is essential to ensure the health of future generations and as well as the company's long-term survival."

 Pascal Le Faucheur, Managing Director

In the framework of this environmental policy, Vignobles André Lurton have, for example, built a new 500 m² technical building (pictured above) at Château la Louvière. This will be used to house agricultural equipment, crop protection products, and new changing rooms and showers for employees.

Respect for the environment was a major consideration at each step of the way in constructing this building: rain water is recovered from the roof, the outer cladding panels are made of wood, vats holding crop protection products are leakproof, hydrocarbon separators are used in conjunction with the estate's nearby water treatment facility, etc. Everything has been done with a focus on protecting the environment.
