Banrock Station the Australian eco-friendly wine brand from Accolade Wines, has partnered with Landcare Australia to plant 100,000 native trees and shrubs every year from 2021. A core pillar of the Banrock Station brand is its commitment to the environment, demonstrated through the Banrock Station Environmental Trust, whereby a portion of profits are reinvested to support conservation projects around the world.
Landcare Australia has worked with Banrock Station for many years on projects in Australia, and this new partnership will help us to continue restoring our valuable natural assets and native habitat through planting hundreds of thousands of trees and shrubs for native animals and local communities. Investing in healthy landscapes is important for our environment as trees and shrubs cycle the oxygen we breathe, filter the water we drink, provide habitat for iconic and endangered wildlife, and sequester carbon, all while supporting the wellbeing of local communities too.
Banrock Station and Landcare Australia also recently partnered to plant 80,500 trees on Banrock Station as part of the Australian Government’s 20 Million Trees Program. The ongoing commitment from Banrock Station to the environment stems from their dedication to restoring and protecting wetlands and woodlands on Banrock Station, which led to the property being listing as a ‘Ramsar Wetland of International Importance’ in 2002.
