Drivers for Sustainability Practices in NZ’s Wine Industry

About the Project

Researchers used a mixed method research process to determine what influences and drives sustainability practices, and to monitor environmentally sustainable practices in the New Zealand wine industry. First, informal interviews were conducted with 15 wineries in seven of the 10 wine regions. Then quantitative online surveys (10% response rate) were distributed. The study took place from December 2010 to October 2011.
