De Bortoli Wines will receive a grant of almost $5 million from the Federal Government’s $1 billion Clean Technology Investment Programs to introduce $14.5 million worth of clean technology across five sites.
The Minister for Industry and Innovation, Greg Combet highlighted this grant will assist De Bortoli to reduce their emissions and save on power bills by improving their wine-making process, packaging, warehousing, and site services.
“The Clean Technology Investment Programs are about helping businesses become more efficient, more competitive and more sustainable,” Mr Combet said.
“This grant will enable De Bortoli to reduce its carbon emissions intensity by 36.30 per cent.”
Federal Member for Chifley, Ed Husic praised De Bortoli on their $11 million investment in low emissions technologies.
“De Bortoli is a tremendous example of business choosing to do the right thing for the environment and for future generation,” Mr Husic said.
I’m really impressed with how wide ranging and thorough De Bortoli’s program is to use their resources smartly and efficiently.
“This project will see De Bortoli Wines improve their equipment across sites in Queensland, Victoria, and New South Wales including here in Chifley.
“This is another great example of the Federal Government supporting a local company to transform its operations and help secure its future.”
The grant is one of 13 announced by the Minister.
The $800 million Clean Technology Investment Program and the $200 million Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program are open for applications from local manufacturers who can contact AusIndustry.
