Sustainability is a key part of our business philosophy at Green Olive at Red Hill, winery and olive grove, and we are continually working to make our farm more environmentally friendly to improve the quality of our produce, protect the native animal species that live near us, and the planet as a whole.
A recent upgrade of the solar panels on our farm store and house mean that we are now able to produce 39kW of power. Our new solar photovoltaic (PV) system has the capacity to produce power for our entire farm. Our solar PV system is a clean, renewable energy source and another step in our journey towards a fully sustainable farm.
We are proud to be a Sustainable Tourism Accredited Business with the Australian Tourism Industry Council. We have also made the first steps towards getting an ECO Certification with Ecotourism Australia. We performed a sustainability assessment using the Strive 4 Sustainability Scorecard, which evaluates Australian businesses on their environmental, socio-economic and cultural impacts, as well as their sustainability management.
We aim to be an exemplar of best practices in sustainable tourism and as such, our sustainability practices are constantly evolving. We are looking forward to finding out how we can continue to improve the sustainability of our farm through becoming certified with Ecotourism Australia.
