Belvedere and environmental management

Wines & Spirits


Through ten series of photos shot by the VU agency, we spotlight initiatives by the Group and its companies to protect the environment. The first series features the Belvedere distillery in Poland.

Premium vodka maker Belvedere, a member of the LVMH Group, has its distillery at Zyrardow in Poland. The Belvedere distillery has always been exemplary in terms of environmental management standards. It has been ISO 14001 certified since 2007 and has implemented numerous measures to improve the facility’s environmental performance, particularly its energy consumption. The distillery now uses natural gas instead of fuel oil and recorded a 30% reduction in its greenhouse gas emissions in 2012. A program to reuse the heat generated by the distillation process is currently being rolled out and will be operational by the end of this year.
