Environmental Stewardship in Ground Transportation
The Beau Wine Tours Environmental Commitment:
In an ever-evolving industry, we have recognized the need for green ground transportation providers. As a Gold Member of Green Ride Global™ (GRG), we have committed to incorporating environmental policies and procedures within our business operations and are measuring, monitoring and reporting on our greenhouse gas (GHG) emission from our entire fleet.
Are Your Suppliers Environmentally Accountable for Their Carbon Footprint? We are.
As a ground transportation supplier who is environmentally accountable for their carbon footprint, we cautiously measure and monitor our GHG emissions and disclose the results through regular, third-party environmental reports to stakeholders and clients. Through Beau Wine Tour’s independent third-party relationship with Green Ride Global, we are held environmentally accountable. We issue regular stakeholder and client environmental reports documenting the carbon footprint from our fleet.
The Beau Wine Tours Environmental Program Consists of the Following:
- A comprehensive environmental policy that identifies and addresses the reduction of potential environmental impacts from all areas of our business operations.
- ISO 14001-compliant Environmental Management System
- Fleet GHG Inventory
- Ongoing measurement and monitoring of fleet GHG emissions
- Transition to the latest low-carbon vehicles and fuels
- Ongoing monitoring and enforcement of GHG emissions reductions including a responsible driving practice across the entire fleet
- Greening of the supply chain

Beau Wine Tours’ Protocols and Standards:
Green Ride Global ensures that our company’s Carbon Accounting™ procedures follow the emissions factors used by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Our environmental measurements follow the ISO 14064 GHG Measurement Standards, and the principles and protocols of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the World Resources Institute (WRI).
Beau Wine Tours’ Fleet Efficiency:
The carbon footprint of our fleet operations is tracked and audited by Green Ride Global. With the fleet being the largest part of our company’s carbon footprint, various internal and external initiatives are taken to reduce the GHG emissions produced by our fleet. These initiatives include, but are not limited to, providing access and exclusivity to the latest Clean Burning Diesel Engine Technology, hybrid vehicles, transitioning to alternative fuels, implementing responsible driving practices, and maximizing vehicle fleet efficiency.
Beau Wine Tours Facility:
Our headquarters in the corporate district of Carneros consists of 20,000 square feet of warehouse, 3000 square feet of office space, and two acres of outside parking. Our green initiatives ensure our facility is both efficient, and environmentally friendly. Through low watt, high-efficient warehouse lighting that is motion triggered, to energy efficient break room appliances and computers, to installation of low carbon HVAC units, our buildings are as energy efficient as possible. Our on-site service and repair mechanics practice industry best solutions for the recycling of fluids and tires. Additionally, our entire facility and employees practice a comprehensive recycling program to ensure the minimal amount of waste is produced on our premises, and in the field.
