The Winemakers’ Federation of Australia (WFA) has appointed a new manager for natural resources to guide the company’s expanding environmental sustainability program.
Jonathan Green joins WFA’s Adelaide office from Darwin, where he spent three years developing environmental stewardship programs as senior project officer with the NT Department of Natural Resources, Environment, the Arts and Sport.
Previous to that appointment Green spent six years in similar roles with the Department of Primary Industry, Water and the Environment in his native Tasmania.
“Jonathan has university degrees in Arts and Science, a background in ecological science and experience in the practical side of delivering and building support for environmental programs at the grassroots level,” said WFA’s chief executive, Stephen Strachan.
“His experience and knowledge will be invaluable as we roll out the new EntWine Australia program and work to establish environmental sustainability as a core component and strength of the Australian wine industry.
