In this Rabobank Liquid Assets Podcast (which you can listen to below) Katie Jackson and Julien Gervreau from Jackson Family Wines share their bold vision for a more sustainable wine industry and the progress they’ve made in their own operations to reduce emissions and increase efficiency – all while becoming more profitable in the process.

- How Jackson Family Wines dramatically reduced greenhouse gas emissions and water usage at their wineries, while saving and reinvesting millions of dollars in the process
- What steps other companies can take to tackle climate change in their own business
