Sion is General Manager and a shareholder of Lawson’s Dry Hills, one of Marlborough’s most established wine producers.
Throughout his almost 20-year tenure, Sion has worked towards a more sustainable path for the company’s wine production. His philosophy has been to take a more holistic approach and invest in the internationally recognised ISO14001 Environmental Management Standard, for which the company was certified back in 2011.
Under Sion’s guidance, in February 2021, Lawson’s Dry Hills became a Toitu carbon zero certified organisation having measured, managed and mitigated their operational emissions including business travel, electricity, vehicles and office in accordance with ISO14064 and the GHG Protocol.
Lawson’s Dry Hills is currently the only New Zealand wine producer to hold both accreditations.
