Social Sustainability


FIVS-Assure is a reference guide that touches upon the many societal aspects related to alcohol beverages, ranging from drinking and driving to the responsible marketing of alcohol beverages. While scientific evidence pointing to the healthful benefits of moderate consumption continues to mount, FIVS also recognises that excessive consumption can be harmful. As a result, industry representatives have searched for ways to combat the myriad of societal issues that arise out of excessive alcohol consumption. FIVS-Assure provides guidance as to how associations and companies around the world might handle the many social impacts of over-consumption of alcohol.

FIVS Social Sustainability Principles for Ethical Trading (FSSPET)

The FIVS Social Sustainability Principles for Ethical Trading were adopted by FIVS in April 2017. This set of principles and values is a foundation for the FIVS Wine Sector Participants to incorporate social responsibility into their businesses. Members committed to the FSSPET, are guided by common values and principles to respect human rights and ensure lawful, fair and ethical behaviour in all their commercial dealings.
