How can we contribute with wine?

Green tier Program

flyers for taking sustainable actions in the air and on the ground. The Green tier

program includes 6 categories that promote sustainability. In order to achieve

Green tier you must complete 5 out of the 6 categories. Learn more about

Qantas Green tier here. Completing the Choose Sustainable category is easy.

doing your part to help the planet, but you will also receive access to exclusive

Qantas offers and benefits. At Qantas Wine, Green tier members will be eligible

for 250 bonus points per case on designated Eco- friendly cases of 6 and 12

bottles.

Climate Positive Deliveries

There's many ways in which our Qantas Frequent Flyer members can help to create a sustainable future. By working together, our small changes can have a big impact. As part of our ongoing commitment to help minimise our impact on the environment Qantas Wine has made all deliveries carbon neutral. 

What is carbon neutral?

An activity or product is carbon neutral when its greenhouse gas emissions are equal to zero. Qantas achieves carbon neutrality on the Qantas Wine’s deliveries by purchasing carbon offset credits, which support verified carbon offset projects in Australia and around the world.

We recognise that many of our customers also want to do more, so we’re now offering the option to make your delivery ‘climate positive’.

Simply, use your points or cash to go one step further and make your delivery climate positive. 

Your contribution will go beyond achieving net zero carbon emissions to create an environmental benefit by removing additional emissions from the atmosphere. Plus, this will count towards achieving Green tier status. 

Use Qantas Points or pay to offset your contribution with cash and earn 10 Qantas Points per AU$1*. Your contribution will be used by Qantas to purchase carbon offset credits, which support verified carbon offset projects in Australia and around the world. Simply choose to add the Climate Positive Delivery to your cart, pay with cash or Qantas Points and your contribution will have made your delivery climate positive.
