The Austrian Wine Marketing Board strives to provide up to date and interesting information about Austria, the wine-growing country, and publishes its own image brochures and information leaflets on “wining and dining”, as well as highly useful training documents. Additionally, the AWMB produces exhibitors' wine catalogues for many of the Austrian Wine events and fairs all over the world.
The Austrian Eco Label
Since early 2012 the AWMB has decided to successively produce all print products environmentally friendly. Documents which are printed on environmentally friendly paper with sustainable products and are recyclable are eligible for the Austrian Eco Label.
The Austrian Eco Label guarantees that
- the paper used in paper production meets both, highest quality standards and environment-friendly techniques and that 50% of the wood for wood and pulp production derives from sustainable forestry (thus contributing considerably to bio diversity),
- no environmentally harmful chemicals such as solvents, detergents, colors etc. are used in the printing process and that print products are, in the case of further processing steps, bound or refined in a recyclable manner and
- that the disposal of resulting chemical substances is based on a waste management concept.
