Constellation Brands Contributes $700K To Nature Conservancy

Victor, New York-based Constellation Brands has announced a two-year commitment of $700,000 to The Nature Conservancy.

This contribution is intended to benefit watersheds in communities where Constellation Brands operates, contributing to the company’s water replenishment targets first announced in April.

In February, the company announced a $200,000 donation to support TNC’s broader Global Resilient Watersheds program, which is focused on making watershed health a priority by investing in nature-based solutions, such as forest protection, regenerative agricultural practices, wetland restoration and natural vegetation corridors along waterways. It also aims to restore watershed health and revitalize degraded freshwater systems around the world.

The remaining $300,000 will be leveraged over two years in support of The Nature Conservancy’s dynamic water management programs in California. Drawing on two nature-based opportunities, the dynamic water management programs in California target communities where a number of Constellation’s winery facilities and operations reside.

These programs are designed to bring to life important proof of concept strategies for rebalancing water demand for people and nature that in turn may be implemented on a broader scale to seek to address water challenges across the State of California and elsewhere.

In addition to helping improve watershed health for the broader community, nature-based solutions implemented through the dynamic water management programs are expected to provide volumetric benefits toward Constellation’s water replenishment goals.

Between 2023-25, Constellation is targeting to restore 1.1 billion gallons of water withdrawals from watersheds, while improving accessibility and quality of water for communities where the company operates. To achieve this target, Constellation developed a strategy focused on water efficiency, watershed restoration and water accessibility and quality.

“We recognize access to clean water is a human right, and as a community member it is our responsibility to help ensure the resiliency of this resource in the areas where we live and work for generations to come,” said Mike McGrew, Constellation Brands’ EVP and chief communications, CSR and diversity officer.

“Collaborating with community members and supporting organizations like TNC to determine how we can collectively protect and restore water sources is a key component of our overall water stewardship strategy.”
