Director of Regenerative Development
At Fetzer Vineyards, Josh Prigge guides the vision and execution of regenerative measures at the world’s first zero waste-certified wine company and largest organic wine grape grower in the United States. Prigge has led the efforts at Fetzer Vineyards to receive B Corp certification, Carbon Neutral certification, and Zero Waste certification. December 2015 saw Prigge appear as a speaker at the Caring for Climate Business Forum, the official business forum of the United Nations’ COP21 Paris Climate Talks in France, where he shared the company’s commitment and leadership in addressing the issue of climate change in the wine industry. Prigge now has established an ambitious goal that calls for the winery to eliminate all negative impacts and target a positive corporate footprint by the year 2030. Prior to joining Fetzer, Prigge was the sustainability coordinator at Hawai’i Pacific University, and served as president of the Sustainability Association of Hawai`i.
