Among the winners, it is worth noting the prize for Caves de vins de Rabelais in Chinon for their collective initiative involving 13 wine-growers committed to reducing their ecological footprint: installation of insect hotels and nesting boxes in the vineyards, planting trees and hedges, management of grass-covered areas. 

As well as the prize for Fontevraud Royal Abbey for its circular economy and societal commitment initiative: controlled water and energy consumption, waste management, set up of an organic vegetable patch, managed by a social integration centre, to supply the hotel and restaurant.
