Vice President of Sustainability and External Affairs, Jackson Family Wines
Leading the charge for change
The oldest child of Barbara Banke and the late Jess Jackson, Katie Jackson is this powerhouse company’s sustainability champion, and the young, fresh voice behind many of its worldwide brands. She leads the way on social and environmental efforts, as she helped introduce the first-ever Jackson Family Responsibility Report in 2016, which set five-year goals built around environmental stewardship, employee engagement, social equity and community involvement. Thanks to her initiatives, Jackson Family Wines uses approximately 50% less water than the wine industry average, and the company is the largest generator of onsite solar energy in the U.S. wine industry.
