Founder - Alice Rule

When I was 25, I founded 3sixty2 with a dream to accelerate the circular economy in New Zealand wine.

Alice founded 3Sixty2 on two guiding principles - sustainability and guardianship of the land - the principle of kaitiakitanga. As a start-up operation, Alice had to incorporate new technology into her business for better operating efficiency, making 3Sixity2 agile and not bound by legacy systems or ideologies.

Alice won an AGMARDT scholarship June 2019 to undertake research through Kellogg Rural Leadership program. For six months she studied the circular economy of glass in NZ’s wine industry and researched producer responsibility schemes all over the world.

The knowledge and leadership skills gained through the programme have positioned Alice as an authority in sustainability and transparency within the wine industry. By leading this conversation in the sector, she believes we can position NZ wine as the most prestigious on the export market.
