The Scotch Whisky Association said the detail was still being worked on, but the aim will be to improve on what it already sees as a positive record on green issues.
Spokesman David Williamson said: " A number of expert groups
have been set up looking at a variety of areas, from production through to distribution, looking at how the industry can build on a very strong environmental record.
"We'll set some challenging targets in terms of reducing our environmental impact."
The SWA took the industry's
environmental credentials to Brussels last
week at a conference to mark EU Green Week.
It presented a range of industry initiatives, including recycling energy from whisky production to provide heat for Scottish communities, research into ways to turn waste products from whisky-making into alternative energy sources, and use of lightweight packaging.
Morag Garden, the SWA's environmental affairs manager, said: "Distillers are continuing to work to reduce the impact of their operations and promote long-term sustainability."
