The Italian Ministry for the Environment, Department for Sustainable Development,Climate Change and Energy, launched a National pilot project in July 2011 in order to evaluate the wine-sector sustainability performance, based on Water & CarbonFootprint calculation, with the participation Of some major Italian wineries
The project idea is based on the awareness that a large share of Italian wine companies have already adopted sustainable strategies and production techniques in the vineyard. In addition, the wine sector took steps to modify cellars and marketing systems in order to improve environmental performances.
The project aims to add value to already tested techniques and processes and to identify actions to strengthen the supply-chain environmental quality, by combining the regional and National traditional knowledge with scientific and technological innovation.
With this project, the Italian Ministry for Environment supports the entry of the Italian wine sector into a process of life cycle environmental certification of its products. This action represents a strategic choice in the Corporate Social Responsibility of the Italian wineries, allowing them to increase their competitiveness and meeting the requests of increasingly aware and demanding consumers. The three-year project will enable to add value to the Italian wine, making it a “flagship product” of sustainable development in Italy and worldwide.
For dell’Acate Valley, an Italian company that operates in the world exporting more than the 60% of its wines, is a great incentive and commitment, not only to the world we live in today, but above all for what ‘the world we will leave tomorrow.
