Emiliana Vineyards obtains international Carbon Neutral Certification
- Jan 24, 2010
Emiliana Vineyards, a Virgin Wines provider, obtains international Carbon Neutral Certification of all productive and transportation processes at 'Los Robles', it's principal state.
Today, Emiliana is implementing a variety of mitigation techniques that include the use of solar panels, biodiesel fuel for its tractors, and organic and biodynamic agricultural practices, which fix carbon using green manure and composting, among other techniques.
For the first year Emiliana offset its CO2 emissions with the purchase of carbon credits equal to 684 tons of CO2 for a brazillian ceramic producer.
Emiliana Vineyards was granted the prestigious Carbon Neutral certification from the German certification agency TUV SUD.
'Carbon Neutral' means removing as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as is released through the production and transportation of the wines and implementing mitigation strategies based on the use of clean and renewable energies.
Christian Rodriguez the commercial manager of Emiliana says:
"It is not sustainable simply to purchase carbon credits to compensate for the pollution created...To make a truly valuable contribution, we must change our productive process using new technologies...this is the more challenging task and is the one that best fits the philosophy of Emiliana.
