The project that aims to reduce the emissions of viticulture

In all, there are three phases on which the project aims to develop: from the analysis of the carbon balance data of the entire Burgundy production chain to the definition of the strategy for reducing carbon along the chain, finally, we work to try to compensate for greenhouse gas emissions that cannot be completely eliminated

objectif climat was born in Burgundy, a renowned French wine territory, as a project that includes the Interprofessional Consortium of Local Wines (Bivb) and the Adelphe company, which in France aims to reduce the environmental impact of packaging. The entire project is part of that national strategy that aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 , the deadline for what is the long-term strategy developed by the European Commission with respect to climate impact.

In all, there are three phases on which the project aims to develop: from the analysis of the carbon balance data of the entire Burgundy production chain to the definition of the strategy for reducing carbon along the chain, finally, we work to try to compensate for greenhouse gas emissions that cannot be completely eliminated. All according to a line of action that should obtain the “Low carbon” certification of the French Ministry of Ecological Transition.

However, in the last fifteen years the wine-producing regions in France have managed to improve the aspect of sustainability linked to the carbon bill , thanks to a robust environmental effort, even if it has irremediably been acknowledged that the companies themselves have not those technical – but above all financial – skills to enable them to achieve the strategy goals set by 2050,

The importance of this project is therefore born from this objective limit, which becomes a “pilot” and strategic for the entire wine chain , well beyond Burgundy. Bibv with Adelphe therefore aims to carry out an action that aims to capture Co2 and thus promote biodiversity in those areas where viticulture predominates. With the aim of exporting and replicating the same model wherever vines are grown and wine is produced.

“The transition to a climate-neutral society is both an urgent challenge and an opportunity to build a better future for all . All sectors of society and the economy will play a role: from the energy sector to industry, mobility, construction, agriculture and forestry. The EU can lead the way by investing in realistic technological solutions, empowering citizens and aligning action in key sectors such as industrial policy, finance and research, while ensuring social equity for a just transition “, reads in a note from the European Commission.

Because, in the end, the point is that the. The environmental and social account of climate change is getting higher and higher and it is therefore inevitable that it will also translate into an income statement that all production sectors will sooner or later have to pay off. And the world of wine is no exception.
