Calculating Herència Altés’ carbon footprint enabled the winery becoming a member of the IWCA, such achievement resulting in the definition of a very clear roadmap known as the “Race to Zero.” This commitment entails calculating emissions every two years and the commitment to reduce them annually. With this, the company aims to position itself as a benchmark on the path towards sustainability in the wine industry and believes that the market will increasingly seek products and producers targeted towards Net Zero ―that is to say, cutting greenhouse gas emissions to zero. This will provide Herència Altés with a competitive advantage. Also, the implemented investments and actions help them reduce expenses too.
More information on this project can be found in this piece of news and in the latest carbon footprint calculation; also, in an interview with Inèdit.
