Hi friends,

Today we are going to write about a very interesting topic from an environmental point of view, this is carbon footprint.

This is a non official stamp which isn’t compulsory through different entities and by using certain homologated methods. It’s done by calculating a company’s or products CO2 emissions due to the use of burning fossils fuels, electricity, materials…. in our case the calculation is done  per bottle.

 

Once the calculation is done you have to commit to reduce in the measure you can what you can; for example encouraging employees to use public transport, use renewable energies, hybrid vehicles..

Once you cannot reduce anymore your CO2 emissions you compensate this by financing tree planning projects to balance the atmosphere’s CO2.

In the companies this is standard but it’s not the case for the bodegas, which is a bit more complicated since we have to consider the following points which aren’t very clear:

1. The vine’s harvest gives out CO2; therefore, to produce grape has a questioning balance? ; taking into account the tractor’s emissions during the treatments and the harvesting, I do not know if finally this balance is positive or not.

2. It is clear that the fermentation process gives out important CO2 emissions during the transformation of the sugar to alcohol.

3. In the use of oak barrels to age the balance is positive since previously the CO2 has already been calculated although not without an incredible effort.

Nowadays there is a bodega Grupo Matarromera, which has calculated the carbon footprint for certain wines such as Emina Verdejo, Emina Crianza and Matarromera Crianza. Also, other companies directly related to the wine world such as Tonelería Intona, have also calculated the carbon footprint for its barrels.

I think it is a good start that some companies are beginning to worry about the greenhouse effects and the carbon footprint; amongst all we have to take care of our Earth.
