Sense and sustainability: How wine producers are protecting the environment

Bárbara Wolff, chief corporate affairs officer, VSPT Wine Group

“Sustainability is a strategic priority for VSPT. In the past decade, our initiatives have been based on water management and balanced agricultural practices.

This includes a large-scale biodiversity programme at Viña Tarapacá at our Rosario estate in the Maipo Valley. Carbon-footprint management has also been a priority, mainly through the generation of renewable energy and energy-efficiency projects. We have taken up the challenge of producing wine using 100%- renewable energy by 2021.

To achieve this, we are employing a mixture of clean energies, including bioenergy from our biogas plant at Viña San Pedro, as well as two important solar energy projects. We hope to continue growing along this path to help keep our magnificent wine industry running in a healthy, friendly, eco-conscious way.”
