Sense and sustainability: How wine producers are protecting the environment

Valentina Lira, sustainability manager, Concha y Toro

“In 2012, Concha y Toro developed a sustainability strategy that has six pillars: supply chain, product, clients, people, society and environment. The company has set out to achieve a 100% supply of electricity based on renewable energy by 2020. Last year, 73% of our supply was renewable energy. In 2018 the winery launched the Concha y Toro factory initiative to enhance entrepreneurship.

This aims to transform us into a start-ups business accelerator, which allows different entrepreneurs to be brought closer to the company, giving them the possibility to work together in the co-creation of solutions for Concha y Toro and gain experience.

We believe we have made progress, but the journey is still full of challenges that the company must tackle to transform itself into a world-class business known for its sustainable practices. That is our greatest aim.”
