Sustainability Code

logo-210x250

The Chilean wine industry has made a firm commitment to protecting the environment and social responsibility and as such has created an extensive Sustainability Program.

Sustainability is far more than a catch phrase. It is also much broader than taking an ecologically sound approach to grape growing. It involves close attention to detail in each of the three components required for a healthy company: the environment, the people, and the economic bottom line. In response to an industry-wide concern for each of these areas, Wines of Chile has taken a proactive role in guiding the nation’s wineries toward sustainable practices and has sponsored the development of a National Sustainability Code that establishes definitions and guidelines for environmental and social responsibility. Wineries that meet with rigorous standards will earn the right to include the official “Accredited Sustainable-Wine of Chile” seal on their labels.
