Champagne and climate change
Lighter bottles that limit the impact of CO2 emissions by 20%, a programme of varietal innovation to select varieties that are more resistant to climatic stress, 90% of the waste recycled and recovered: these are just some of the environmental protection actions implemented in the last 15 years by Champagne.
Rules for sustainable viticulture
The 120-point specification on sustainable wine growing in Champagne drawn up by the Comité has been recognised by the French Ministry of Agriculture and is now adopted on 15% of the areas under vines. Overall, 20% of the surface of the denomination now holds an environmental certification.
