Sustainability is an essential guide for the development of all activities across the company, from quality to the environment, society and good business practices. Entrecanales Domecq e Hijos is firmly committed to sustainability, which guides each and all of its activities. Its wineries were pioneers in Spain in gaining Carbon Neutral certification and using 100% renewable energy.
Climate Change is one of the company’s greatest concerns. To tackle this complicated global reality, Entrecanales Domecq e Hijos is working on the development of an ambitious regenerative viticulture project. Regenerative techniques maintain the basic principles of sustainability and also are focused on correcting and reversing the negative impact caused to date to the planet by human intervention.
Entrecanales Domecq e Hijos is putting into action an ambitious Biodiversity Plan across its estates and vineyards. This plan is aimed at ensuring the revival of local flora and fauna to alleviate the damage that can be caused by monoculture and other less environmentally-friendly practices. The vineyard management system used by the company is very much focused on actions directed at preserving the environment and using sustainable and non-contaminating cultivation techniques.
SWfCP certification is the first and only certification specific to the wine sector in terms of environmental sustainability. It is aimed at making continuous improvements to sustainability in the wineries, acting across four fundamental pillars: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GEI), water management, waste reduction, energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy.
