What is the WfCP Certificate?
Wineries for Climate Protection (WfCP) is the first and only specific certification of environmental sustainability for the wine sector and aims to become the international benchmark in winemaking and the environment, seeking out solutions and best practices for wineries.
Developed by the Spanish Wine Federation (Federación Española del Vino - FEV), the WtCP certification system establishes the environmental criteria sustainable wineries must meet. Wineries that meet said criteria may request certification from authorised bodies and, if they receive a favourable evaluation based on the established criteria, they will get the 'Wineries for Climate Protection' certificate accrediting them as an environmentally sustainable winery.
WfCP certification is geared towards ongoing improvement and sustainability in wineries, based on four key areas: reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG), water management, waste reduction and energy efficiency and renewable energy.
