Sustainability solutions for the wine industry were presented at the international Climate Change Leadership Summit that focused on different environmental goals. Several presentations highlighted the importance of establishing a baseline and setting specific goals to measure the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Eco-friendly packaging was one of the topics discussed as heavy 750-millilter glass wine bottles produce a significant amount of GHG emissions. Industry professionals looking to make a positive impact will be switching to lighter glass as a way to reduce their carbon footprint.
