Reducing CO2 emissions with good agronomic practices

The solution to CO2 emissions is right under our feet: soil carbon storage provided by agriculture is a very useful tool for the climate neutrality the EU has committed to achieve by 2050.

The project aims to measure, to monitor and to report GHG emissions, to obtain a carbon neutral site. The carbon credits, certified by a certified body according to UNI EN ISO 14064-2 and -3 standards and the ICIM 0451CS SCPE GHG scheme, are obtained by sustainable agronomic practices carried out by the Vitevis agronomic team and with the cooperation of the vinegrowers members.
