The Burgundy Wine Interprofessional Bureau (BIVB) called on the Dijon start-up “Wine Pilot” to launch a platform which allows the carbon footprint of wine estates to be carried out and which helps them find solutions to improve their environmental impact. .

Today, more than 30% of Burgundy producers have an environmental label. “This is a sign that the impact of wine production on the environment is a major issue for agriculture” explains Laurent Delaunay, the co-president of the BIVB, the Interprofessional Burgundy Wine Bureau. Since April, the interprofessional organization has called on a Dijon start-up to launch “Wine Pilot by Food Pilot”, software that allows wineries to carry out their carbon footprint because Burgundy wines have made a commitment, says Laurent Delaunay, “to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030”.

Lighter bottles and reduced packaging

To reduce their environmental impact while continuing to produce great wines, the inter-profession has already started work on the weight of bottles and the reduction of packaging such as boxes. Because lighter bottles and fewer boxes cost transport trucks less fuel. There is also a reflection “on local transport” says Laurent Delaunay “for the transport of wine bottles from the vat rooms to the department’s customers”.

Convince and train producers

Laurent Delaunay explains that one of the challenges of tomorrow is to continue to make great Burgundy wines in lighter bottles and by reducing packaging. Champagne has already been thinking about this for several years and the Burgundians are also getting into it. The BIVB’s objective in the years to come is therefore to achieve carbon neutrality in 2035.
