International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA)

By Charlotte Owen-Burge | June 30, 2021

International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA) is a non-profit collaborative working group of environmentally committed wineries taking a science-based approach to reducing carbon emissions across the wine industry. Their goal is to share best practices that mitigate climate change impacts in vineyard and winery operations so that we can act collectively to decarbonize the global wine industry—applying direct solutions that avoid purchasing carbon offset credits.

IWCA creates a collaborative community of like-minded businesses that encourages the knowledge sharing and exchange of best practices for mitigating climate impacts in vineyard and winery operations. IWCA carefully tracks GHG emissions of its members and publishes them every year on the IWCA Annual Report as a proof of commitment and transparency.

Ahead of COP27, IWCA has 14 members.

The more wineries that participate in IWCA, the louder their voice will be to raise awareness on climate change and to urge immediate, global action. To join, fill out this contact form.

“Being a Partner of the Race to Zero is a point of difference for us in making wine synonymous with climate action. IWCA has loved being involved because it has opened our eyes to a world of sectors and actors, all striving to halve emissions by 2030” – ICWA.
