The emergence of global markets and the growing trend for businesses to be environmentally aware have strengthened our commitment to protecting the environment. This commitment was officially recognised in 2003 when Caviro adopted the model established by UNI EN ISO 14001:2004. Following this development, the sites at Faenza and Forli were certified in accordance to the outlined structure.
Caviro policy is to:
- Recycle in order to reduce the consumption of non-renewable energy and unnecessary waste;
- Reduce water consumption;
- Improve the environmental performance of the business and ensure ongoing development of environmental practices;
- Foster a sense of responsibility for the environment with staff, partners, suppliers and clients through training, encouragement and incentives.
Integrated Cycle and Energy Self-Sufficiency
From vineyards to energy self-sufficiency: the Caviro Group is committed to the environment.
The vineyards are not solely used to make wine from grapes – the by-products of the winemaking process (the must, the lees and the marc) are used to make sugars and grape juices, alcohol, calcium tartrate, tartaric acid and compost used for agricultural purposes – ultimately, ENERGY.
Every year Caviro transforms over 280.000 tons of by-products – a weight comparable with the 275.000 tons of the Empire State Building in New York. The purification and combustion of the waste from the food product line allows for the total energy self-sufficiency of the Caviro facilities.
The Caviro Group is strongly committed to working towards the goals outlined by the Kyoto Protocol. We use renewable sources instead of conventional resources to generate power.
In addition, organic matter generated by the winemaking process is returned to the land. This integrated cycle is extremely valuable, and achieves almost ZERO IMPACT on the environment.
