Diam Bouchage sponsors the VIVA Sustainable Wine project (Project for the Assessment of the Environmental Impact of Wine-Growing) promoted by the Department for the Environment.
Established in 2011 by the Department for the Environment, this national project aims to measure the performance of the soil-vine-wine chain in terms of sustainable development through the calculation of water and carbon footprints.
Participating in this project:
The most respected names in the Italian wine industry :
F.lli Gancia & Co, Masi Agricola, Marchesi Antinori, Mastroberardino, Michele Chiarlo, Castello Montevibiano Vecchio, Planeta, Tasca d'Almerita e Venica&Venica
Universities and research organisations:
Industry members aim to use the results of this 3-year project to make Italian wine “a symbol of sustainable development in Italy and throughout the world”.
For the official presentation of the project, on the occasion of Vinitaly 2013, the Department for the Environment has chosen to make an impression with an impressive structure designed by ARCHEA ASSOCIATA and created by Francesco Motolese.
This cubical artwork, on which different bottle shapes have been represented, has a coating composed entirely of DIAM cork closures.
Cork is a natural material; noble, eco-sustainable and easily transformable. Its use helps conserve the Mediterranean ecosystem, not only through the protection of the cork oak forests but also by the resulting preservation of the economic and cultural heritage.
DIAM Bouchage : A carbon footprint that is constantly improving.
Since its creation, DIAM Bouchage has engaged in the continuous improvement of its energy consumption in order to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions in the near term and during the life-cycle of the closures. Between 2006 and 2010, the energy consumption of DIAM corks (for still wines) and Mytik DIAM (for sparkling wines) was reduced by 15% and 22% respectively.
