OUR COMMITMENT TO REDUCING WATER CONSUMPTION
In keeping with our clear vocation as a company committed to the environment, Reserva de la Tierra has drawn up a plan to save water. That’s to say, reducing water consumption in the production of wine at its main facilities.
According to the United Nations, water – in addition to being a rights issue – is at the core of sustainable development and is critical for socio-economic development, energy and food production, healthy ecosystems and for human survival itself. Water is also at the heart of adaptation to climate change, serving as the crucial link between society and the environment.
According to the UN, 2.1 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services. Water scarcity already affects 4 out of 10 people (WHO).
One of the first steps to reverse this situation is for industries to take action.
As such, at Reserva de la Tierra we have drawn up the “Committed to the Environment” action plan, which includes initiatives aimed at reducing our environmental impact.
RESULTS ACHIEVED: 84% of reducing water consumption
After consolidating some initiatives to look after our planet, such as implementing ISO 14001 and changing to FSC-certified suppliers, Reserva de la Tierra is going one step further.
In the bottling process at our main winery, up to 170 million of liters of water used to be used each year. After a long adaptation period for the five bottling lines, we can now confirm that water consumption has been reduced by 84%.
More specifically, the rinser system which previously used water has now been changed to use compressed air. In this way, our bottling process is more eco-friendly, without compromising the quality of our production processes.
At Reserva de la Tierra, we work with a vision of the future which is linked to preserving our origins, our earth and our vines. That is why with this new measure we will not have completed our “Committed to the Environment” initiatives; we will continue implementing new initiatives to preserve our planet.
