Yali Officially Certified Carbon Neutral

Leading Chilean producer Viña Ventisquero has been awarded official Carbon Neutral Certification for its Off-Trade Yali range of wines, named after the state protected El Yali Wetland area.

The environmentally conscious company signed a partnership with the Australian Carbon Reduction Institute (CRI) and consultancy group Green Solutions to analyse the impact of its wines on greenhouse gases.  As a result of the findings, Yali increased its CO2 offsetting programme in June and is now a certified Carbon Neutral product.

This is the latest step in a series of initiatives undertaken by Yali to contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable planet.  These include alliances with four international wildfowl and / or wetland conservation organisations, regular monitoring of its carbon footprint and reducing the weight of its bottles by 12%.
