The ISO 14067 Carbon Footprint Certification enables worldwide comparison of carbon footprint data.   It has been developed to increase transparency in the quantification and reporting of CO2 emissions over the entire lifecycle of products and services:  from production to recycling or disposal of waste. Carbon footprint assessment can inform efficient energy practices and reveal those processes leading to pollution.

“Our grapes, – continues Federico Lombardo di Monte Iato – grow in some of the areas most suited to viticulture in Sicily, where there is a great biodiversity to be safeguarded and enhanced. We are the custodians of an authentic terroir, so our goal is to give life to wines capable of representing these unique terroirs in the world through a virtuous path that, from the vineyard to the bottle, preserves this great natural heritage.”
