The B Corporation authentication was granted to Concha y Toro in May 2021 after two and a half years of rigorous evaluation.


With every bottle of Marques de Casa Concha, Concha y Toro seeks to generate a positive impact and contribute to a sustainable future, so it was very pleased to take another step in that direction by receiving its B Corp Certication in May 2021.


After more than two years of rigorous evaluation by the Sistema B organization, the winery became the largest wine company to join this global movement that brings together nearly 4,000 companies around the world that work to generate systemic change and build an equitable, inclusive, and regenerative economic model for people and the planet.


The B Corp Certication recognizes companies that meet high standards of environmental management, governance, and social performance.


“This certication is a firm step in our business commitment to environmental, social, and corporate governance issues, which are a fundamental part of our growth pillars. Being part of this global movement means embarking upon a path of constant improvement, seeking to ensure that our business generate a positive impact and makes a contribution to global challenges,” said Eduardo Guilisasti, general manager of Viña Concha y Toro.


Sustainability is one of Viña Concha y Toro‘s central pillars, which is why it put a Sustainability Strategy in place in 2011 to serve as a roadmap on this path that includes Marques de Casa Concha. The advances have been specified in six areas: customers, products, people, society, supply chain, and environment.


Over the past decade, the winery has placed special focus on two major global challenges, water and climate change. With respect to the former, the company has incorporated technology and drip irrigation systems in 100% of its operations to ensure responsible water use. It was also the first winery in the world to start measuring its water footprint 10 years ago to guide its actions toward reducing its water footprint, which is now 50% lower than the average of the global wine industry.


In terms of climate change, the company incorporated goals for reducing its emissions based on climate science in 2018 with the aim of stopping the planet’s temperature from rising more than 1.5°C, which is in line with international initiatives. Advances in the decarbonization of its energy matrix and the implementation of nature-based solutions have played a key role in these reductions. e company’s goal is to reduce its emissions by 55% by 2030.


“Being part of the B Corp community is the result of a two-and-a-half-year process of much internal collaboration and enthusiasm for the challenge of evaluating all of our global operations. It has been a deep learning process, and we are incorporating what we have learned into our Positive Impact Strategy, which we use to guide our future actions,” emphasized Valentina Lira, manager of Sustainable Development at Viña Concha y Toro.
