The Torres & Earth environmental program grew out of an ambitious goal: the reduction of CO2 emissions by 30% per bottle between 2008 and 2020.
Thanks to the actions undertaken as part of the Torres & Earth program, Bodegas Torres has reduced its own carbon emissions by 40% (scope 1 and 2) in 2016 as compared to 2008. After adding the value chain emissions generated by suppliers (scope 3), the total reduction of CO2 per bottle comes to 15.6% (verified by Lloyd's Register).
Every year, Bodegas Torres reinvests 11% of the profits into environment and climate change - related projects, focusing on energy efficiency, use of renewable energy and eco-efficient transport, and others. In 2017, the accumulated investment since the beginning of the program will exceed 12 million euros.
The carbon footprint refers to the total amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) associated with the various phases of a product's life cycle, measured in equivalent units of carbon dioxide (CO2). The accumulation of these gases in the atmosphere is a consequence of industrialization and responsible for climate change.
Calculating the impact of a commercial activity on the atmosphere and environment takes into account emissions generated by the company's own operations, including direct emissions (categorized as scope 1) and indirect emissions from electricity consumption (scope 2), as well as value chain emissions generated by suppliers (raw materials, packaging materials, distribution), which fall under scope 3 and are in turn itemized as upstream/downstream.
