Committed to Sustainability
Palo Alto leads various initiatives in the field of Sustainability, in order to reduce the impact of its activity and make a real contribution to its social and natural environment.
We are part of the global community of B Corporations, committing ourselves to generate a positive impact for people, the community and the planet.
We preserve 1,397 hectares of native sclerophyllous forest in the Maule Valley, and 546 of them with FSC certification.
We convert organic waste coming from our winemaking process into compost, strengthening the soil of our vineyards.
We treat the water used in the winemaking process to restore it cleanly to natural watercourses. Our water footprint is 50% lower than the industry average, and since 2020 we have reduced our water consumption by 21%.
We use environmentally friendly supplies, such as labels made from 100% recycled material, and eco-glass bottles that are 14% lighter than a common bottle.
Understanding our consumers’ preference for more conscious products, we have worked to achieve the V-Label seal for our premium red blends, an internationally recognized certification that confirms that our wines are made from 100% vegetable products.
We are a
Since 2021 we have joined the global community of more than four thousand companies that are part of B Corps, and that work to generate a positive impact, aiming to build an equitable, inclusive and regenerative economic model for people, the community and the planet.
Protecting biodiversity in the Maule Valley
Continuing with our efforts to conserve the native sclerophyllous forest, Palo Alto leads the development of a Native Park at the José Miguel Carrera School, VII Region of Chile. This 1000 square meter park allows students and parents to learn more about the richness, conservation and care that planted native species must have.
The plants used for the restoration of the sector were donated by the National Forestry Corporation (CONAF), with whom Palo Alto decided to form a strategic partnership in order to work alongside prioritizing forest fire prevention and native forest preservation.
We certify our
forests under FSC
Palo Alto is part of the first non-forestry company globally to certify its forest assets under FSC certification for conservation purposes, which makes it a pioneer in the world, thus demonstrating its commitment to the conservation of its native forest and the preservation of its biodiversity.
Palo Alto today has 1,397 hectares of native sclerophyllous forest in the Maule Valley, and 546 of them are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified (FSC ® - C154029). This certification commits us to carry out a series of actions that seek to conserve, protect and regenerate this surface together with its flora and fauna.
