CLIMATE ACTION & REGENERATIVE FARMING

EVENT SPONSOR: PORTO PROTOCOL AND IWCA

The Porto Protocol Foundation is an international non-profit institution, founded by Taylor’s Fladgate Port, with hundreds of other members committed to make a greater contribution to mitigate climate change.

Born in the wine industry and spread across the whole value chain, they strive to be a catalyst of climate action. Their belief is that, if we share our successes and experiences, our response to climate change will be more effective.

International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA) is a collaborative working group of environmentally committed wineries taking a science-based approach to reducing carbon emissions across the wine industry.

Our goal is to share best practices that mitigate climate change impacts in vineyard and winery operations so that we can act collectively to decarbonize the global wine industry—applying direct solutions that avoid purchasing carbon offset credits.

MENTORSHIP IN ACTION:
REGENERATIVE CARBON FARMING & BUILDING SOIL HEALTH

Regeneration is becoming something of a buzzword. Does it really mean anything? In fact, it does – building soil health, water and nutrient retention, biodiversity, and overall vineyard resilience, while also storing, or sequestering, more carbon in the soil. Through regenerative carbon farming growers can play a proactive role in climate change mitigation. Jim Duane and Seavey Vineyard have been implementing a number of carbon farming practices for several years, including application of compost and biochar, and using conservation tillage. During this workshop, join Jim as he begins working with Domaine Chandon to expand their regenerative practices, and shares their lessons learned.

WORKSHOP: GHG INVENTORIES & HOW TO TACKLE SCOPE 3

The most challenging aspect of a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory is collecting the “Scope 3” data – this includes purchasing, distribution, employee commute, and business travel. This can also be the most impactful part of the inventory because it typically accounts for the majority of vineyard and winery emissions. Martin Reyes MW and Molly Sheppard have led year-over-year inventories at Spottswoode Winery and will share the data collection process, and, perhaps more importantly, how they ultimately put the inventory results in context to help guide change. Kayalin Akens-Irby from Planet FWD will speak about how they assist brands in completing emissions inventories and achieving Carbon Neutral status, and Fintan Du Fresne, General Manager & Winemaker, Chamisal Vineyards, will speak about leading the inventory process for Crimson Wine Group.

Originally from the southern end of New Zealand’s North Island, Fin graduated from Victoria University of Wellington at the age of twenty with a degree in geology. Most graduates of the program headed straight to work on an oil rig, but Fin was not interested in that life. He was interested in learning more about and exploring the relationship between land and how it affected grape growing, essentially the concept of how geology affected terroir, so he changed tracks and obtained a post-graduate degree in Viticulture and Enology at Lincoln University in Canterbury.

EXPERT PANEL:
PROACTIVE CLIMATE ACTION LEADERSHIP & THE FUTURE OF FINANCE

In 2021, Napa Green became the first sustainable winegrowing certification to redevelop their Vineyard standards to focus on climate action, regenerative agriculture, and social equity, diversity, and inclusion, with the aim to help growers become carbon neutral within six years, and climate positive within nine years. Through the Porto Protocol, members worldwide commit to climate action and share solutions to collaboratively tackle climate change. And members of International Wineries for Climate Action baseline and track their GHG emissions and create roadmaps to achieve Net Zero emissions, including onsite renewable energy. In March 2022, the SEC proposed rules that will in short order require all publicly-trade businesses to disclose annual emissions and climate-related risks to investors, and soon thereafter any business seeking financial investment will need to show sustainability metrics and climate action. This panel will explore how these organizations can individually and collectively accelerate wine industry climate action leadership, and help their members proactively prepare for a new market reality.

APCOR 100% Natural Cork | Greg Whisenant

APCOR is the employers’ association of the cork sector that represents, promotes, divulges and carries out research in the Portuguese cork industry. Cork stoppers are a natural, recyclable and reusable product. Cork is an indelible factor of social and economic development for the countries of the Western Mediterranean. It combines a centuries-old tradition with the most modern practices of an industry of the future, and one that leads the way in sustainability. The extraction of cork is the most well-paid agricultural work in the world, due to the expertise and care that it requires. Cork helps to ensure the sustainability of the montados, contributing to a balanced relationship with nature and the maintenance of the ecosystems that are linked to it. The montados play an essential role in water regulation, and in protecting the soil and carbon sequestration. The cork industry therefore provides a guarantee of a more promising future due to the environmental, economic and social sustainability that it advocates.

Nori Carbon Removal Marketplace | Rebekah Carlson

Nori believes to avoid climate catastrophe, we need to radically reduce our carbon emissions and remove the excess from our atmosphere. The problem is, our current economic system makes it easier and more profitable to emit carbon than to avoid doing so. Maintaining this status quo doesn’t just guarantee climate change, it also prevents businesses doing what they’re best at to be part of the solution. It shouldn’t be this way.

Instead, we need a platform that makes it easy to fund carbon removal. A platform that allows businesses to help repair our planet by removing any carbon emissions they can’t yet avoid creating. An open platform that everyone can invest in with confidence, no matter how big or small their contribution. A platform that allows individuals, businesses, and nature to thrive, while creating a legacy we can be proud of.

Pacific Biochar | Josiah Hunt

Pacific Biochar is on a Mission to Put Carbon Safely Back in the Ground and Leave a Legacy of Fertile Soil.

They modify biomass power plants for biochar production, thus leveraging existing infrastructure, trained staff, and hard earned utility and procurement contracts. This lets them get to significant production volume fast and with low cap ex. They’re initially focused on utilization of forest biomass from high fire hazard areas in California, thus helping mitigate catastrophic wildfire in our feedstock sourcing. The high quality biochar they make is then distributed primarily in ag, and commonly in collaboration with compost yards. This gets them efficiency in shared equipment, trucking, and additional co-benefits; when biochar is used in composting it not only makes a great combined product but ends up dropping GHG emissions from compost significantly. After years in the field, they’ve gained fruitful relations with some of California’s largest ag companies.

Why Electric Tractors?

Solectrac Electric Tractors offer many advantages compared to traditional diesel tractors.

  • Fuel Cost Savings: Electricity is a fraction of the cost of diesel fuel.
  • No Emissions: Our electric tractors do not produce exhaust; this is a great health benefit for farmworkers, livestock, and the environment and makes working in enclosed spaces possible.
  • Noise Reduction: Electric tractors are significantly quieter than diesel tractors of similar size and power, reducing hearing damage, as well as increasing the ability to communicate.
  • Less Maintenance: Electric motors only have one moving part, compared to a diesel engine that has hundreds. There is no engine oil to replace, oil filters to change, or engine tune-ups to schedule.
  • Renewably Charged: With a solar array, our tractors can be recharged from the sun, or from another renewable energy source, offering owners energy independence from the price volatility of fossil fuels.
