Sustainability is important to us. We make a contribution to climate protection for all emissions caused by our operations and thus support recognized and effective climate protection projects. This also applies to the greenhouse gas emissions of all products purchased by our private customers.

An important part of the Vergani culture is defined by thinking in terms of generations. As a family business, we only want to be successful if we do not do so at the expense of resources, which are the foundation of our work.

Wine is a natural product that is exposed to climate change. The rise in temperature and fluctuations in the weather pose immense challenges for our producers.

Even if Vergani is only a small piece of the puzzle in this topic, as a pioneer in the wine trade we would still like to show our colors. As a company, as a family, as people.

Vergani active in climate protection from producer to consumer

The balance takes into account all greenhouse gases produced from the work of the producer in the vineyard to the delivery of your order to your home, for which we support climate protection projects that reduce and avoid emissions. So you can enjoy wines, grappas, olive oils, simply all Vergani products sustainably.


Who is our partner myclimate?

myclimate is a non-profit foundation that was established in 2002. The international initiative with Swiss roots is one of the world's quality leaders in voluntary climate protection measures. Since its foundation, around 200 different climate protection projects have been pursued in over 46 different countries. Emissions are reduced locally by replacing fossil energy sources with renewable energies, implementing local reforestation measures with small farmers and implementing energy-efficient technologies.


Which projects does Vergani support?

Vergani supports various projects in developing and emerging countries. The projects meet the highest standards, such as the Gold Standard in the energy sector or Plan Vivo or VCS in the land use sector, and contribute to the UN's SDGs. In this way, myclimate projects not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also contribute to social, ecological and economic development in the region.

For example, we contribute to the "Biogas for rural households in India" project, which produces organic fertilizer as a by-product for a better harvest. Soil quality is also of fundamental importance for a good harvest in viticulture. Find out more about the project here.

Clean drinking water for schools in Uganda

"Clean drinking water for schools through filter systems in Uganda" is another climate protection project that is supported with our contribution. New technologies for drinking water purification reduce the consumption of non-renewable firewood and charcoal, reduce CO₂ emissions and at the same time have a positive impact on the living conditions and health of thousands of people.

What is Vergani doing to reduce its footprint?

Vergani's defined goal is to emit as few greenhouse gases as possible. For this reason, the reduction of CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases in operations comes before climate protection financing. myclimate supports us as a competent and credible partner and we look forward to future projects.

What initiatives we have already implemented:

  • Our new large warehouse has been fitted with solar panels. This allows us to generate more electricity than we need, which we can feed back into the community.
  • Where possible, we try to do without plastic. For example, we now use 100% recyclable paper bags. These are made of vegetable fibres and are therefore environmentally friendly and easily degradable.
  • Our shipping boxes are made from 100% recycled material. Three quarters of them are made from recycled paper. The remaining raw material is fibre obtained from natural sustainable forestry. Even the glue made from corn and wheat starch is biodegradable.
  • The inside of the shipping boxes are corrugated cardboard boxes. The used corrugated cardboard packaging serves the paper mills again as raw material for paper production.
  • Natural corks can be handed in at our Enoteca.
  • We use mineral oil-free printing inks for printed matter.
  • Since 2020, we have greatly expanded our range of organic and Demeter-certified wines with the Vergani Linea Verde. Even if it does not directly imply that sustainable vinification results in a lower greenhouse gas footprint, both approaches focus on the protection of nature and resources. This discourse is important to us and we want to continue it in the future.


"We are delighted that Vergani has decided to work with myclimate to provide climate protection financing for greenhouse gas emissions. They are thus taking on a pioneering role in the wine trade."
