The International Organisation for Vine & Wine (OIV) has agreed a universal method for calculating carbon dioxide emissions in the wine industry.

Members of the OIV have agreed to a Greenhouse Gas Accounting Protocol, that is set to enable better tracking of emissions. It will also make it easier to compare emissions data from different corners of the world wine industry.

"The wine sector is one of the first trade sectors worldwide to develop such a system," said the policy director of the UK-based Wine & Spirit Trade Association (WSTA), John Corbet-Milward, today (7 November).

"The increasing focus of policy makers on the impact of greenhouse gasses means it is vital we are able to accurately calculate the contribution the wine sector makes."

The WSTA has been prominent in coordinating an agreement at OIV level.
