C.V.N.E. has an environmental policy which sets out to:
Reduce energy consumed by encouraging good practices in workers e.g. turning off lights, computers, heaters, printers etc
Reduce the amount of water used at the winery by fixing pressure taps to hoses to limit water and use it more efficiently
Reduce natural gas consumption by rationing the amount used
Viña Real has its own sewage treatment plant. All of their sewage is purified before it enters into the municipal purification plant. Waste product from the wine making is either recycled in the winery or sold.
Water that has to contain chemical product, used to clean the winery, is stored separately from normal water and leaves the winery separately from normal waste water.
In the winery and offices all plastics, cardboard and glass etc. are recycled.
Barrels used to age wine can only be used by C.V.N.E. for 10 years, after this they sell them on to garden centres to be used as planters or to restaurants to be used as tables.
