Coal Pit Joins Porto Protocol
Following our recent Native Planting session, we received word of our acceptance into the Porto Protocol Foundation—a milestone Anika has been working towards since our organic certification in May.
Founded by Taylor’s Port, the foundation was born out of the belief that, ‘if we work together, share our successes and experiences, we can achieve systemic change and create a ripple effect that extends far beyond the wine industry.’
To become a member, one must submit solutions and best practices for tackling climate action, a process subject to approval by a panel of scientists from around the world. Coal Pit’s submission outlined our transition to lighter-weight glass, updated sustainable packaging, and our reforestation plan for our non-viticulture land on-site—brought to life from our native planting sessions.
With over 250 Porto Protocol members across 20 countries, we are honoured to be only the second New Zealand winery to join, and we hope to inspire others in our community to follow suit. At the core of the foundation is the principle of collaboration, and we are committed to sharing our knowledge and fostering a collective commitment to the evolution of generational sustainability.
