Where it all STARTED
Porto Protocol is a key outcome of the Climate Change Leadership – Solutions for the Wine Industry conferences, an undertaking by all participants to adopt and promote the principles and measures established at the summits, by signing the Letter of Principles for The Porto Protocol.
Who we ARE
We are a global movement sharing practical knowledge to empower the wine industry to take action to mitigate climate change and promote sustainability.
Founded by Taylor’s Port, we were 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.
We act as an open and dynamic platform of solutions and resources and a network of like-minded companies, with more than 250 members, spread across 5 continents, 20 countries, and the entire wine value chain.
We embrace this challenge with creativity and a deep sense of purpose. With a focus on collaboration and innovation, we seek to trigger action and create a community of changemakers who are committed to making a positive impact on the planet.
Leader of The Porto Protocol & CEO of the Fladgate Partnership
The Porto Protocol is run by a skilled, experienced and passionate core team. These change makers are supported by a group of industry pioneers and experts from all over the world and the wine value chain, driven by the common purpose of catalyzing climate action in the wine world.

What we DO
Packaging is the element that contributes to the carbon footprint of wine, and the way through which wine production impacts environment the most.
Saving every DROP
Water is a growingly scarce resource of which wine is dependent and its producers N1 concern independently of their wine region.
Biodiversity one of the planet boundaries reaching a tipping point and viticulture contributes to one of its weaknesses, monoculture.
Seeding the FUTURE
“Where do I start?” is a question companies ask themselves when starting a sustainability strategy, and certainly the most difficult to answer.
