Champagne emissions

Champagne has become the first region in France to announce a clear breakdown of its carbon dioxide emissions, and set out strategies for reducing them (see news article here). Speaking at the official launch of the Bordeaux Carbon Initiative this week, representatives from the Champagne region revealed the results of their own carbon study, first undertaken in 2003.

Speaking at the official launch of the Bordeaux Carbon Initiative this week, representatives from the Champagne region revealed the results of their own carbon study, first undertaken in 2003. The Champagne region produces around 200,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. This works out at approximately 700g per bottle. You could, alternatively, have four bars of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk for the same C-price.
