In recognition of the influence that corporations currently have in society, Viñedos Don Juan starting in 2010 will adopt one environmental initiative per year, incorporating it in its way of working and living.

In 2010, Viñedos Don Juan adopted its current policy of using 100% recycled paper for all its stationary, which includes the labels for its wine bottles.

The paper that is used is Neenah Paper’s (NP) ENVIRONMENT®. Among its attributes and benefits are the following:

1. Carbon Neutral. Neenah Paper is committed to reducing our carbon footprint through investments in energy conservation and renewable energy resources.

Each time a computer or vehicle is turned on greenhouse gases are added to the atmosphere. This is because most of the energy consumed comes from the combustion of fossil fuels. Carbon Neutrality is defined as the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere mentioned in the Kyoto Protocol.

2. Chlorine Free. ENVIRONMENT® paper is made without the use of chlorine, which under normal conditions and in its natural state is a toxic gas with a yellow-greenish color. It is used in the production of plastics and other items of industrial origin.

NP manufacturers its ENVIRONMENT® paper with chemical compounds that have a lower concentration of chlorine, which makes them less toxic.

3. Green-e Certification. ENVIRONMENT® paper from NP is Green-e certified, which is the nation's leading independent certification and verification program for renewable energy and greenhouse gas emission reductions in the retail market.
