One of IWCA’s goals is to develop and share rigorous methodologies to measure greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) footprints. With detailed inventories, wineries can identify their emissions hotspots and implement targeted strategies, then track their progress in achieving emissions reductions over time.
To encourage widespread, high-standard, consistent GHG measurements, IWCA has worked on developing a GHG calculator. Our methodology, which is region-specific, helps wineries account for annual GHG emissions across Scopes 1, 2, and 3.

IWCA GHG EMISSIONS CALCULATORS
We have developed three GHG emissions calculators for wineries based in Australia, New Zealand, and the US, using region-specific emissions factors. They are aligned with World Resources Institute (WRI) GHG Protocols and ISO-14064 standards and cover Scopes 1, 2, and 3.
