IWCA is a membership-driven effort, open to any winery that views climate change as a serious threat and is committed to reducing their own emissions. Our member wineries—big and small, from different parts of the globe—are all committed to the same values: reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, improving their land stewardship, protecting biodiversity, and being socially-responsible, locally-engaged businesses.
IWCA membership is multi-tiered and rigorously vetted to ensure that applicant members and members are held accountable to their commitments and demonstrate tangible progress towards carbon neutrality by 2050.

Applicant wineries are interested in becoming an IWCA member but have not yet fulfilled the greenhouse gas emissions inventory requirement.
Members at the silver level commit to becoming net zero by 2050 across Scopes 1-3 and have completed a minimum baseline third-party-verified greenhouse gas emissions inventory.
In addition to fulfilling Silver-level requirements, Gold-level members have winemaking operations powered by at least 20% onsite renewable energy and demonstrate a consistent reduction of emissions.
