Bodegas Familiares Matarromera has received four AENOR certificates endorsing the company's commitment with the environment, sustainability and quality. These were presented at the winery's headquarters, Bodega Emina Ribera. This is the first time the winery has obtained certificates of
Environmental Management in accordance with
UNE-EN ISO 14001Standard
Carbon Footprint UNE-EN ISO 14064 under the WfCP framework (Wineries for Climate Protection), drawn up by the Spanish Wine Federation (Federación Española del Vino - FEV); making the company the first winery in the Castilla y León region to obtain the WfCP certificate with AENOR.
Matarromera has also renewed its certificate of
Gestión de la Calidad UNE-EN ISO 9001, obtained in 2009, which is held by almost all installations owned by Bodegas Familiares Matarromera.
These endorsements are added to others already held by Matarromera, such as the certificate of
R&D&I Projects which enables companies to legally secure Corporate Tax deductions for R&D&i.
In 2010 Matarromera became the first Spanish company to obtain the AENOR Product Carbon Footprint certificate for its three wines (Emina Verdejo, Emina Crianza and Matarromera Crianza). The difference between this environmental certificate and the Carbon Footprint certificate (UNE-EN ISO 14064) is that the former measures greenhouse gases associated with the product's life cycle (in this case the wine), whilst the latter includes the emissions made as a result of the company's activities.
