QUEZADA, Rafael; HSIEH, Tailin  y  VALDERRAMA, José O. Determination of the Carbon Footprint using the Method Composed of Financial Accounts (MC3) for a Wine Company in Chile. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.4, pp.03-14. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642013000400002.

The carbon footprint (CF) in a winery company is determined using the Method Composed of Financial Accounts (MC3), considered to be one of the simplest procedures to be implemented in a company. Aspects related to the adoption of the CF concept by the company, as a clear element to determine how environmentally friendly has been the product manufacture, are discussed. Nowadays, and in the near future, having an appropriate determination of the CF is an important factor of competitiveness, especially in the international market that will inevitably impose restrictions based on sustainable production. The MC3 method was applied to the company Viña Modelo and the CF found was 2 tons of CO2 per bottle of wine. This result is lower than values reported in the literature for other companies around the world, aspect that is also analyzed.

Palabras clave : carbon footprints; MC3 method; wineries; greenhouse gases; global warming.
