Porto Protocol is a key outcome of the Climate Change Leadership – Solutions for the Wine Industry conferences, an undertaking by all participants to adopt and promote the principles and measures established at the summits, by signing the Letter of Principles for The Porto Protocol.

At the city of Porto, a natural stage for this commitment. A dynamic and entrepreneurial city which values innovation and proactive leadership but also respects and protects its heritage. Porto is one of the world’s great Wine capitals and the hub of some of Europe’s most diverse vineyard regions, including some that are at great risk from climate change.

The Porto Protocol Foundation is an international non-profit institution, founded by Taylor Fladgate Port, with hundreds of other members committed to make a greater contribution to mitigate climate change. Born in the wine industry and spread across the whole value chain, we strive to be a catalyst of climate action. Their belief is that, if they share their successes and experiences, their response to climate change will be more effective. They are a community of practice, an open platform, a dynamic database of resources and workable solutions, a place of inspiration for change and collaborative sharing. Porto Protocol has been awarded with the prize for best Green Initiative by the The Drinks Magazine Green Awards 2020.
