The aim of certification is to minimize the pressure of viticulture practices on the environment (air, climate, water, soil, biodiversity, landscapes).
Over 120 points are covered by the Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne frame of reference introduced by the Comité Champagne and recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture in May 2015. Since 2015, over 15% of the Champagne vineyard has already been certified.
