The fifth edition of the CSI of the ActionAbility Institute and Capital magazine recognized the winery for its progress in its work on sustainability, especially in the environmental area.


In an affirmation of its commitment to sustainability, Viña Santa Rita was named the second most sustainable winery in Chile—and 30th of all companies at the national level—in the fifth edition of the ActionAbility Institute’s CSI (Corporate Sustainability Index) and Capital magazine.

The report, which began in 2013, reviews the records of more than 100 Chilean companies to identify performance patterns and their reduction of expected hazards in socio-environmental management. It then ranks the 35 top-scoring companies.

This year’s ranking indicated that the country’s principal companies are showing strong signs of progress, particularly in relation to the environment. Furthermore, the pillar that was most highly evaluated overall was innovation.

The report also discussed Corporate Social Responsibility, stating that 100% of the companies analyzed declared working with an NGO or meeting with the community to contribute to improving or solving some controversial aspect.

One of the additions to this year’s index is related to indirect energy—more than 30 companies encouraged the acquisition of non-conventional renewable energy projects.

The ranking considered a range of different measurements, including the carbon footprint, energy footprint, water footprint, biodiversity impact, pollution, use and recycling of natural resources, efficiency variables, and differentiation, among others.
