Remy Cointreau (Paris: RCO) has a centuries-old history working to preserve and pass on the areas that are the cradles of its extraordinary wines and spirits. From vines to orange groves and from cereals to sugarcane, the group has long ago committed to earning certification for their regions in their pursuit of responsible and sustainable farming.

Faced with the reality of climate change, the group now has a dual responsibility to not only protect its territories but to promote them as “solutions”. It must ensure that its living soil plays its full role in combating global warming by cultivating its biodiversity and maximizing its potential for carbon sequestration.

That’s the approach behind Rémy Cointreau’s new partnership with Genesis (formerly Greenback SAS), which uses soil samples and samples to measure the impact of farming practices on soils based on three key indicators: pollution, biodiversity and carbon sequestration. Uses a combination of metadata.

The project will help advance Rémi Cointreau’s research and development strategy in the areas of wine growing and grain crops, helping the group to help wine producers and farmers increasingly adopt climate- and biodiversity-friendly practices.

About Origin (formerly Greenback SAS):

Genesis is the first worldwide agency to rate the environmental health of soils. Established in 2019, it has worked with both public (CNRS-ENS) and private (Mérieux, Trace Genomics) laboratories to develop a system for the assessment of carbon, biodiversity and pollution levels in soils. The resulting rating, correlated with agricultural practices, is designed to improve soil health, yield and vulnerability to risk.
