world and develop a global social responsibility program." Philippe Schaus
The rising concern around climate change affects us all. This "Living Soils" 
forum is intended to move the conversation forward and facilitate a discussion 
and ultimately raise awareness without taboo. 
"A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world" - 
Louis Pasteur. This philosophy has been at the heart of Moet Hennessy's vision 
for continuous progress on the human side, as well as in terms of knowledge, 
methods and technology. Climate change, preservation of the soils, water and 
energy conservation, as well as sustainability in supply chains all factor in 
to the protection of the "Living Soils". On this occasion, Moet Hennessy made 
three announcements:  

- In 2020, all of its vineyards in Champagne will be herbicide-free and the 
Division will provide support to winegrower partners to help them become 
certified sustainable.  

- Moet Hennessy will invest €20M in a research center in the Champagne Region 
devoted to scientific research around sustainable viticulture  

- A "University of Living Soils" will be created to encourage the sharing of 
knowledge and best practices. Its aim will be to enrich the debates on progress 
toward a more sustainable future for wine and spirits in an inclusive way. 
Moet Hennessy's vision across all Maisons is to lead the way for future 
generations, so that all employees, consumers and winemakers can continue to 
enjoy and discover its wines and spirits in a consistent and integrated way 
that is respectful of nature.
