Environmental management foresees that firms not only organize a system based on the prevention of operating outside the boundaries of the law but also on a program of continuous improvement of business behavior towards the environment. Life cycle assessment (LCA) as a method to support these systems enables otherwise invisible aspects to emerge that allow revising and optimizing the use of resources such as reducing energy or water consumption and other more general issues. This paper has as its objective to expose the advantages resulting from the use of the Life Cycle Assessment method in the wine production sector, with particular reference to wine production in the Tuscany region.
