where it all started
Porto Protocol is a key outcome of the Climate Change Leadership conferences, an undertaking by all participants to adopt and promote the principles and measures established at the summits, by signing the Letter of Principles for The Porto Protocol.
who we are
The Porto Protocol Foundation is a non-profit corporate institution, founded by Taylor’s Port, that counts with hundreds of members, united by a binding commitment to make a greater contribution to mitigate climate change.
Born out of the wine industry and spread across industries from its whole value chain, Porto Protocol was created under the belief that, if we share our successes and experiences, our response against climate change will be more effective.
We work as an open and shared platform, a place of inspiration for change, a dynamic database of resources and workable solutions from which companies and individuals from all over the world, wishing to take action, can benefit and contribute.
It is more than a call to action, it is a binding commitment by its signatories, from whatever sector, to make a greater contribution to fight climate change.

the city of Porto as a natural stage for this commitment
Porto is an adaptable and entrepreneurial city which equally values innovation and proactive leadership, and respects and protects it heritage. One of the world’s great wine capitals, Porto is the hub of some of Europe’s most diverse vineyard regions, including several potentially at great risk from climate change.
Together, we can discuss concrete ideas, share real experiences and provide effective solutions which have been shown to work, on whatever scale.
Leader of The Porto Protocol & CEO Taylor's Port
``We need to share between us the solutions that are making a difference, stimulate new ideas and inspire others to take action. There is no time, and no need, to reinvent things. If we share our successes and experiences we will all benefit.``
