Since the United Nations included the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on its crucial agenda, sustainability has emerged as a significant theme that captures global attention. Although the global Champagne market is increasing significantly, it is exposed to the physical risk caused by drought and some other challenges. With climate change and environmental issues, coupled with the impact of the spread of the epidemic on the wine industry, innovation and sustainability have become crucial development trends. The Champagne region has undertaken several sustainable projects over the past 15 years and achieved significant success, establishing itself as a leader in advocating for sustainability within the French wine industry. This paper employed a case study of Champagne region, conducting secondary research, gathering data from the official website of Comité Interprofessionnel du vin de Champagne (CIVC), as well as other reputable wine-related media outlets, associations, and organizations. Content analysis was used to determine the ways, the achievements, and the necessity of new sustainable projects implementation methods that will be used in the Champagne region.
