March 7, 2016

  • The company has received for the fourth consecutive year the GEI2 recognition from the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources and the Commission on Private Sector Studies for Sustainable Development of Mexico .

March 7, 2016 - Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B/P SM /NASDAQ: ABGB), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has received for the fourth consecutive year the recognition from the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources of the Government of Mexico, which adds value in the emissions management system of Abengoa Mexico .

Between these program objectives, pioneer in Latin America, it’s observed the voluntary report of self-emissions (scopes 1 and 2 of Abengoa’s policy), and considers as optional the report of scope 3 emissions related to suppliers.

In the 10 years that the program has been carried out, there have been more than 100 companies reporting annual emissions by 150 million tons of greenhouse gases (GHG), accounting for nearly 20% of emissions. Among these, there are ten suppliers of Abengoa Mexico, as a result of the training courses taught by the company to our suppliers.

Nowadays, Abengoa Mexico has the ISO 9000, ISO 14000 and ISO 18000 certificates, and continues placed as the only nationwide constructor that performs its greenhouse gases emissions inventory at the three scopes.

Abengoa develops an inventory of greenhouse gases since 2008 to measure GHG emissions from all activities of the company, through an internal tool integrated into the ISMS (Integrated Sustainability Management System). The emission management system of Abengoa, comprising GHG inventory, methodologies, calculation systems and the overall result of annual emissions of the company, is externally verified every year according to the ISO 14064 standard.

Resulting from this management model, Abengoa has been recognized for the second time by the CDP (Climate Disclosure Project) for implementing policies to battle climate change. Specifically, Abengoa takes part of the “The A List”, which stands listed companies that demonstrate a “superior approach to climate change mitigation”
