Telvent joins latest Global Compact initiative on climate change

July 18, 2007

Madrid, July 12, 2007 – Telvent GIT S.A. (Nasdaq: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, and participant in the United Nations “Global Compact” initiative, has signed on to the organization’s latest proposal: “Caring for Climate: The Business Leadership Platform.” In endorsing this new statement, Telvent reaffirms its commitment to supporting and promoting the principles it sets out concerning the challenges of climate change.

Specifically, the statement calls participants’ attention to two key aspects associated with climate change. First, it is a reality that requires immediate and urgent decision taking and action, both by governments and by businesses and private citizens, as a result of the negative impact it is already having on security and sustainable development. Second, the community at large must play a role and take responsibility with regard to promoting energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions as much as possible, in addition to providing incentives to society that promote these types of responsible behavior.

According to Telvent's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Manuel Sánchez, “We are aware of the terrible effects that global warming will have on the sustainable development of our way of life. That is why in Telvent we firmly believe that information technologies are already playing an important role in solving the problem. Specifically, Telvent has undertaken the following commitments within the context of the threefold objective set out in the Global Compact: to reduce CO2 emissions; to promote energy savings among the people it trains; and to develop technological solutions to help its clients enhance their energy efficiency and cut back their emissions.”

By joining this timely initiative, Telvent assumes its responsibility as a technology company with regard to the challenges of climate change, conducting its day-to-day business in keeping with a business model fully geared toward achieving the aforementioned goals and toward adhering to the principles to which it has subscribed by becoming a signatory of the “Caring for Climate: The Business Leadership Platform” proposal.
