Surtruck was present at the day of communication and dissemination on the Andalusian Emissions Compensation System. The event was attended, on behalf of the company, Antonio J. Venegas, commercial director of Road Cleaning and Thermosolar O&M.
The SACE has acquired legal rank in the new Law on Measures against Climate Change and for the Transition to a New Energy Model in Andalusia, recently unanimously approved in Parliament.
Surtruck is one of 114 Andalusian companies that are part of the SACE. This body is a specific voluntary instrument aimed at activities based in Andalusia that want to make commitments to reduce emissions, enabling a compensation option, based on the delivery of Absorption Units properly Certified.
On emissions, diffuse emissions are regulated for the first time, setting the target of 18% reduction in 2030 above the level recorded in 2005. The targets for the new energy model are set at a 30 per cent reduction in primary energy consumption and renewable energy supply of 35 per cent of gross final energy consumption by 2030.
The law also provides for actions to compensate for CO2 emissions by absorbing natural sinks mainly linked to forestry projects and forecasting the management of protected natural areas to enhance their capacity carbon fastening.
The event, held in the Confederation of Entrepreneurs of Andalusia (CEA), was attended by the Councillor for Environment and Land Management of the Junta de Andalucía, José Fiscal, and the Secretary General of the CEA, Luis Fernández-Palacios.
