AMB | Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona reduces its carbon footprint

AMB

ACR+ member Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB), has created its Carbon Management Strategy (2011-2015) as part of its commitment to fight against climate change. This mitigation strategy applies to all facilities and services of its competence; institutional building, solid waste treatment equipment, wastewater treatment, water sanitation and regeneration plants, territory maintenance and mobility companies.

The main objective is to achieve a 10% footprint reduction in 2015 in relation to the base year of calculation (2011). This is expected to remain in line with the European 20.20.20 objectives, which are to achieve 20% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2020, by increasing both the usage of renewable energy and energy efficiency by 20% respectively.
