Demographic perspectives indicate that the population will grow to 9,500 million inhabitants in 2050 and 70% will live in cities. Therefore, to ensure a sustainable future, it is necessary to decouple the growth and modernization of the greenhouse gas emissions industry. Implementing energy efficiency measures in the industrial sector and linking production processes to renewable energy is a basic objective today to align with the current energy transition process.
The industry usually produces environmental impacts in very diverse environments, such as air, water, waste generation, and energy consumption. The oil industry, followed by the textile sector, is currently leading the most polluting sectors on the planet. The food, livestock and agricultural industry currently represent an important contribution of greenhouse gases. In fact, according to the IPCC, more than half of global industrial emissions can be attributed to 25 companies and state entities. Corresponding one-third of the emissions to public companies, key to take action towards a sustainable energy transition.
ALLCOT uses and adapts different internationally accredited methodologies to conservatively calculate the emission reductions associated with different energy efficiency or process projects in industrial facilities. This is achieved by comparing the greenhouse gas emissions that occurred before implementing the improvement with those produced after its implementation, or, in the case of new installations, comparing the emissions of a conventional equivalent installation with the project option, more sustainable.
With the generation of carbon credits, companies can obtain an economic incentive to help finance their efforts in reducing greenhouse emissions of their production processes.
