SIGNUS Sees 33% Reduction in its Carbon Footprint over Three Years

The Carbon Footprint Record is of a voluntary nature and recognises the efforts of organisations such as SIGNUS in the calculation, reduction and compensation of the emissions of climate change gases generated from their activity

SIGNUS registered for the first time, at the Spanish Office of Climate Change, the carbon footprint fort its activity in 2017. SIGNUS was the first collective management responsibility system is carried out with the aim of improving the environmental management of ELT, not only by finding more applications for the resulting sub-products, but also by involving all the actors involved in the different operations of the management in order to improve its energy efficiency. For this reason, SIGNUS incorporates, in its entirety, the requirement of all its collection and treatment service selection processes, the obligation to comply with carbon dioxide emission measurements.

SIGNUS has recently measured and recorded the organisation’s climate warming gas emissions relative to its generated activity in 2022. Thanks to the planning and implementation of the measures considered in its Reduction Plan, it has quantified an emissions reduction of 33 per cent in the 2020-2022 three-year period, compared to the 2019-2021 three-year period, for levels 1+2. The data shows that SIGNUS’s initiatives in this matter are effective in achieving the goal of minimising the carbon footprint by demonstrating its commitment to decarbonisation.

The result of the certified medical examination has entitled SIGNUS to obtain two of the three stamps issued by the Spanish Climate Change Office (Calculation, Reduction and Compensation) related to the decarbonisation commitment of Spanish companies by 2050.
