Registration of the Carbon Footprint as a measure to combat Climate Change

The calculation of the Carbon Footprint of an organization allows to know the set of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted by it, directly or indirectly. In this sense, by means of Royal Decree 163/2014, the Carbon Footprint register was constituted, linked to the Spanish Ministry for Ecological Transition.

This registration is voluntary and aims to promote the calculation and reduction of the Carbon Footprint by Spanish organizations, as well as to promote projects that improve the sink capacity of Spain, thus constituting a measure to combat climate change. The registered organizations will be able to obtain the corresponding seal, which reflects their degree of effort and is translated into three pillars: calculation, reduction and compensation.

At Euro-Funding we have calculated our Carbon Footprint for the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 annuities, obtaining a downward trend in emissions in our fourth year (2017). This has allowed us to reflect on the seal the shading of “CALCULATION” and “REDUCE”. Below is the breakdown of emissions for the last Carbon Footprint calculated in Euro-Funding, which corresponds to the year 2017.

  • Direct emissions correspond to emissions derived from the consumption of fuels in vehicles owned or leased.
  • Indirect emissions correspond to the consumption of electricity associated with electrical and electronic equipment, as well as lighting.

At Euro-Funding we aim to be a benchmark for technical services for our customers, offering them a service tailored to their needs in order to calculate and record the Carbon Footprint or even go further, carrying out the Life Cycle Analysis of their products or supporting eco-design in a time of continuous change towards a low-carbon economy that is more respectful of the environment.
