Climate Change

Climate Change is a cross-cutting issue in our activity. We develop many reafforestation projects following biodiversity criteria that, in many cases, also contribute to the compensation of carbon footprint. We have participated in the first project in Spain for the compensation of CO2 emissions through a reafforestation project that has verified under the ISO 14064-2 standard and following the “Verified Carbon Standard” Voluntary Carbon Market.

Since 2010 we work on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption in the farming sector. We have coordinated in Europe the LIFE “AgriClimateChange project, which was awarded the “Best of the Best” prize by the European Commission. Its objective was to determine and support the most effective farming measures to combat climate change. Different measures were proposed to Spanish administration (e.g. for the Routemap for non-ETS sectors) and European administrations (to the European Commission and to the European Parliament, which led to the elaboration of the report  “Measures at farm level to reduce greenhouse gas emissions form EU agriculture”). We currently develop specific projects on mitigation and adaptation in the European farming sector, strategies for the agrifood sector and, in general terms, we promote synergies between farming and sourcing measures regarding energy and climate change, water consumption, soil protection, etc.

In collaboration with local entities, we develop strategies and action plans related to climate change. We have recently coordinated the LIFE “Las Rozas por el Clima” project, in collaboration with Las Rozas city council (beneficiary). This project included adaptation and mitigation pilot actions (CO2 sinks, solar pannels, intelligent irrigation systems, etc), the organization of participation and awareness-raising actions for different stakeholders, such as school students (Ecoschools networking and travelling exhibition) or private companies, as well as awareness-raising actions aimed at citizens (“Green homes”). As a final result, the local government passed the Local Strategy on Climate Change 2014-2020 for the municipality.
