Zero Carbon certificate announced by Andalucían Governing Council

Zero Carbon certificate

A Zero Carbon certificate has been created to recognise companies that commit to reducing their emissions

The President of Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has announced the creation of a ZeroCarbon certificate. It will be awarded to companies in the southern Spanish region that make a commitment to reduce harmful emissions and develop reforestation initiatives in the community.

The President made the announcement in a speech during his first day at the 27th UN Climate Summit (COP 27) held in the Egyptian city of Sharm El-Sheikh. Moreno is scheduled to participate in various meetings until Thursday, November 17.

The Governing Council will be developed using video conferencing meetings with the president, who explained that this certificate, which will be unique in Spain, aims to recognise in a “public and reputational way” all companies that make an effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and at the same time assume a commitment to reforestation in the community.

“That commitment to reforestation and to help prevent our environment from being further degraded is fundamental,” said Juanma Moreno, who has indicated that his Government does not opt for “punitive or punishing, but motivating” measures.

Moreno also warned that Andalucia is “one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change in Europe and, therefore, the world.” The president of the Junta de Andalucía maintains that the climate crisis is “the most important challenge facing humanity” and justified his presence in the Egyptian city of Sharm el Sheikh where the international meeting is held by ensuring that “where the interests of Andalucía are debated, Andalucía has to be”.
