TIRME obtains the 'Calculo+Reduzco' seal within the carbon footprint registration process


Tirme, fulfilling its commitment to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, has obtained for the year 2020 the 'Calculo+Reduzco' seal granted by the Spanish Office of Climate Change (OECC), within the process of Registration of carbon footprint, compensation and CO₂ absorption projects established by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITERD). The 'Calculo+Reduzco' seal is awarded to organizations that calculate and record their carbon footprint for a minimum of four years, have a plan for the reduction of their emissions and make their commitment to reduction effective.

From Tirme the fight against climate change is understood as a priority for society and one of the objectives of our Strategic Plan 2018-2021 has been to materialize the 20/20/20 Plan as the axis of the dearbonization policy of the company. Tirme has achieved a reduction in the average emission intensity of 4.52% compared to the triennium 2018-2020, for scopes 1 + 2 and 3. Tirme has continued to advance in the definition and validation of calculation tools and methodologies, based on the structure of ISO 14064, although concepts and recommendations of more specific guides for our sector have been taken into account. The quantification of the carbon footprint is carried out through its own tool that calculates, in an exhaustive way, the emissions for each type of activity, installation and even process. This degree of disaggregation of emissions makes it possible to identify the risks and opportunities associated with climate change as well as the subsequent adoption of improvement measures to reduce the carbon footprint.

The reduction of CO₂ emissions has been achieved thanks to three fundamental lines of action that in the triennium 2018-2020 have made it possible to avoid the emission into the atmosphere of 299,000 tons of CO2 equivalent:

• Replacement of the conventional vehicle fleet with electric and hybrid vehicles, vehicles that significantly reduce GHG emissions compared to vehicles that use fossil fuels

• Implementation of energy efficiency measures in the facilities.

• Self-consumption and purchase of energy with guarantee of origin for some of our facilities.

In addition, the reduction of the carbon footprint in the management of urban waste in Mallorca has been calculated, which has been achieved through the changes in the management policies introduced through the Master Plans and in the increase of the selective collection promoted by them. In the time window of 1990-2020, a 63% reduction in the carbon footprint associated with urban waste management has been achieved.
