The need to implement policies to combat climate change is now an undisputed reality.

The increasing awareness of both Spanish and international organisations in relation to the need to take measures to curb and alleviate the phenomenon of climate change is clear to see and needs to be led by the Government Authorities in a coherent manner.

Pursuant to regulatory requirements or European commitments (for example, PACES), national or regional, we at ECOTERRAE support town councils in the decarbonisation of the region and the fight against climate change.

We have established municipal strategies for different regions in the country, working with major cities (Sevilla, Malaga, Leon and Almería), regional governments (Barcelona, Girona, Valencia and Tarragona), and public bodies (regional councils of Andalusia and Galicia).

Uno de los principales compromisos europeos es el Pacto de las Alcaldías para el Clima y la Energía Sostenible (PACES), cuyo objetivo es la reducción de los gases de efecto invernadero en un 40 % para 2030 y la adopción de un enfoque común para el impulso de la mitigación y la adaptación al cambio climático.

Con otros municipios se ha trabajado para dar cumplimiento legislativo autonómico (Plan Municipal contra el cambio climátido de la Junta de Andalucía), en Planes de movilidad, de eficiencia energética, cálculo de Huella de Carbono Municipal o Planes de Adaptación.

Acelerar en definitiva, la descarbonización de sus territorios, fortalecer su capacidad para adaptarse a los impactos ineludibles del cambio climático y conseguir que sus ciudadanos disfruten de acceso a una energía segura, sostenible y asequible.           

A total of more than 100 municipalities have managed to define the strategic lines that, aligned with the Urban Agenda and the SDGs, enable them to implement a Municipal Plan against Climate Change, a roadmap of initiatives and a search for the financing of these activities.

These plans, in addition to good public communication and participation, provide our clients with the necessary tools to act as promoters of more sustainable cities.
