The consulting company that provides expert advice on the life cycle of projects ratifies its commitment to sustainability and offsets its carbon footprint corresponding to the activities carried out during the past year.
With the focus on reducing the carbon footprint generated by the activities carried out in 2021, Joyco voluntary carbon credits for a total of 78 tCO2e in the reduction project called Doña Juana Landfill Gas to Energy Project.
The project seeks to capture, extract, treat and use biogas from the Doña Juana landfill for flaring, electricity production and thermal use.
According to the Special Administrative Unit of Public Services, the Doña Juana sanitary landfill, located in Ciudad Bolívar, is the leading engineering work in Bogotá for waste disposal and its vital for the development of the city.
EcoRegistry, a company that seeks to boost the implementation of solutions for sustainable development through technology, and which is the first registry of carbon credits based on blockchain technology states that “to this date this is the most important project in Colombia and one of the most representative worldwide regarding the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in a landfill”.
With this voluntary offset, Joyco ratifies its commitment to contributing to climate change mitigation, supporting national decarbonization goals and contributing to Goal 13: Climate Change, as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.
“As an organization, we have always been aware of our commitment to the environment and our responsibility to care for it. This year was the first time we offset our carbon footprint after measuring it in 2021. This year we will also measure our footprint to offset it next year,” said Diana Lorena Castaño, Joyco’s General Manager.
