GONDAN Shipbuilders is leading a pilot project to calculate its Carbon Footprint with the aim of improving the reduction, absorption and compensation of greenhouse gas emissions in Asturias.
The project, promoted by the Regional Ministry of Autonomous Administration, Environment and Climate Change, aims to open the way for companies, organizations and entities to promote their commitment to environmental protection and the fight against climate change.
As of today, GONDAN’s electricity consumption is already 100% renewable, as well as the use of electric vehicles. Other measures in relation to energy consumption are in the implementation phase, which will further intensify actions to reduce carbon emissions.
One of these new measures to be implemented immediately is the replacement of the current gases used in welding with Eco Origin gases, which bring with them a reduction of the carbon footprint of more than 95% compared to products without this certification.
