The Civil Guard and Repsol sign a collaboration protocol to achieve more sustainable mobility
This collaboration is part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) promoted by the United Nations through the 2030 Agenda
The protocol includes aspects such as the improvement of sustainable mobility and energy efficiency and sufficiency, in addition to environmental awareness and the implementation of joint R & D & i actions
Both institutions, public and private, also intend, through this collaboration protocol, to explore and initiate various actions with which to provide social assistance and professional training to their members.
The CEO of Repsol, Josu Jon Imaz, and the General Director of the Civil Guard, María Gámez, today signed a collaboration protocol with which they intend to improve sustainability in terms of mobility, among other goals. The agreement between the institution and the multi-energy company seeks to promote aspects such as environmental sustainability, through self-consumption and to promote a safety and environmental culture. These are areas in which both institutions share many interests, and in which the Civil Guard intends to advance, from its operational aspect with SEPRONA, as the maximum exponent of its self-demand in environmental matters.
Thus, the protocol contemplates the possibility of starting action programs framed in the installation of electric recharging points and self-consumption using photovoltaic solar energy. In turn, experiences of services and products can be exchanged between both groups, and joint R & D & i actions for the benefit of safety, through teams, infrastructures and joint work resources between both institutions.
This collaboration is part of the institutional strategic lines of the 2030 Agenda that the armed institute has programmed, through government and ministerial plans. Both organizations assume, individually and jointly, through this alliance, to share synergies that favor the development of initiatives in sustainability that benefit both organizations.
This agreement will translate into the immediate implementation of joint work programs that will include environmental and ethical concerns, in business practice and in the execution of service to citizens, such as respect for human rights and social dialogue by the one to know and approach citizens' concerns.
The aforementioned protocol also includes elements of improvement and support for the members of both organizations, within the promotion of a culture of safety and social action.
In this sense, the Civil Guard is in the phase of approving its II Sustainability Plan (2021-2025) whose orientation is fully aligned with Repsol's recently approved Strategic Plan 2021-2025. The two plans develop the roadmaps of both institutions to integrate sustainability within their respective fields of action.
The signed collaboration protocol also seeks to achieve some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that the United Nations has been promoting since 2015:
- SDG7: Affordable and clean energy
- SDG9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- SDG11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
- SDG13: Climate Action
In this sense, Repsol has been immersed in a process of transformation and diversification of its businesses for years with the aim of leading the energy transition, being the first company in its sector to support the Kyoto Protocol, the first to issue a green bond and , also, in December 2019, the first to set the goal of being a company with zero net emissions by 2050.
In addition, Repsol leads the multi-energy supply in Spain, providing solutions that improve efficiency, increasing the weight of low-emission energies and developing digital products and tools.
The Civil Guard, regarding the use of its energy-consuming resources (vehicles, boats, aircraft), also has more than 2,300 infrastructures. For this reason, within the new framework of institutional strategies facing the impact of its use and consumption, the Civil Guard wants to constitute an essential element to bring new developments, which technology will shortly make possible and profitable in its areas of performance. In addition, the institution provides a character of modernity at the international level, through its participation in missions and programs of the State's foreign action.
