“As from our beginnings, at LAP we have an intrinsic commitment to the environment, and we know that for our clients it is also a fundamental aspect of their work. That is why, through these certifications, we support them in meeting their strategic objectives and in seeking to ensure that their operations come from 100% renewable sources, so that their production is carried out in a sustainable manner, minimizing their environmental impact. These types of certificates represent a milestone for companies, since they allow them to validate and reaffirm their efforts to ensure sustainable production,” explained the commercial manager of Latin America Power, Óscar Morales.
One of these paths is through obtaining the I-REC international certificates that audit the production and consumption of renewable energy in the country. This certification corresponds to a tracking system for renewable attributes I-REC Standard, managed by the International REC Standard Foundation, which is recommended in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG-Greenhouse Gas) – the footprint accounting standard of carbon most used by large companies in the world-, and certifies that the energy generating company is using renewable sources and, in turn, that the electricity supply of its client comes from a 100% renewable source.
