Leading the Fight Against Climate Change
Rebeca Acebron, CEO of Acebron Group, has confirmed her participation in the event “European plan for industry: decarbonization and energy saving”. This meeting, organized by the Confederation of Entrepreneurs of Galicia (CEG) in collaboration with Iberdrola, will take place next Thursday, October 19 in Santiago de Compostela.
The focus of the event is on the plan developed by the European Commission, which aims to boost the EU’s manufacturing capacity in terms of technologies and products with zero net emissions. These initiatives are essential to meet the climate commitments established at European level. During the event, renowned experts in the sector will analyze future prospects and discuss the challenges that the productive fabric will face in its journey towards the decarbonization of the economy.
The meeting will be held at the facilities of the Confederación de Empresarios de Galicia, located at Rúa del Villar, 54, Santiago de Compostela. It will undoubtedly be an excellent opportunity to learn about the challenges and opportunities presented by the energy transition in the European industrial field.
EU “Objective 55”: Advancing the Fight Against Climate Change
Target 55″ is a strategic initiative driven by the European Union to address the challenge of climate change at the regional level. Under this ambitious plan, the EU is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030, compared to previous levels. This target not only represents a significant change in numerical terms, but also implies a thorough adaptation and revision of current legislation and policies. The purpose is to ensure that the transition to a more sustainable future is fair and equitable for all member states, while fostering innovation and competitiveness on the global stage.
Methane Reduction and Renewable Energy
Methane, a greenhouse gas much more potent than carbon dioxide, has been identified as one of the main focal points for action under “Target 55”. The EU is proposing concrete measures to control and reduce its emissions, particularly in the energy sector, where its impact is most pronounced. At the same time, there is a determined drive towards renewable energies. The goal is clear: to raise the share of these energies to 40% of total consumption by 2030. This involves promotion policies in key sectors, such as transportation and construction, where the potential of renewables has not yet been fully exploited.
Energy Efficiency and Decarbonized Gases
With the growing demand for energy, efficiency is becoming critical. The EU has set its sights on optimizing consumption, targeting an 11.7% reduction in total energy consumption by 2030. This translates into more efficient buildings, cleaner technologies and a renewed commitment on the part of the Member States.
In addition, legislation is introduced to promote the market for hydrogen and other decarbonized gases. The vision is ambitious: to gradually replace natural gas and establish a solid infrastructure for the production and distribution of these cleaner gases.
Emissions reduction Acebron Group
We are proud to have far exceeded our Scope 1+2 emissions reduction target, achieving a decrease of more than 50% from 2019 to 2022. This achievement is a testament to our ongoing commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. We contribute significantly to the fight against climate change and are committed to continue working towards a cleaner and healthier future for our planet.
The transition to a low-carbon economy is imperative and the EU’s “Objective 55” sets the way forward. In this context, the contribution of experts such as Rebeca Acebrón is vital. Her insight into the challenges facing the manufacturing industry in its quest for emission neutrality will provide an enriching perspective. The discussions and conclusions of this conference will undoubtedly influence the strategies and decisions of multiple industrial sectors in Europe.
