Colbun, Corporate offices CO2 Neutral

For the sixth consecutive year, Colbún has neutralized Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) associated with the operation of its corporate offices during 2016.

The emissions of the neutralized corporate offices correspond mainly to the consumption of electric energy and fuel, personnel transfers, business trips and disposal of waste. The emissions inventory is made under the GHG Protocol methodology and is verified by an independent third party, EY Chile, thus obtaining the SCX International CO2 Neutral Certification.

With more than 15 years of commitment to climate change, Colbún has defined in its corporate strategy the objective of maintaining the Company’s CO2 emission factor (in its operations in Chile) below the average emission factor of the Central Interconnected System (TonCO2e / MWh),
