From March 2020, society and the economy were affected by COVID- 19. bvc Group companies modified their place and way of working and transitioned to remote working. Although resource usage plummeted, sometimes even to zero, this did not affect ongoing environmental initiatives designed to shape company culture around protecting natural resources, and encourage understanding, compassion and minimisation of our impact on the environment.
In 2020, we measured our carbon footprint for the second time by identifying the scope of different emitters in categories 1-3. This methodology is based on NTC 14061-1 and some aspects of GHG protocol, and is a consolidated information system on direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions that allows us to revise bvc Group’s environmental management from a 2019 baseline.
In 2020 we measured the carbon footprints of Precia, Cámara de Riesgo Central de Contraparte, bvc and deceval. Total emissions in 2020 were 295 tons, 46% less than 2019 (551 tons).
