AQ ACENTOR: TOWARDS MORE RESPONSIBLE HOUSING
We offset the CO2 emissions generated by our clients’ homes by investing in clean energy for the first two years.
- The CO2 emissions generated by all the homes in our developments delivered from now until 2025 will be offset by certified projects that generate clean energy.
- In Spain, a 3-person household produces two tonnes of CO2 each year through the consumption of electricity and gas in the home.
- At AQ Acentor, we have signed a global agreement with KlimaInvest, a company with more than 40 certified renewable energy projects worldwide that operates under the strict VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and Gold Standards.
Committed to a new way of living
Aware of what climate change means for the planet and in line with a growing trend in Germany, at AQ Acentor we want to do our bit to boost sustainability and get our clients involved by offsetting the CO2 emissions of their homes for the first two years after delivery.
What does the initiative consist of?
In Spain, a 3-person household produces an average of two tonnes of CO2 each year through the consumption of electricity and gas in the home. To offset that footprint, AQ Acentor has signed a global agreement with the German company, KlimaInvest, which operates according to the strict VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and Gold Standards. To certify the offset, a master certificate is issued to AQ Acentor with additional certificates for each development. Each client will also receive a copy of the certificate. Once two years have elapsed, our clients can continue to offset their CO2 footprint as they see fit.
It’s time to build a more sustainable tomorrow
Greenhouse gases can be reduced where the implementation of climate protection is more feasible.
KlimaInvest currently participates in 40 projects worldwide. One of these projects, located in India, not only saves large amounts of CO2 each year, but invests in green energy, which ensures the living conditions of the region’s population.
“With this agreement, we want to make it clear that AQ Acentor cares about the sustainability of its projects. With free offsetting for clients, we aim to go a step further and not just neutralise the CO2 emissions produced by homes but raise awareness of this service and inform our clients about the importance of caring for the environment. Sustainable development and investment in green projects is part of the DNA of the Aquila Group,” -Sven Schoel, CEO of AQ Acentor.
Naturally, the CO2 emissions produced by AQ Acentor are also offset, as are those of all the companies in the Aquila Group.
