AQ ACENTOR: TOWARD MORE RESPONSIBLE HOUSING
With Eco2plus, 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 through certified projects that generate clean energy.
- In Spain, a three-person household produces an average of two tons of CO2 per year, generated by the consumption of electricity and gas.
- AQ Acentor has signed a global agreement with KlimaInvest, a company with more than 40 certified renewable energy projects worldwide that operates according to the strict VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and Gold Standards.
Committed to a new way of living
Aware of what climate change entails for the planet and following a trend that is increasingly prevalent in Germany, AQ Acentor wants 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 this initiative consist of?
In Spain, a three-person household produces an average of two tons of CO2 per year, generated by the consumption of electricity and gas. To offset this 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.
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,” explains 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.
