The council has reported its carbon footprint in Estepona to reduce its environmental waste.
Council representative Juan Manuel Ros said it was a necessary step to continue developing the Estepona Climate and Sustainable Energy Action Plan, which is the result of the City Council’s accession to the Spanish Network of Cities for the Climate.
The aim of Estepona’s plan is to improve sustainable development policies and adapt to climate change.
Carbon Footprint is the environmental indicator that reflects the totality of greenhouse gases emitted directly and indirectly by an individual, organisation or product.
Juan Manuel Ros said that reporting Estepona’s carbon footprint will allow the council to reference the reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in subsequent years. In addition, it will serve to establish the necessary policies to limit such environmental waste.
The measures will aim to limit the negative effects of climate change in the town.
Mr Ros said that in its effort to meet the challenges posed by climate change, Estepona will continue to adapt its policies and implement the necessary measures to reduce its carbon footprint, and measures to reduce the impact of climate change locally.
He added that the council also has policies aimed at promoting a more sustainable town, including by restricting traffic in Estepona.
