Spain-based flight simulator developer entrol has made a serious commitment to sustainability by reducing the CO2 emissions of its actions and has set itself the goal of zero emissions by 2025, contributing to the worldwide objectives for environmentally sustainable development.
The company plans to reach this goal in part by generating the energy it consumes. In the first phase, it has been able to generate 45 per cent of the electricity it consumes thanks to its photovoltaic cells. Now it is beginning the second phase, where it will extend the available electricity-generating surface to produce 100 per cent of the energy required for its development.
It has also acquired electric vehicles and installed charging points for company displacements with the aim of improving its mobility and respecting the environment more.
Additionally it has improved processes company-wide by creating an integrated system to reduce the environmental impact.
Entrol has also been awarded ISO 14001 certification. This internationally recognised certificate proves that it has been able to create an integrated system that allows it to manage and improve the environmental impact of the company, including carbon emissions, waste and energetic consumption, among others. This certificate also assures legal compliance in environmental affairs, employees' commitment, processes being made in entrol and the final product and extra services offered.
Quality, health, safety and environment manager Jéssica Armenteros says: “Achieving this certificate is important for customers, providers and employees because it strengthens the feeling of belonging. We are all in the same boat, rowing in the same direction to save the planet. We want to generate social impact.”
Most importantly, this is just the beginning of a new stage that entrol hopes other companies will follow; it believes that regarding sustainability, we must all stay united.
