Spanish storage operator and the Spanish Association of Oil Product Operators have agreed to jointly promote measures to further the decarbonisation and climate change agenda.
The AOP and CLH agree on the need to reduce emissions in their processes and products through innovation and have analysed the strategic projects approved by both entities to identify opportunities for cooperation within the framework of the Strategy for the evolution towards eco-fuels.
Both organisations have also opened up a new phase where they will seek support for this partnership in order to promote the development of low-carbon liquid fuels: eco-fuels. The objective is to reduce CO2 emissions by 90% in processes and by 80% in products by 2050, in line with the Paris Agreements and environmental commitments.
The sustainability strategy approved by CLH aims at becoming carbon neutral by 2050 was discussed.
Jorge Lanza, CEO of CLH, says: 'CLH wishes to continue contributing to the development of society and the sustainability of the planet by managing infrastructure that is essential to people's well-bring, and will therefore strengthen cooperation with oil operators and other relevant players across different sectors with the aim of contributing to the fight against climate change, in addition to offering new energy solutions.'
President of the AOP Luis Aires adds: 'AOP and CLH share the same goals in relation to the decarbonisation of the sector. Therefore, we wish to consolidate this partnership and reach out to other entities which, like us, are committed to the fight against climate change and share the need to fully participate in the energy transition process, which should not exclude any technology, but rather foster healthy competition between all stakeholders, in order to allow for the development of those technologies that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases.'
