We develop a management model that identifies Climate Change risks and opportunities.

Management Model

Our management model includes the following action lines:

  • Decision making driven by carbon price.
  • Development of projects to issue carbon credits.
  • Measuring, verifying and reporting our carbon footprint.
  • Construction of a renewable energy matrix.
  • Participating in the public-private debate.

  • In addition, since 2010 Colbún has been measuring and verifying its Carbon Footprint in scopes 1, 2 y 3 and we were the first to participate in international carbon markets. At present, six of our power plants are registered before the United Nations’ Clean Development Mechanism, which have meant an annual reduction of approximately 300,000 tons of CO2 , equivalent to removing from circulation 75,000 cars.

    To learn more about our climate change management, review our CDP reports here.

    POWER PLANTS CERTIFIED TO ISSUE CARBON CREDITS


    Carbon credits are a way to appraise CO2 emissions that stop being issued to the atmosphere.
    They may be acquired by third parties to neutralize or reduce their emissions.
