Transemel reinforces its commitment to combat climate change

Transemel, the Chilean electricity transmission operator of the REN Group was once again recognized with the HuellaChile seal, a distinction awarded under the National Carbon Management Program HuellaChile.

HuellaChile is a program of the Chilean Ministry of the Environment that promotes the quantification, reporting and management of corporate GHG emissions in the public and private spheres.

The participation in this program and the recognition by the Chilean Ministry of the Environment confirms "the firm contribution of Transemel in the fight against climate change, controlling and trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions," says Rodrigo Guerrero, director of the Chilean electric company. Transemel has improved energy efficiency and reduced energy costs, in line with the decarbonization strategy undertaken by REN, enhancing the opening of new sustainable business opportunities.

Between 2022 and 2021, Transemel's carbon footprint decreased by 13%, from 12,254 tCO2 to 10,664 tCO2.

REN has been reinforcing its commitment to sustainability: It assumed the goal of reducing its emissions by 50% by 2030 (compared to 2019) and achieving carbon neutrality by 2040, ten years ahead of that defined by the European Union. The company will continue to promote, support and develop actions and projects in line with the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals and REN's sustainability strategy.  REN also aims to have 1/3 of the top management positions held by women by 2030, promote diversity and ensure that the company's funding comes entirely from green emissions.
