Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

Since implementation of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory1 back in 2008, Abengoa requires that all suppliers report on the emissions associated with products and services acquired by the company. Suppliers therefore have an obligation to provide data on the emissions associated with each company order.

In order to facilitate supplier adaptation to the new procurement conditions, a transition period of six months has been established whereby providers who are not initially in a position to report on their emissions undertake in writing to implement a reporting system. This transition period has a maximum duration of six months, after which Abengoa excludes suppliers that have not reported their emissions or who have not undertaken a commitment to implementing a reporting system. Only in exceptional cases may special authorization be granted, in which case the companies involved must submit an estimation of the emissions associated with the goods and/or services provided.
