Description/achievement of initiative
The Voluntary Agreement Programme aims to involve the different agents of Catalan society in the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by creating the technical and institutional framework necessary to support pioneering organisations in dealing with climate change and with the ability, therefore, to lead a shift towards a sustainable economic and energy model. Any Catalan organisation may join this Programme (private businesses, Public Administration bodies and non-profit organisations) with the capacity to reduce their GHG emissions.
Through this Programme, the organisations commit to annually provide an inventory of their GHG emissions and to plan and implement measures to reduce them. The Catalan Office for Climate Change works alongside and guides the organisations throughout this process and the Programme is based on four core principals: commitment, a voluntary nature, rigor and transparency.
