Sustainable future through business strategies

The key role of environmental certifications in Mexico

  • Certifications and bonds issued by the government for companies that reduce their emissions become key tools that drive environmental care and business growth.

  • GHG emissions must be reduced by 40 to 70% by 2050, according to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

  • Companies that use technologies to measure their carbon emissions are better prepared to mitigate the risks associated with climate change.

According to IBM's recent study, “CEO decision-making in the age of AI”, 42% of CEOs surveyed globally point to environmental sustainability as their main challenge in the next three years; The study also points out that they are facing pressure to adopt data management technologies so efficient that they can determine the environmental performance of each company and seek alternatives to provide solutions to the challenges faced by organizations seeking to reduce their GHG emissions. greenhouse).

95% of organizations surveyed have developed ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) proposals in Mexico: Only 7% say they have made significant progress towards their goals and 65% say they struggle to manage a large amount of manual data. Thus, it is completely essential to take advantage of Cleantech technological solutions focused on decarbonization, to transform the ability to collect, analyze and report carbon footprint inventories.

On the other hand, in line with its commitment to environmental care and preservation of the environment, the Mexican government has implemented instruments such as the Emissions Trading System. Which establishes an emissions limit for industries that exceed 100 thousand tons of GHG annually with the objective of preventing the excessive emission of polluting gases. As part of this initiative, the government intends to issue bonds in the form of financial impulses to those companies that carry out carbon dioxide reduction activities, thus encouraging the active participation of companies in the transition to a low-carbon economy.

The data supports the importance of these types of implementations. According to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), GHG emissions must be reduced by 40 to 70% by 2050, compared to 2010 levels, to limit temperature rise. global at 1.5 degrees Celsius. This goal can only be achieved through coordinated actions of the public and private sectors.

The certification system is not limited only to reducing emissions, it also seeks to promote the adoption of clean technologies and generate economic opportunities through new markets. This translates into an additional incentive for companies to invest in sustainable projects and adopt more environmentally friendly practices.

In this sense, the use of certifications and bonuses is positioned as an effective strategy to achieve climate goals and move towards a sustainable economy. The possibility of obtaining these tools, through Cleantech companies, not only promote the reduction of emissions, but also stimulate technological innovation and generate new economic opportunities in sectors such as renewable energies, energy efficiency and sustainable mobility.

The use of certifications and vouchers represent a key incentive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote a low carbon economy in Mexico. Companies like Oxtron play a fundamental role by becoming allies of all types of businesses that allow them to obtain validation of emissions reductions, providing the opportunity to reduce the environmental impact of different business processes, also adding a distinctive value. which can mean a competitive advantage.

This approach not only seeks to reduce emissions, but also drive the adoption of clean technologies and generate economic opportunities through new markets.

The path to a low-carbon economy presents challenges, but also opportunities. Mexico has great potential to lead this transition thanks to its wealth in natural resources, its government commitment and the active participation of companies. It is essential that both the public and private sectors have allied technologies for capturing and transforming carbon emissions to drive the adoption of sustainable practices and promote a resilient, low-carbon economy that benefits both the environment and society as a whole.
