Aker Horizons Partners with the UN Conference of Youth to Promote and Support the Next Generation of Climate Changemakers

Published

on

OSLO, Norway, Sept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Aker Horizons is proud to announce a partnership with the UN Climate Change Conference of Youth (COY), organised by YOUNGO, which is taking place in Glasgow ahead of the COP26 climate meeting in November.

Aker Horizons is a planet-positive investment company with a focused portfolio committed to realising renewable energy and green technologies such as hydrogen, solar, wind and carbon capture to accelerate the race to zero.

YOUNGO is the official youth consistency of the UNFCCC, bringing together youth-led organisations and delegations from across the globe to represent youth voices and perspectives within the UNFCCC negotiations. They annually convene the UN Climate Change Conference of Youth (COY).

This year, the 16th Annual COY (COY16) will take place on 28-31 October and is the largest and most significant youth gathering on climate change. It will bring together thousands of young changemakers from more than 140 countries to drive youth participation and capacity building for COP26.

Together with the COY16 organisers, Aker Horizons and its portfolio companies will participate in a series of activities, including:

  • Leading career talks for youth about the importance and excitement of working in the renewable energy and decarbonisation sectors
  • Facilitating youth capacity building through providing industry deep-dives into the latest trends and projects in green finance, renewable energy and carbon capture
  • Supporting the COY16 Global Innovation Competition focused on youth climate innovation, including leading the competition assessment panel
  • Presenting the Aker Horizons Innovation Award to youth changemakers at the COY16 Gala Dinner alongside sustainability leaders

“Young people around the world are showing real leadership and demanding accelerated action from leaders in all walks of life,” said Kristian Røkke, Chief Executive Officer of Aker Horizons. “As the generation that will have to live with the consequences of past activities, their involvement in shaping the future is critical. Their perspectives, ideas and passion will positively contribute to achieving our collective energy and decarbonisation goals. As a company working to solve fundamental challenges to our sustainable existence, Aker Horizons is proud to partner with COY16 and YOUNGO at this crucial time and I look forward engaging with the delegates in Glasgow prior to COP26.”

About COY

The UN Climate Change Conference of Youth (COY) is an event under the banner of YOUNGO – The Official Youth Constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The conference takes place right before the annual UN Climate Change Conference, also known as Conference of the Parties (COP), which is being held in Glasgow in November.

COY serves as a space for capacity building and policy training to prepare young people for their participation at COP. One of the major outputs of COY16 is the policy document crafted by youth voices globally, which will be forwarded during the UN Climate Negotiations.

Groundbreaking ceremony in Blomberg: Phoenix Contact builds an energy-efficient facility for machine building

Published

on

The new building will consolidate all the machine building units currently scattered around the Blomberg site, bringing them together in one place. The 18,500 m² site provides space for a production area, offices, and a canteen. In the future, 400 employees will work here. Energy efficiency was a top priority during the planning. Along with the high insulation standard of the building enclosure, heat recovery via a ventilation system and air compressors, and highly efficient plant technology, a photovoltaic system of more than 750 KWp will be installed on the roof. This way, a large portion of the energy demand can be covered by green electricity. The heart of the heating and cooling system is an ice storage tank that will provide the energy for the heat pumps, a technology that utilizes the high amount of energy released by freezing water in order to support heating. The ice that forms in this process can be used for low-cost cooling. “When the system is combined with solar collectors for the ice tank, we can store regenerative energy at a low temperature level without any losses,” Stührenberg explains. “This is yet another building block for increasing our share of self-generated energy from renewable sources.”

IJGlobal reconhece a Atlas Renewable Energy com os prêmios Acordo de Energia do Ano ESG de 2020 e Social ESG

Published

on

O prêmio Social ESG foi concedido ao programa da Atlas “Somos parte da mesma energia”, uma iniciativa social lançada no Brasil, Chile e México, e implementada durante a fase de construção dos projetos de energia solar que a empresa está atualmente desenvolvendo nesses países.

O programa visa capacitar a força de trabalho feminina local com treinamentos que permitirão às mulheres optar por trabalhos mais técnicos na construção dos projetos. Ao mesmo tempo, a Atlas mobilizou seus empreiteiros para, no processo de contratação, dar prioridade às mulheres que participaram dos treinamentos. Esta iniciativa se tornou o principal programa social da Atlas e está alinhada com os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável da ONU (5 – Igualdade de gênero, 8 – Trabalho decente e crescimento econômico, 10 – Redução de desigualdades e 12 – Consumo e produção responsáveis).

Até hoje, aproximadamente 1.000 mulheres foram treinadas em diferentes áreas, como construção civil, carpintaria, saúde e segurança, montagem de módulos, eletricidade, entre outras. Isso nos permitiu aumentar dos habituais 2% para 15% a participação feminina na construção dos projetos.

O programa “Somos parte da mesma energia” deve ser implementado nos novos projetos da empresa para que mais mulheres possam se beneficiar desses treinamentos e encontrar novas oportunidades de carreira.

A Usina Solar Jacarandá no Brasil também foi reconhecida pela IJGlobal com o prêmio Negócio de Energia Solar do Ano (Américas) devido à implementação bem-sucedida do programa “Somos parte da mesma energia” durante a construção do projeto.

Durante esse período, mais de 214 mulheres foram treinadas em habilidades técnicas. Entre as mulheres treinadas, 123 foram contratadas para fazer parte da construção da Jacarandá. No total, 159 mulheres foram contratadas, o que representou 17% do trabalho total contratado na Jacarandá durante o pico das obras. O projeto também se concentrou em contratar grupos sub-representados, como a população afrodescendente no estado da Bahia, que formou a maior parte da força de trabalho, 85% e 83% de homens e de mulheres afrodescendentes, respectivamente.

“É uma honra que a IJGlobal tenha reconhecido nosso programa de força de trabalho feminina “Somos parte da mesma energia” e sua implementação no projeto de energia solar Jacarandá”, disse Maria José Cortes, diretora de ESG da Atlas Renewable Energy. “Criar e implementar este programa tem sido uma experiência incrível para todos nós da Atlas, ajudando a abrir uma porta para novas oportunidades para mulheres em áreas rurais na América Latina e mudando paradigmas. Estamos muito orgulhosos disso, mas sabemos que ainda há muito a ser feito em termos de D&I. Esperamos que este programa promova a base de práticas mais inclusivas em nosso setor e nas comunidades onde atuamos.”

Sobre a Atlas Renewable Energy

O portfólio atual da empresa é de 2,2 GW de projetos contratados nos estágios de desenvolvimento, construção ou operação, e visa expandir para mais 4 GW nos próximos anos.
