Environmental protection is one of the main objectives of the Energy Efficiency Project Croatia. ESCO projects contribute directly to environmental protection and promote sustainable development by reducing energy production requirements and thereby lowering pollutant emissions and waste quantity. Depending on project type, other types of pollution are reduced such as light pollution from public lighting. On the global level, CO2 emissions are reduced while there is local reduction in air emissions of SO2, NOx and particulates and emissions of pollutants into water and soil.
Estimated pollutant emission savings
The degree of environmental impact directly correlates with the degree of energy efficiency achieved by consumers. Accordingly, the motives to reduce environmental impact overlap with the motive to increase energy efficiency. For the purposes of its operations, HEP ESCO has prepared Framework Environmental Management Plan, incorporating in its projects disposal of old equipment and calculating reduction in air pollutant emissions.
