The Spanish Group for Green Growth (GECV), of which Sacyr is a member, trusts that the resolution of the Climate Change summit will enable the promotion of new economic activities

  • The GECV represents 27 companies totaling 308,000 million Euros in revenue
  • Its objective is to provide a favorable environment in which to promote a development model compatible with the efficient use of resources

The Spanish Group for Green Growth (GECV), in which Valoriza Servicios Medioambientales takes part together with another 26 companies, considers that the resolutions of the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP21) being held this week in Paris will serve as a categorical reference in the fight against climate change that, furthermore, will invigorate the economy.

The group, that has just been founded as a not-for-profit association, has made a public statement that recognizes the vital roles that companies should play in the process for the decarbonization of the economy, promoting innovation and the solutions necessary to achieve more sustainable development.


Thus, the companies that form part of the GECV wish to influence the following aspects:

The Spanish Group for Green Growth considers that now "is the time to take action" more than ever, and that public-private alliances are essential for advancing toward a new development model that makes a clear distinction between economic growth and the increase of emissions.

The GECV currently has 27 companies totaling 215,000 employees in Spain alone, and a turnover of 308,000 million Euros. These companies emit 23 million tons of CO2 in Spain (scopes 1 and 2) in sectors as diverse as energy, finance, industry, infrastructures, services or telecommunications, among others.

These companies, many of which are multinationals present on the Ibex 35 index, together with partner SME's, share ambitious goals aimed at reducing emissions, while decidedly wagering for the opportunities embodied by a low-carbon economy.

Following the establishment of the association, its objectives are to promote those activities necessary to convey to society in general and to all interest groups the potential of this economic growth model for Spain; to contribute toward the generation and dissemination of the knowledge necessary to activate the necessary changes; impact the creation of an environment conducive to the development of such model, and serve as a relevant contact in the business sector associated with public administrations, business associations, professional corporations, universities, as well as with other interest groups, at a national as well as international level.
