Engie Brasil Energia S A : is to offset the CO2 emissions generated by the 2023 Spanta Universe Festival

ENGIE Brasil has signed a partnership agreement with the organizers’ of the 2023 Spanta Universe Festival and will be responsible for the decarbonization of the event. The expectation is to achieve the neutralization of the approximately 9 thousand tons of its direct CO2 emissions but also those generated by the visiting public during the festival’s four weekends of presentations by more than 200 home-grown attractions.

The project has 86 MW of installed capacity and generates renewable energy for more than 350 thousand consumers, being registered according to the standards of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

“We are very happy to use the carbon credits issued by our renewable energy generation plants for making the Spanta Festival even more sustainable. Our aim is to accelerate the transition to a carbon neutral world. In this context, we offer solutions so that companies and cities are more sustainable and efficient, optimizing costs with energy and generating fewer emissions”, declares the Communication, Corporate Social Responsibility and Energy Transition Officer at ENGIE in Brasil, Gil Maranhão.
