Our emission reduction objective

In 2011, we have exceeded our annual emissions reduction target in tons of CO2 eq, achieving over 85% of the 2005-2013 strategic objective.

Repsol continues to pursue the long term objective to reduce 2.5 MtCO2 compared to the business as usual scenario, between 2005 and 2013. The annual reduction target for 2011, approved by the Executive Committee, was 320,200 tons. Thanks to actions verified under to the ISO 14064 standard, we have surpassed this target by achieving a reduction of 622,300 t of CO2.
