See it in action
ACEN has piloted the circularity approach in its 120 MW solar plant in Alaminos, Laguna construction site, diverting away from landfills a total of 32,540 kg of plastic collected from the solar panel packaging materials – or the equivalent of about 25 compact size cars – to be upcycled into eco-bricks and utilize in building the solar plant facilities.
ACEN aims to scale up this waste management program and implement it in the company’s project developments in the Philippines, influence our supplier/contractor partners and create a ripple effect towards sustainable development.
Eni’s JUST (Join Us in a Sustainable Transition) Initiative addresses all suppliers to involve them in Eni’s fair and sustainable energy transition process, enhancing environmental protection, economic development, and social growth in the procurement process.
In the qualification phase, sustainability criteria is introduced to assess supplier performance, and in the tender phase, rewarding mechanisms are adopted to encourage suppliers’ best practices. In addition, as part of the JUST initiative, workshops with qualified Eni suppliers are launched to discuss the opportunities for the adoption of circular economy models, sustainability initiatives and lay the foundations for a common sustainable development path (Eni, 2020).
