Babcock Spain collaborates with Ministry of Agriculture
Babcock MCS España is working with the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture (MAGRAMA) to develop a programme where Babcock employees can voluntarily cooperate in reforesting fire‑affected areas.
This initiative will take place in ‘La Granadella’, a natural coastal area in Xabia (Alicante) that was heavily affected by a fire in September 2016, which devastated more than 700 hectares. With the aid of flora micro reserves technicians, the volunteers will help in the reforestation of the affected area, doing the follow‑up of the planting and irrigation during the first year.
This initiative is a part of the programme ‘Babcock MCS España compensates’, a new initiative proposed by the environmental department as a measure against global warming, that includes a record of our carbon footprint which guarantees the voluntary commitment we have to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
