CLEAN ENERGY

Today, half of the energy used in Ledesma for the production of sugar, alcohol, bioethanol, paper, fruits and juice in Jujuy is renewable energy.

Ledesma energy matrix is formed by three sources of energy. Natural gas: part of the demand of natural gas required for the working of the industrial plant comes from Aguaragüe site in the province of Salta where Ledesma has a shareholding of 4%. Biomass: in 2008, due to environmental care reasons and lack of fossil fuels, the incorporation of bioenergy was put under analysis. And in 2010, the “Biomass Project” was launched, and it consists in the generation of energy based on two main sources: sugarcane trash (also called malhoja) and wood.

GEG EMISSIONS AND IMPACT REDUCTION

Since 2007 Ledesma makes an inventory of emissions of Greenhouse Effect Gases (GEG) in its agro-industrial complex in Jujuy. This allows for the assessment of risks and opportunities related to climate change, as well as for the implementation of programs for the reduction of emissions in each phase of the production process. The standard used for these measurements is the GHG Protocol of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the World Resources Institute.

Also, in compliance with the Plan of Territorial Order, Ledesma keeps 100,000 wild ha in Jujuy under conservation, this territory works as “carbon deposits” since the atmospheric carbon absorbed by photosynthesis may remain there for very long periods of time.
