The construction of a wind farm in Morocco

1. to construction of of a wind farm in the Tangier-Tetouan region of Morocco

This project is certified Gold Standard CER

This wind energy project in northern Morocco increases the proportion of renewable energy in the national grid, while contributing to the overall sustainable development of the region. The wind farm comprises 40 turbines with a nominal unit capacity of three megawatts, for a total capacity of 120 megawatts. It produces on average 296 megawatt-hours per year with a load factor of 100%, which are fed into the national grid. The project contributes significantly to reducing the share of electricity produced from fossil fuels in Morocco and contributes to reducing the country's dependence to 28,17% on imports of coal, petroleum products and natural gas. . Using cutting-edge technology, the project promotes the development of wind energy and encourages investments in renewable energies in Morocco. One of the main objectives of the project, besides reducing greenhouse gases, is to strengthen the role of women in local communities. It improves their social and economic situation and is therefore awarded the “W +” standard.

5 - Gender equality: Many women in rural communities have never attended school, more than 80% of them cannot read or write. With the support of the project, four agricultural cooperatives and two craft cooperatives for women are being created and corresponding training courses are offered.

7 - Clean and affordable energy: Diversification of Morocco's national energy supply, reduction of dependence on imported fossil fuels.

8 - Decent work and economic growth: The direct and indirect employment opportunities for the construction and operation of the wind farm help to reduce the unemployment rate, which is particularly high in rural areas.

100carbon img9

9 - Industry, innovation and infrastructure: The project facilitates the transfer of modern and clean technologies and promotes the strengthening of local capacities in wind power production.

17 - Partnerships for the achievement of objectives: Our long-term support makes it possible to carry out sustainable development projects in the South.

 

Protecting a tropical forest in Peru

Offsetting Azura's CO2e emissions is reflected in the Group's support for two strong projects, in line with its values.

2. A project in Tambopata, Peru, which enables 400 families to protect 300 hectares of rainforest through the sustainable cultivation of Brazil nuts.

This project is VCS and CCBS Gold Level certified.

In this project, families work together to protect the Amazon rainforest, which is their livelihood and habitat for countless animal and plant species, from deforestation. Thanks to this project, families receive land rights and therefore sustainable sources of income, thanks to the cultivation of Brazil nuts for example. Illegal logging thus becomes less attractive. Smallholder farmers receive micro-credits, marketing and transport support, and even advice on further processing possibilities, such as soap and oil production.
