Some of the main authorities of Huelva, together with those responsible for the company Magnon Green Energy, have participated in the event ‘Questions for the planet’ organized by the company on the occasion of the International Day of Energy Saving. In this way, the company wanted to create a critical and different space in which to respond to concerns about the sustainable future of society, represented by fifty secondary school students who have practiced the most committed journalism for one day.
In two journalistic spaces, one for the radio and the other for the written press, created by the Huelva Press Association, the mayor of Huelva, Gabriel Cruz, has been made available for questions from fifty schoolchildren; the regional delegate for Economy, Finance and European Funds and for Industrial Policy and Energy of the Junta de Andalucía, Lucía Núñez; the Provincial Deputy for the Environment, Rosa Tirador; the head of the Environment Division of the Port of Huelva, Rocío López, and the first deputy mayor of San Juan del Puerto, Miguel Beltrán; in addition to those responsible for the Huelva plant of Magnon Green Energy.
During the event, the entire group of students was also able to participate in fun dynamics designed to promote sustainable daily behavior and to become aware of the importance of the individual impact of each person on the sustainability of our society. With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations as the axis, boys and girls between 11 and 14 years old have learned about global challenges and have proposed their particular responsible actions to improve the future of the planet.
It has been a day full of anecdotes and, above all, full of hope, exactly the goal of the Magnon company event, which has thus wanted to draw attention to the importance for society of an event such as the one celebrated today. The company, leader in generating renewable energy with biomass, thus endorses its firm commitment to Sustainability and the SDGs, to the decarbonisation of our electricity system and to a fair energy transition.
Personal and organizational commitment, the circular economy, continuous improvement and innovation have been the most repeated keys today in the conversations fostered in the journalistic spaces created for the event, values that also mark Magnon’s sustainability policy.
Magnon Green Energy has three biomass-based renewable energy generation plants in Huelva, totaling 137 MW of installed power, capable of supplying the electricity needs of more than 750,000 people.
