Sustainable Reconversion Plans: 3 MSMEs measured their Carbon Footprint

Within the framework of the Local Green Jobs Project, the Carbon Footprint measurements of three MSMEs associated with the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Rosario were completed. This work was possible thanks to funding from the European Union, and it involves Pilot Plans for Sustainable Reconversion of production processes.

In a scenario in which the transition towards a green economy implies major changes not only in the way of producing and marketing goods and services but also in the world of work, the sustainability of MSMEs “must be thought of as a possible project, as an alternative and opportunity for change and learning. If it does not become an empty agenda, something else to do to continue doing the same” (Utrera, 2021, p. 14).

In this way, ALPA Seal supported the benefited companies with the measurement of their Greenhouse Gas emissions. Thus, ARAG Argentina S.A., Industria Gráfica Pagani and Pastas Mulini learned about their environmental indicator along with possible concrete actions they can take to reduce their emissions and contribute to the sustainable reconversion of their production processes.
