The sustainable business vision developed by Latin America Power -LAP, a renewable energy generation company with a presence in Peru and Chile, has as its central idea to achieve a balance between business development, respect for the environment and contribution to the communities where it operates. .
This is highlighted in its 2021 Sustainability Report, a document that reflects the company’s contributions in terms of economic, social and environmental development in the more than 10 projects it has in different energy sources, such as hydroelectric, wind and solar, and that are coming generating a positive impact in more than 40 communities both in Peru and Chile.
LAP cooperates, through its projects, with more than 341.3 MW of clean energy to the parent companies of both countries, operating specifically in the departments of Junín and Ancash in Peru, and in the regions of Atacama, Coquimbo and La Araucania in Chile. “This sustainability report is a reflection of the work we have been doing since 2011, generating a positive impact in the community because our work benefits the environment and the world in general,” said Diego Hollweck, general manager of Latin America Power.
In Peru, the company seeks to guarantee the use of non-conventional renewable energy resources in the electricity generation matrix, progressively increasing the new requirements in accordance with the supply and demand of the electricity market. Along these lines, its projection aims to reach a 20% share by 2030, with a competitive energy supply, achieving universal access and developing projects with minimal environmental impact and low carbon emissions.
At Latin America Power, sustainability is the guideline for all its actions, which is why, during 2021, the company continued to work to contribute to nine of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations Organization, based on work focused on investment funds with a focus on communities, education for sustainable development, management of local development and climate change with a focus on environmental education.
