Grupo ISA begins its presence at Expo Dubai 2020, offsetting the carbon footprint of the Colombia pavilion

October 07, 2021- Applying innovation and entrepreneurship
to the service of sustainability is one of the objectives that the ISA Group
has set for itself in its 2030 strategy, and it is an example of what it is
taking to Expo Dubai 2020 to represent the country. On this stage, the company
will show the world its leadership in the Latin American energy sector and its
role in the energy transition. It will also present its cutting-edge
initiatives in sustainable development, with which it is making a tangible and
relevant contribution to major causes of global interest, such as climate
change mitigation and the construction of social fabric.

In line with its commitment to protect the planet, and
as an example for other companies, the company, in alliance with Ecopetrol,
will offset the carbon footprint of the entire Colombia Pavilion during the
week of October 3-9, in order to become Net Zero Carbon. This will be
registered through EcoRegistry, the carbon market platform based on blockchain
technology developed by XM, an affiliate of Grupo ISA in Colombia, which allows
the issuance, transfer, and retirement of carbon credits.

The resources obtained through this
compensation will be invested in the conservation project, Cocoman Frontera
Redd+, which works to prevent the deforestation of the forests of the Higher
Community Councils of Novita, located in the department of Chocó in Colombia,
one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. The activities developed with
this funding are: support for forest ranger families, promotion of productive
alternatives to logging, environmental education, conservation of native
species and seedling trees, among other activities of great importance to
protect this important green lung.

Another of the global impact projects with
which Grupo ISA will be presenting at Expo Dubai 2021 is Conexión Jaguar, the
sustainability program with which, together with its technical partners, South
Pole and Panthera, contributes to the conservation of biodiversity, climate
change mitigation, the development of rural communities and the connectivity of
the jaguar’s natural habitats in Latin America.

In addition, the group will be part of the
academic agenda sharing best practices to protect the climate and biodiversity,
making known the scope of Ecogox and EcoRegistry tools that were developed in
Colombia, with a high innovative component and impact on climate change

ISA Group, as a multi-Latin company, will
also have the opportunity to promote the approach of the country and the region
to the Vision 2030 agenda of the United Arab Emirates, a project that, within
its roadmap, seeks to develop sectors such as infrastructure, energy, and clean
technologies, mitigating the risks of exclusive dependence on oil.

“We know that the only way to protect
the planet and leave a world for new generations is by working as a team and
inspiring others. Expo Dubai 2020 is a platform that will allow us to build
alliances, learn from other visions, share our experience and bring best
practices to Latin America,” said Juliana Suso Jaramillo, Chief
Institutional Relations Officer for ISA Group.
