Soltec team’s Sustainability Plan

The ‘orange’ squad presents a long-term project to compensate its carbon footprint, with actions already underway: 100 % renewable energies and electric self-consumption; cleaner vehicles; and projects to care for the environment.

In a world in the midst of a climate emergency, in which human beings are trying to alleviate the planet’s consequences of the deterioration, Soltec Team proposes, from the summer of 2024 onwards, a series of to become the first 100 % sustainable cycling team at the highest level in the world. This is in line with the sustainable development goals set for 2030 by the United Nations UN.

As a first step, the company that manages the equipment sponsored by Soltec, a renewable energy company, has measured its carbon footprint. The Greenhouse Gases generated by the team’s vehicles and the consumption of its facilities produce the equivalent of 145,000 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year. Soltec Team aims to compensate and gradually reduce these emissions, with a series of actions already underway.

Soltec Team is committed to using 100 % renewable energies for its headquarters in Spain and the USA. The U.S. will also invest in self-consumption, with the installation of solar panels. Another major effort will involve replacing its fleet of Skoda vehicles with new hybrid cars, with which it will reduce its CO2 emissions.

Soltec Team has conveyed to its members during the non-competitive period the importance of this Sustainability Plan, and will also bet on that and will also focus on projects linked to sustainable mobility and the care of its environment. All this, with the aim of obtaining the Seal of Recognition of the Ministry of Ecological Transition (MITECO) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The company headed by Nino Oliver thus aspires to be at the forefront of cycling, which has always been classified as a ‘green sport’, but whose activities have had an impact on the environment that it will now try to compensate. A bet implemented by the renewable energy company Soltec, which is very committed to the environment.
