Manuel Nardi, General Manager of the Societe Monegasque des Eaux (SMEaux), signed this Wednesday, November 14, the Charter of commitment of the National Pact for the Energy Transition. With this strong gesture, the Company is committed to a carbon-free Monaco. 

The ceremony was attended by S.E. Mr Serge Telle, Minister of State, Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Government Counselor-Minister of Equipment, Environment and Urbanism, Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux, Director of the Energy Transition Mission, Frédéric Van Heems, General Manager Véolia Eau France and Olivier Grunberg, Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of the Véolia Eau France General Secretariat.

We are delighted to welcome SMEaux into this ever-growing community, and eco-responsible and virtuous behavior also involves the preservation of resources (…). Like seawater, wastewater can make it possible to heating or cooling our buildings with heat pumps is a solution that SMEaux will apply soon to the water treatment plant in Monaco, and I congratulate you and I also have the pleasure to announce that The Energy Transition Mission will conduct a study of the energy potential of all Monaco wastewater in 2019 to eventually apply this type of project in more buildings,” said Marie-Pierre Gramaglia.

As a reminder, the National Pact, put in place last January, aims at the commitment of the Monegasque Community to achieve the objectives of reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), set at -50% in 2030 compared to 1990 and carbon neutrality in 2050. 

S.A.S. the Sovereign Prince, followed by his Government, were the first signatories of the National Pact, which now has more than 500 signatories. 

In case you did not know, the membership of individuals can now be done via a simplified and digital approach – so eco-responsible.
