ACWA Power joins South Pole’s climate action campaign, helps make NYC carbon neutral

ACWA Power joins South Pole's climate action campaign, makes New York City carbon neutral for an additional 15 minutes. ACWA Power joins South Pole's #LetsActNow climate action campaign which made the City of New York climate neutral for one hour during Climate Week, thus adding an additional 15 minutes of city-wide carbon neutrality. The private developer, owner and operator of power generation projects in the Middle East and Northern African region has donated Gold Standard carbon credits from its project in Morocco for this.

"As the City of New York becomes the capital of the world during the UN's General Assembly, ACWA Power is delighted to contribute to a carbon neutral New York by delivering the necessary carbon credits from our Khalladi project in Morocco, one of the leading countries contributing to a 1.5-degree future," says Paddy Padmanathan, CEO, ACWA Power.

"What the "adopt a highway" program is achieving in cleaning up specific stretches of roads all over the United States via community participation and volunteerism, the #LetsActNow campaign could help clean up the climate by making communities of every scale climate neutral for specific periods of time. We are excited to find out how big #LetsActNow can become and welcome ACWA Power's enthusiastic support," says Ingo Puhl, a co-founder of South Pole.

The Khalladi project is a 120 MW wind farm in Morocco, the country with some of the most ambitious climate targets in the world.
