Sustainability as a means of transport
Sustainability mobility data
With our sights set on a sustainable future, we provide our clients with bold and innovative engineering solutions that ensure financial, social, and environmental sustainability. To collaborate in achieving goals such as an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050, compared to 1990 levels, its is necessary to move gradually and sustainably towards a society where technologies and clean transport play a fundamental role.
In Latin America, countries like Colombia or Chile have signed up to this challenge. IDOM is working in these countries at intuitional and business level, collaborating to reach this goal. In the Medellin Metro project, the principle of sustainable mobility based on clean energy was applied, generating important social benefit. Innovation has become a key tool for the growth and sustainability of this type of transport in the city. IDOM was called on to make it happen. We have worked on projects such as the AV80 tram, the Ayacucho Tram, as well as the design of the expansion of the Tulio Ospina depot and workshops.
The mobility solutions incorporated in the Medellin Metro means that an amount of diesel equivalent to filling 110 Olympic-sized swimming pools has not been used. In addition, emission of almost 23,000t of pollutants and more than 750,000t of CO2 have not been released into the atmosphere.
