AFRY is committed to supporting Chilean industry in meeting its sustainability goals with a focus on the UN 2030 Agenda
The Chilean industrial sector plays an important role in the sustainable development and ESG agenda through its sustainability goals, which directly impact Chile's performance in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
Sustainability in the industrial sector is mainly related to improving operational efficiency with the objective of reducing water consumption, lowering or zeroing the emission of greenhouse gases, reducing the emission of pollutants into water and air, using minimal fuel fossil fuels and optimize the use of natural resources through circular economy and high performance in pollution prevention and control. In addition, the well-being of the internal public and the local communities where these companies are located are also a focus of sustainability in the industrial sector.
“With global expertise in sectors such as Energy, Infrastructure and Process Industry, AFRY has been helping Chilean companies in the industrial sector to advance their sustainability goals with innovative solutions supported by digitization”, Rodrigo Brisighello, Head of Business of the Process Industry Division, AFRY Chile, says.
AFRY, a European engineering, design and consulting company with global operations and which has been present in Chile since 2015, works to help industries define and implement appropriate measures to improve operational efficiency and so that sustainability goals can be achieved at every stage of its transformational journey, either through services for brownfield projects or through multidisciplinary engineering services for greenfield projects.
“Our in-depth knowledge of the industrial value chain allows us to suggest state-of-the-art solutions in terms of sustainability. For this, AFRY Chile counts with a local team of professionals who are supported by a global network of experts with more than 16 thousand employees,” adds Rodrigo Brisighello, highlighting the company's mission of accelerating the transition to a more sustainable society.
Part of a network of more than 50 offices worldwide, AFRY Chile operates in all phases of industrial projects, from the preparation of environmental impact and economic feasibility studies, basic engineering and detailed engineering and also in the EPCM (Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management) and owner engineering, providing cutting-edge solutions for the areas of infrastructure, industry and energy, with services linked to globalization and urbanization, digitization, climate change and sustainability.
