“We are delighted to welcome SMEaux into this ever-growing community, and eco-responsible and virtuous behaviour 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, set up last January, aims at the commitment of the Monegasque Community to achieve the objectives of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, set at -50% in 2030 compared to 1990 and carbon neutrality in 2050.

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