Supervielle obtains the sustainable certification
Buenos Aires, August 5, 2020, Grupo Supervielle S.A. (NYSE: SUPV) (BYMA: SUPV), ('Supervielle' or the 'Company') a universal financial services group headquartered in Argentina with a nationwide presence, announced that one of its subsidiaries, Banco Supervielle, obtained the certification for achieving energy efficiency thanks to the use of solar panels installed in its commercial offices in the neighborhood of Caballito, Buenos Aires. The certification was granted by Secretaría de Energía de la Nación. Through this innovation, all solar energy that is not used returns to the grid, which generates a continuous and renewable cycle. The installed equipment is made up of 16 solar panels that deliver 5.2kW of power, which translates into 20% energy savings for the branch and an energy contribution to the grid on weekends.
Supervielle headquarters building has been running on 100% renewable energy since last March. In 2018 Supervielle inaugurated its first sustainable branch in the Province of Neuquén that works with solar energy and has an absorbent green terrace that allows the retention of approximately 1,320 liters of rainwater to contribute to the city's drainage system, avoiding saturation of the rainwater network and recomposing the green lung that each plot needs.
Atilio Dell'Oro Maini, Director of Grupo Supervielle, stated 'at Supervielle we work to adopt clean energy technologies and infrastructures in order to continue increasing the proportion of our operational electricity needs that are met from renewable energy sources. This certification represents an important step in that direction and reaffirms our commitment to the responsible use of energy.'
Esteban D'Agostino, Chief of Operations and Central Services, assured 'this recognition gives us energy to continue proposing solutions that contribute to improving environmental conditions and at the same time set a precedent for other companies to follow on this path of environmental awareness.'
