      A.3Description of mitigation action
      In Chile, the promotion of cleaner production is promoted and coordinated by the National Council for Clean Production (NCCP), an institution under the Ministry of Economy. One of the goals of NCCP for 2020 is to contribute to reducing greenhouse gases through its main management instrument, the Clean Production Agreement (CPA). This voluntary agreement is negotiated and signed by the representative of the industrial organization on behalf of the companies in a particular productive sector and a public administration sector. The agreement is intended to implement clean production through goals and actions within a specified period. This instrument is backed by specific national legislation (DS No. 20416/2010), and by the National Standards Institute, which has developed a set of rules (NCh2796-Of2003, NCh2797-Of2009, NCh2807-Of2009, NCh2825-Of2009) in order to create the framework for its creation, implementation and certification. A CPA is a standard that sets goals and specific actions to be implemented by a productive sector, mainly based on the best available techniques in the market. This instrument is funded by the government of Chile, which will financing about 70% of the costs covering the sustainability diagnosis of the sector, internal audits, technical assistance, training, certification, impact study and overall coordination of the CPA. The remaining 30% is funded by the sector, specifically the private companies who sign the CPAs. Nevertheless, the funding granted by the NCCP does not provide support for the purchase and acquisition of technology. The Chilean Government would like to thank the UNEP-RISO Centre for their support in the preparation of this NAMA template.

  • F Estimated emission reductions
    • F.1Amount

      This amount has to be in units of MtCO2e (Million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) or MtCO2e/yr (Million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year)

      F.3Additional information (e.g. if available, information on the methodological approach followed)
  • G Other indicators
    • G.1Other indicators of implementation
      The methodology for estimating the potential emission reduction employed by the NCCP begins with a survey to collect information on GHG emissions prior to the implementation of a CPA. The NCCP collects information from participating companies related to solid and liquid waste; transportation; energy and water consumption; energy use and fertilizer use and uses this information to continuously monitor GHG emissions from each company. This allows for the calculation of indicators that are presented in the final impact report, once the CPA has been completed.
  • H Other relevant information
    • H.1Other relevant information including co-benefits for local sustainable development
      The NCCP is an organ of the Chilean State that has the mission of promoting cleaner production as a strategy of efficient use of resources, the innovation in clean technologies and environmental responsibility contributing to the competitiveness and sustainable development of the Chilean companies, especially Small and Medium Enterprises. In this context the NCCP role is as an executing agency of policies, strategies and programs that contribute to a low- carbon, sustainable economy; also as an instrument to promote the use of renewable energies and reducing emissions, by leveraging its direct and close relation with all the economic sectors of the country. The CPA is the main instrument for managing the contribution to the sustainable development of the country, through the monitoring, recording, verifying and certifying the following indicators before and after a CPA is implemented: Economic/Productivity: • Productivity • Salaries and benefits • Investment in research, development and innovation • Economic relations with suppliers • Savings from reduced consumption • Time payback investment Environmental: • Energy consumption • Raw material use • Water consumption • Emissions • Effluents • Waste • GHG • Transportation • Providers • Products and services • Land use • Biodiversity • Law Compliance Social: • Exposure to pollutants • Hygiene and food safety • Staff training • The relationship between companies and the community • Number of complaints from the community Additionally, it is important to note that this is a NAMA for recognition, however in the future, could be facilitated by some type of new market mechanism yet to be defined.
