Gabriela de Valle from the Coordination of Sustainability and Climate Change of IMPLAN presented the fruitful cooperation between the municipal institution and the City Lab Saltillo of the Morgenstadt Global Smart Cities Initiative (MGI) at the first “Foro de Innovación 4.0” in Saltillo, Mexico.

With the exposition “Energy Efficiency: Challenges in the Industry Facing Climate Change”, Ms. de Valle shared with the audience the public policy measures currently undertaken by IMPLAN in climate change mitigation and adaption. In this context, MGI contributed to the assessment of the CO2-emmsissions in the energetic sector in the city. The initiative took also part in the development of the Municipal Climate Action Plan (PACMUN) and the creation of the “Energy Efficiency Award” that recognizes best practices in energy efficiency in the industry. Also, the MGI pilot project “Blue-Green Infrastructure” is being implemented in the northwest of Saltillo together with IMPLAN.
