The Public Environmental Management Company Ihobe once again presents its annual report, which details its main achievements and activities for the year. During 2011, the organisation has made important strides in helping establish a culture of environmental sustainability in the Basque Autonomous Community. The report also sets out the core values around which the public body's projects and services in 2012 will be based. These include employment, governance, citizenship, competitiveness and information.
Ihobe’s annual report is presented under the slogan
more sustainable future is possible” and lists the milestones which
were achieved by the public organisation in 2011.
Some of the main activities which it carried out
include the fulfilment of its role as technical secretary of the Basque
Sustainable Development Strategy – EcoEuskadi 2020, and the
presentation of the “Green
jobs and markets 2020” report, which discusses the role of Basque industry
in helping create a sustainable economy.
An important achievement highlighted in Ihobe's
annual report for 2011 is the birth of the “Tak
21” application, which is used for measuring the global quality of
Local Agendas 21. The creation of the Basque
Ecodesign Center, which is an institution promoting innovative
eco-design projects, has also been a success. Yet another important
milestone came in the form of the double certification in Innovation Management
and Technological Watch, awarded by AENOR. Indeed, Ihobe is the first public
body in the Basque Country to attain it.
Through this document, Ihobe reveals the new mission
and values of its team members, and the challenge which it has set itself for
the year 2020: "to add the maximum value possible as a team and the
