Through our Institute Pontes para o Crescimento (Bridges for Growth) we promote initiatives designed to protect and advance the human rights and living standards of those working in the Carnauba supply chain, and to encourage the development of the rural communities of our region. Institute Pontes para o Crescimento also focuses on support and protection of the Caatinga Biome.

Our commitment to socio-environmental responsibility has resulted in our being recognized internationally as a benchmark of sustainability in the sector.
