Carbon Neutral & Circularity

Commitments

BEYOND CARBON AND

WASTE REDUCTION

 

  • Renewable Energy:

    100% renewable energy in the Ceará and Piauí operations by 2023, reducing carbon emissions to the atmosphere.

  • Circularity and Zero Waste

    Maximum reutilisation, reuse and recycling of waste, avoiding waste disposal, avoiding also garbage disposal and the carbon emissions of materials at the end of its lifespans.

     

  • Carbon Neutral

    The only company of its sector in the world to measure the CO2 emissions of its entire operation and to be Carbon Neutral, (Published and Verified), according to the GHG Protocol Brazil method. To improve the measurement of indirect emissions to ensure Zero Carbon, including in scope 3.
