Carbon Research

Pontes is very much aware of regional and global climate changes. Therefore, the company has been working intensively to contribute to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and to the increase of carbon capture.
The extraction of carnauba straw, in addition to being a vital economic activity for the Northeastern region of Brazil, can also boost carbon capture by stimulating the growth of the palms leaves caused by the extractive pruning it self.

Through our Institute Pontes para o Crescimento (Bridges for Growth), we promote a continuous program of educational and healthcare initiatives, and good manufacturer practices, ensuring that the rights of Carnauba workers are respected and their standard of living raised.
