We believe that balance between the economic, social and environmental aspects in managing our assets has positive impacts on the environment where we act and in the sector as a whole, in the short and long term.
We have worked on different fronts to implement effective actions to manage our assets, maintaining our operations and respecting the environment and neighboring communities.
The concessionaires we manage hold regular environmental licensing, maintaining the most stringent standards of management and compliance with legal obligations. The size of our ventures means that we have a variety of obligations to fulfill, including mitigating and compensatory measures.
Environmental Education, Social Communication and Campaigns to Raise Awareness about fires, all included in the Company’s Stakeholder Engagement Plan;
Animal Monitoring, Monitoring of erosive processes; Forestry
Replacement and Environmental compensation.
We understand that a view of the environment where we are is crucial to keeping our asset operating regularly and avoiding environmental incidents, which is why we prioritize preventive actions and monitoring.
Our social and environmental programs are aimed at providing access to stakeholders through dialog and educational reporting on listening channels. This means that in addition to initiatives in communities where we operate, we have an Ombudsman available to everyone.
