Odebrecht Agroindustrial has released the latest report on its Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GGE) and the results are quite positive. The evaluation, which covers the 2014/2015 Harvest year shows that the Business has sustainability as one of its main pillars.

The emissions, relative to production, to processing and to transport and raw materials in the 2014/2015 Harvest was 1.3 million tons of CO2 equivalent, but as the Business captured more gases than permitted in its production process, the year ended with a positive balance of 3.9 million tons of CO2 equivalent.

“The data is of great importance to us, as it proves that we contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions on a national scale", says Mônica Alcântara, Executive in charge of Sustainability.

The inventory reflects the commitment made by the Odebrecht Group during the COP-21, The Climate Change Conference held in Paris in December 2015, that brought together 158 countries as well as public and private institutions, to sign a new global deal with targets for reductions in Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
