On World Environment Day, we wish to share with all of you one of the initiatives we have adopted to contribute to this very important topic: the use of clean energy. The terminals of Itaqui, Suape, Aratu and part of the Santos terminal have migrated to the free energy market, that is, they began to be supplied with renewable energy from small hydropower plants and wind, solar and biomass plants at the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021.
The migration aims to contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable energy matrix, in addition to bringing cost reduction and energy efficiency to the terminals.
In just a few months, we have already reduced our emissions by more than 58.83 t/CO2e. This reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is equivalent to the planting of 398 trees in 30 years.
We are aware of our responsibility and potential to contribute to the advancement of the best ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) practices, and for this reason, we have been on a path to follow this commitment in an even more structured way.
We are also structuring a strategic sustainability plan that will bring initiatives, goals and indicators for the coming years.
