Caramuru’s sustainable initiatives
Support raw material suppliers to meet global standards, ensuring sustainable and traceable products.
Traceability and sustainability in raw material origination:
Guarantee and safety of the origin of the raw material, which meets socio-environmental criteria, in particular Brazilian environmental legislation, with an emphasis on the public commitment to zero deforestation, in the Amazon biome since 2008, and in the Cerrado biome and others since 2020. In addition, the company does not source raw material from producers involved in deforestation, occupation of indigenous or quilombola lands, forced labor or minors. It also does not accept products from protected areas, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Ramsar Wetlands or High Value Conservation Areas (HCV).
Production of biodiesel:
Totally clean and renewable biofuel that replaces fossil sources with organic matter.
Support to family farming:
Promotion and technical assistance to family farmers, generating income and social inclusion.
SPC (Soy Protein Concentrate) Production:
Meal of vegetable origin that replaces fishmeal in aquaculture. A renewable source that reduces fish capture for feed formulation.
Energy production from renewable fuel, which has less environmental impact as it reduces CO emissions two when compared to thermoelectric. It also allows a less dependence on energy generated by hydroelectric plants, as it produces 70% of the energy consumed by industrial plants.
Soy Ethanol Production:
Use of technology from soy molasses to use the raw material with high energy efficiency. The Sorriso Unit, in Mato Grosso, is one of the first plants in the world to produce ethanol from soy on a commercial scale, in addition to adding value to the most important commodity for the country, introducing soy as a new raw material for production of fuel.
Waste Generation Management:
Proper disposal of solid waste, continuous monitoring of atmospheric emissions and treatment of liquid effluents in 100% of industrial processes.
