Santos Brasil promotes internal and external actions for
environmental conservation and education. Its main purpose is to
reduce its activity impact on the environment.
Learn about several programs:
The Company promotes the selective garbage collection in its
operation units. In effect for ten years, the program has an 85%
reuse rate and aims at awareness for the gradual reduction of waste
Santos Brasil has performed an inspection in its Greenhouse
Effect Gas (GEG) emissions at the Tecon Santos and in its logistic
units. In 2010, it will start feasibility studies for
neutralization, reduction or compensation projects regarding the
emissions of these gases.
The Company continually promotes new actions to contribute for
environmental conservation and education among its employees. The
annual Integrated Corporate Health, Safety, Quality and Environment
Week aims at expanding its employees' knowledge through educational
lectures and competitions.
Protection to the Southern
The Company supports the conservation of the southern right
whale, a species found in the area of the Tecon Imbituba, during
the breeding period. In a partnership with the Projeto Baleia
Franca (Southern Right Whale Project), an NGO that carries out
important whale conservation work in that region, we promote a
visual monitoring program allowing the implementation of expansion
projects at the terminal without harming the species.
