Assunção ceramic factory is located in Aquiraz municipality, Ceará State, 25 kilometres south of the capital city Fortaleza. The factory employs 56 people and produces two million bricks per month.
For many years, the factory used firewood taken from the Caatinga biome as fuel to fire its ceramic pieces, exacerbating deforestation in the biome, which is the second most threatened biome in Brazil. To avoid this negative impact, the company invested in equipment to switch from native firewood to renewable biomass, such as coconut husks.
The result was a reduction of GHG emissions and consequent generation of carbon credits. Furthermore, the money from the sale of carbon credits allowed the factory to develop projects that promote sustainable development in the region.Download PDF
