Located in Tacaimbó, Pernambuco State, Barro Forte factory produces bricks which are sold on the local civil construction market. Up until 2008, the factory used 1,900 m³/ month of native firewood from the Caatinga, a uniquely Brazilian biome, to fuel the kilns which produce the ceramic pieces. As of 2008, the company’s Management chose to produce sustainably and invested in equipment for the fuel switching process.
Since then, the ovens have used sustainable biomass, which has allowed the factory to reduce its GHG emissions while generating carbon credits. The factory’s sustainability initiatives improved working conditions for the 130 employees and involve the surrounding community, which benefits from the sustainable development strategy implemented by the factory.Download PDF
