Thanks to the carbon project, Buenos Aires ceramic factory is investing in better worker conditions for the safety and well-being of the employees. The factory guarantees the correct use of Personal Protection Equipment and provides occupational health programs. “We believe that a good worker is a happy and healthy one, and we look after our employees’ health”, states Sr. Oliva, the factory manager.
Located in the city of Buenos Aires, in rural Pernambuco state, this ceramic factory is a highlight of the regional sector due to its investment in new sustainability technology. For many years, Buenos Aires used native firewood from the Caatinga biome as fuel for production. In 2010, the factory began a project to switch from non-renewable fuel – native wood – to renewable biomass, such as glycerine, mesquite (Nahuatl mizquitl) wood and sustainably managed wood.
Choosing increased sustainability also meant reduced GHG emissions, allowing Buenos Aires factory to enter into the international carbon market. According to the business owner, Mr Rodolpho Cunha Neto, the income from carbon credit sales will be used to promote sustainable development in the local community.
