Maguari is a brick factory located in Nazaré da Mata municipality, Pernambuco State, Brazil, supplying the regional civil construction industry. In the past the company collected firewood from the Caatinga biome as fuel for firing its products. As of 2008, the factory began a carbon credit project, which consists of switching non-renewable fuel for renewable alternatives, such as mesquite (Nahuatl mizquitl) wood, sugarcane briquettes, sustainably managed wood and wood residues.
Since the project’s implementation, the factory has reduced its atmospheric GHG emissions and begun investing in modernizing the factory. Furthermore, Maguari reinvests the income from carbon credits into regional sustainable development programs.Download PDF
