Cerâmica Menegalli is a medium-sized ceramic factory in situated in the heart of the eastern Amazon region, in São Miguel do Guamá, Pará – Brazil.
The factory produces several types of products for the local construction industry. In July of 2007, the Menegalli stopped using native, Amazonian timber as fuel for its kilns and started using renewable biomass instead.
The choice to switch to a more sustainable production process has contributed to both a reduced negative impact on the Amazon Rainforest as well as allowed for an investment in environmental, social and economic sustainability initiatives.
Though investments are still made in the factory using the revenues from the credits, nowadays Edson, the entrepreneur at Menegalli, is much more concerned with making investments in his community.Download PDF
