PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Bandeira and Capelli are two factories located in the state of Alagoas. The combined ceramics have around 150 employees working in the production of tiles, bricks and structural ceramic products. Seeking to bring more sustainable practices to the local construction industry, Mr. Albuquerque abandoned the common practice and switched from non-renewable kiln fuel and native wood to renewable biomass such as bamboo, coconut husk, cashew shavings, sawdust, mesquite and sustainable wood.

CHILD'S DREAM

At the end of 2012, Mr. Frederico, owner of Cerâmica Bandeira e Capelli, started to support the “Sonho de Criança” project. The aim of the project is to encourage leisure and recreation activities among children in the community and keep them away from street violence. One of the initiatives was the opening of a football school open 24 hours a day on the ceramics football field. In addition, the field is fully available for use by the community.

SOCIALCARBON Standard Performance

The hexagon demonstrates the continuous improvement of the project during all verification periods. The Social Carbon Standard encourages the reinvestment of a percentage of the income from the carbon credits in socioenvironmental benefits, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Social Carbon: far beyond carbon, it is social equality.

"Spending an afternoon with them is a great pleasure, and knowing they are protected from street violence here is very gratifying."

— RonaldoSantos (Soccer school coach)
