PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A Dori Alimentos é uma indústria paulista que por décadas utilizou o óleo xisto como combustível nas caldeiras da fábrica para a produção de amendoim, balas e outros confeitos. O óleo xisto é uma fonte de grande emissão de gases causadores do efeito estufa e, por esta razão, em 2006, determinada a reduzir seu impacto ambiental, a empresa substituiu o óleo xisto, um combustível fóssil, por biomassa renovável. A troca mencionada, além de reduzir as emissões, gerou créditos de carbono e uma produção mais limpa.

Dori achieved a cleaner production after many investments. The factory produces part of the fuel used in the production process by planting eucalyptus at Sítio Ouro Verde. Ash from burning eucalyptus is used as fertilizer in the plantations, as it is rich in potassium and phosphorus. In addition, all residual water from Dori's process is treated and reused in the form of irrigation for the plantations.

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.

“Dori is a company that really takes sustainability as one of the pillars of its growth!”

— Juliano (Dori's environmental chemist)
