Dori Alimentos is a São Paulo industry that manufactures peanuts, candies and other confectionery. Over decades, the company used shale oil as fuel in the factory’s boilers, a source of large emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs). In 2006, determined to reduce its environmental impact, Dori’s plants located in Marília/SP and Rolândia/PR exchanged the use of fossil fuel for renewable biomass. Thus, in addition to reducing emissions, Dori generated carbon credits and cleaner production.
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)
