PROJECT DESCRIPTION

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.

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)
