Ituiutaba is a red ceramic industry, located in Minas Gerais, which used native firewood extracted from the Cerrado to feed its ovens until 2008. In order to reduce the environmental impact of its activities, Ituiutaba ceramic started a fuel switching project. Through the use of biomass, such as sawdust and wood chips, to generate energy it has been possible to reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere and to promote actions that benefit the local community and improve the working conditions of employees.
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.
“We have known and supported Sustainable Carbon projects for 5 years, including visits on site. This enabled us to verify the high quality of the projects, and the relevant impacts they have on climate, environment and community."
— Simon Köppen (Head of Carbon Offset Services na ClimatePartner)
