Investing in the future means acting every day to leave a sustainable legacy to the next generation. Therefore, we have developed policies and protocols in the environmental, social and governance areas to integrate stakeholders, employees, suppliers, shareholders and our local community to create a positive impact in the environment and society.
Guided by universal principles in the areas of labor, human rights, environment, governance and transparency, the group is an UN Global Compact signatory committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We believe actions speak louder than words. That’s why we invest in real and transparent actions to protect the environment and to maintain an honest relationship with employees, clients, suppliers and the whole society.
Formed by a multidisciplinary team, with professionals from HR, governance, commercial, operations, financial, engineering, shared services and independent consultants, the ESG Committee is responsible for establishing, implementing and keeping the goals and challenges contained in Urca Energy Group’s conduct policies and for measuring the impact in the environmental, social and governance areas.
Also, every policy follows an implementation plan, according to the Integrity and Compliance Program, so we can involve and train the whole staff members.
Besides governance, other initiatives are under development:
Partnering with NINT, Latin America’s biggest ESG consulting and evaluation company, we’re implementing our materiality matrix in 2022 for Gás Verde and later for the other companies.
Besides mapping the source of emissions, the inventory will help us quantify, monitor and register Gás Verde’s activities emission sources (soon to expanded to our other companies). Gás Verde’s inventory was already submitted to the GHG Protocol, the biggest GHG emissions verification program in the world. For that, we’re counting with the BlockC partnership, the biggest carbon projects company in Brazil.
The plan will offer opportunities for social investments and incentive laws for Urca Energia Group. Therefore, we’re partners with Instituto da Criança, an organization specialized in managing, implementing and supporting social projects.
By correctly managing the urban and agribusiness residue, we prevent GHG emissions in the atmosphere and also create products according to the circular economy. These renewable solutions, such as biofuel and clean electric energy, are the sustainable and economic replacements for fossil fuels and are paving the way to the energetic transition of several companies in Brazil.
