It is with great pleasure that we present the first Sustainability Report of the Urca Energia Group.

Sustainability has been part of our DNA since our inception in 2018. Despite being young, we have already achieved solid results, we are signatories of the UN Global Compact, and we have developed policies and protocols in the environmental, social, and governance spheres, ensuring harmony among stakeholders, employees, suppliers, shareholders and society.

This report reinforces our conviction that environmental protection and business success go hand in hand and offer numerous benefits for companies, industries, municipalities and society.

Message from the Board of Directors

Dear shareholders, employees, and partners,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the first Sustainability Report in the history of Urca Energia Group. This document marks an important milestone in our journey towards excellence in corporate responsibility and our ongoing commitment to the generation of renewable energy and sustainable practices.

Our goal is to invest in the present to revolutionize the energy of the future. Our Group was born from the dream of promoting a positive impact on society by supporting Brazilian companies with effective solutions for energy transition. At Gás Verde, we produce biomethane, a 100% renewable fuel; at Urca Gás, we transport this fuel to industries and gas stations, as well as conduct natural gas trading operations; at EVA Energia, we transform environmental liabilities into 100% renewable electric power; and at Urca Trading, we commercialize renewable energy to find the best value for our clients’ money.

Today, we celebrate the concrete results achieved thanks to the combined efforts of our employees, partners, and shareholders committed to a greener, more sustainable, and, of course, more profitable future.

Throughout this Report, you will find detailed information about our environmental, social, and economic performance over 2021 and 2022. The year 2022 was the first year that Gás Verde operated under Urca Energia Group control. The Report’s narrative is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) methodology, consolidating the efforts we made in the last two years since the creation of the ESG Committee – comprised of deputies from the Group’s strategic areas, ensuring the perspective of the entire organization.

The journey towards decarbonization in the national industry is ongoing and challenging. With our team’s dedication and experience in the energy sector, which is key to the success of the company’s planning and operation, we are sure to keep overcoming barriers and achieving even more impressive results in the future.

We thank everyone who is part of this journey, making environment preservation, good business deals, and playing a crucial role in the Brazilian energy transition possible. We believe in a future that is more socially and environmentally responsible. Together, we can build a clean energy-driven world, healthier and more vibrant for future generations.
