The program seeks to promote corporate environmental sustainability by designing and developing projects with a positive impact on the environment.
Corporate Sustainability implies that a company must consider the environment and the community in which it operates as key stakeholders for decision-making.
The company should not only focus on profitability but will also consider the impact and value that each decision will have on the environment and the community in short, medium and long term.
The focus is on the legacy that each company is passing on to future generations.
To support the development of an ecosystem of companies that understand sustainability as a fundamental strategy to guarantee both the future of the company and the planet.
The program includes both specific projects and cross-cutting initiatives across all Fibras’ projects, ensuring that the focus on sustainability is maintained at all times.
For example, projects with impact on any of the following topics will be promoted:
- Climate change
- Change in the energy matrix
- Water use
- Biodiversity, conservation and/or land use change
- Waste management
- Environmental education
Environmental sustainability is a part of corporate sustainability. To achieve sustainability in its broad sense, Fibras will work on both environmental and social initiatives that are transversal to all of its projects.
In this context, the environmental program will be in charge of:
– Defining the strategy for measuring environmental impact, to be communicated and implemented in all of Fibras’ programs. The impact of each project must be communicated based on the Sustainable Development Goals.
– Ensure that these impacts are measurable and verifiable, preferably following international standards (e.g. GHG protocol for Carbon Footprint calculation).
