Social and Environmental Responsibility
Nutrire is socially and environmentally aware, so it always seeks the best sustainable alternatives and works in the communities where it is inserted, inspiring people to change their attitudes and behavior. The company is firmly committed with environmental sustainability.
Nutrire products bear the Renewable Company seal, certified by Ludfor Energia Ltda due to reduction of CO2 emissions. The electricity consumed in its manufacturing plant comes from a clean, fully renewable source that is not harmful to environment.
In the performance of its activities and in the consumption of electricity in the industrial park, it has reduced 1,166.08 tons of CO2, as informed in the Certificate of Reduction of Emission of Greenhouse Gases, which is equivalent to:
- 8,311 tree seedlings, retained for 20 years;
- 2,989 light gasoline vehicles, traveling 500 km;
- 844 road transportations of 1 ton of cargo per 500 km;
- 128 tons of paper / cardboard sent to landfill.
The company also has the green label ‘Eu sou Eco (I am Eco)’, issued by Plastiweber Embalagens Sustentáveis that certifies Nutrire for having used 20.90 tons of recycled plastic packaging, produced with wind energy, renewable raw material and sustainable practices, resulting in several environmental benefits. Some of them:
- Reduction of 31.98 T of greenhouse gases;
- Reduction of 25,498 Lt of oil consumption;
- Reduction of 113.91 MWatt of electricity consumption;
- Reduction of 20.90 T of plastic waste in landfill;
- Reduction of 156.33 m³ in water consumption in the total of this process.
Nutrire is also a member of the Associação de Logística Reversa de Embalagens [Reverse Packaging Logistics Association] (Aslore). The entity is made up of industries that use packaging and aims to ensure the environmentally appropriate destination of the packaging through the adaptation, training and expansion of the productive capacity of the cooperatives of collectors, strengthening voluntary delivery points, and investment in awareness campaigns, besides making consumers aware of the correct separation and destination of packaging.
It also relies on an internal environmental management program, named "Good Environmental Practices", which involves guiding employees through compliance with the current environmental standards. It also invests in disposal of its wastes and scrap to co-processing, using the transformation of these materials to furnace supply, avoiding that wastes are discarded in landfill, taking into account the National Policy on Solid Wastes (Law 12.305/2010) and contributing to sustainability.
In addition to concern for environmental issues, Nutrire develops social projects. We can emphasize "Cãoterapia" [Dog Therapy], with students of Apae, performed with the support of professionals of partner schools and trainers. This method assists in the social and emotional development of students. "Cãominhada" [Walk with Dog], an event that involves the community and also raises funds to be donated to animal protection NGOs.
