For the Concremat Companies, acting sustainably means assuming our economic, social and environmental responsibilities, being aware of and seeking to minimize the impacts associated with our activities. This way, the organization is seeking to identify, disseminate and promote the best practices for sustainability present in its day-to-day business.
SELECTIVE WASTE COLLECTION
The Concremat Companies have implemented selective waste collection at its headquarters, located in Rio de Janeiro, and in the main regional offices in São Paulo and Minas Gerais. All employees are encouraged to separate materials and reduce their consumption of paper, plastic and metal.
REDUCING WASTE GENERATION
Reducing the generation of waste and reducing risks to the environment are permanent demands of the Concremat Companies. The use of substances such as sulfur and xylene has been systematically reduced and sustainable alternatives are being sought.
MONITORING OF WATER AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION
The Concremat Companies make efforts every single day to improve control over its consumption figures, seeking to identify the key sources which consume water and energy in their regional offices. This strategy is key to improving the preparation of action plans with reduction targets.
GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
One of the main challenges of the Concremat Companies is to adopt measures with potential to reduce the impacts generated by the activities of the company and its Greenhouse Gas emissions. One of the initiatives is to reduce travelling by land or air. Face-to-face meetings are gradually being replaced by video conferences, equipment for which has been installed in several offices of the Concremat Companies.
