Prati-Donaduzzi Group has more than a robust future planning. It is committed. Through sustainable practices, it prepares the way toward the future. The proof is in the certification received this year on reducing the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, the main cause of the greenhouse effect.
A study found that Prati-Donaduzzi by itself in 2019 prevented the emission of 3,357.20 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). To neutralize these emissions, it would be necessary to plant 23,500 trees in a 30-year reforestation project.
To avoid the release of CO2, the pharmaceutical industry uses the green energy from renewable sources, such as wind (wind force), solar (light and heat from the sun) and biomass (organic matter).
The initiative received a certificate from Comerc Energia and Sinerconsult that adopt a calculation methodology developed in the United States by the World Resources Institute (WRI). The method used by the institutions follows the same line used by companies, NGOs and governments around the world.
In line with the mission of providing health and well-being, the pharmaceutical company has great concern for the environment. “Energy from renewable sources is one of the actions that demonstrate seriousness with future generations. Our growth is always sustainable”, emphasizes the engineering manager at Prati-Donaduzzi, Fernando Zimmermann.
Thinking about this same ecological line, Centralpack - packaging industry, which is part of Prati-Donaduzzi Group, also makes use of green energy. Last year, the company reduced over 336.52 tons of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to 2,356 trees.
According to the electrical engineer at Prati-Donaduzzi, Renan Augusto Taborda, the pharmaceutical company is considered a free consumer and could choose between the conventional or green energy modality, but opted for the green source consumption. Centralpack is considered a special consumer.
According to the director of Centralpack, Gimenes Silva, the recognition of these sustainable practices adopted by the industry is positive, as they show the care with environmental preservation. “It is not a simple matter, as we have to maintain the processes and at the same time reduce their environmental impacts. Receiving this certification is a source of great pride for us”, he concludes.
