We produce with a focus on continuous improvement and seek optimization and production efficiency in the use of resources such as land, water, and energy. All of our operations are subjected to environmental management instruments and we monitor soil, water, air, and biological components on a semesterly basis.
We self-generate around 50% of energySee more
We have mechanisms in place that permit the reutilization of our waste materials. Annually, we self-generate electricity by using the gases generated during the treatment of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME). We generate steam through the combustion of Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) and fiber, among others.
570,000 m3 of treated waste water and 150,000 m3 of reused water per year.See more
We have treatment systems for our authorized industrial and domestic effluents. We continuously seek to improve these processes in order to ensure compliance with the highest international.
We implement Clean Development Mechanism (MDL) projects in order to reduce our greenhouse gas emissiones.See more
From 2007 to 2012, our extractor Palmawasi sold Emission Reduction Certificates (ERC) obtained with our project aimed at the conversion of methane gas (generated in our effluent treatment plants) into electric energy. Today we continue to minimize methane gas emissions, contributing to responsible palm oil production.
65 000 tons of recycled and reused solid wasteSee more
All companies of Grupo Palmas use the 3R model (reduce, reuse and recycle) in their solid waste management. We seek to add value to our solid waste by recycling and reusing it, including Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB), which is used as a fertilizer and soil and fuel improver.
In all our operations, we protect High Conservation Value areas (HCV), forests with High Carbon Stock (HCS) and areas that are considered peatlands and wetlands.
We self-generate around 50% of the energy we consume, utilizing the biomass from our plantations and the biogas from our effluent treatment plant.
Grupo Palmas maintains an active relationship with the communities surrounding its operations. We work on the basis of three axes: education, health, and economic opportunities.Learn more
