SUSTAINABILITY

OUR COMPANY UNDERSTANDS THAT A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE IS ONLY BUILT THROUGH THE STRENGTH OF INDIVIDUAL EFFORTS

and it should begin with our employees, suppliers, and business partners, before reaching the community.

GHG REPORT

Seeking to adapt to more sustainable practices, BKO joined the Brazilian chapter of the GHG (Greenhouse Gas) Protocol, where members annualy publish public records containing their greenhouse gas emissions. The GHG Protocol, which was implemented in Brazil in 2008 by the Center of Studies in Sustainability of Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV), results from the joint action with the World Resources Institute (WRI), World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), Conselho Empresarial Brasileiro para o Desenvolvimento Sustentável (CEBDS), USAID (American cooperation agency), British Embassy, and the Ministry of the Environment.

CARBON NEUTRALIZATION

BKO neutralized its greenhouse gas emissions in 2012 and 2013, showing its concern in reducing the impact of its activities. The emissions were measured through its Emissions Inventory and the neutralization occurred through the use of carbon credits dispatched by UNFCCC (UN body for Climate Changes).

The carbon credits, also known as Certified Emission Reductions (CERs), were created in projects by the Clean Development Mechanism, which represents the implementation of cleaner technologies that effectively reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Each credit is equivalent to one ton of GHG that was not emitted to the atmosphere.

These credits were used to permanently neutralize the company’s emissions. With this initiative, BKO guarantees a real neutralization which is immediate and verifiable, since its partner company, Neutralize Carbono, specializes in projects of emission neutralization by using a pioneer method that promotes the permanent realocation of CERs.

The neutralization of emissions done through carbon credits contributes indirectly to the maintenance and development of new projects that use technologies with lower levels of emissions than those found in conventional technologies. For instance, BKO used credits from a small hydroelectric center called Garganta da Jararaca, located in the state of Mato Grosso, thus contributing to the development of an even cleaner energy matrix in Brazil.

BKO received certificates of neutralization of emissions that present a unique registry number, which guarantees the tracking of documents related to the project that resulted in the credits. These documents are public and freely accessible by any interested party on the UNFCC website, ensuring the reliability, soundness, and transparency of the proposed solution.

Additionally, the carbonometer – emissions counter – shows the total of emissions already neutralized by the company, as well as comparisons between emissions to better understand the dimension of the performed action.
