ENVIRONMENT

With a direct impact on the business, the environmental issue is institutionally approached in the company’s Philosophy, the Quality Management Policy and the Conduct Code, the main documents that define Zilor’s and Biorigin’s action guidelines.

The entire production process uses renewable resources, from clean and renewable electric power, coming from the biomass made by the sugarcane bagasse and crop residues, up to the treatment and reuse of the produced effluents, used for fertigation.

The company also develops a series of biodiversity preservation actions, such as the production of springs and preservation, management, and recovery of permanent preservation areas of farms and natural reserves.
