São Martinho’s units renewed to 2018 the Green Energy certificate, issued by the Bioelectricity Certification Program. The company’s plants have been certified since the launch of the initiative in 2015, which was conceived by the Sugarcane Industry Union (UNICA), in cooperation with the Electricity Trading Chamber (CCEE), and with the support from the Brazilian Association of Energy Traders (ABRACEEL).
The Green Energy Seal is the first certification in Brazil focused strictly on energy produced from sugar cane and attests that companies generate renewable and sustainable electricity for their own consumption and for the National Interconnected System (SIN).
