Environmental Care in Bahia
Conservation and Preservation
In Bahia, we conserve approximately 151,000 hectares of preserved areas and are responsible for maintaining High Conservation Value Areas (HCVA), such as Alcoprado (Teixeira de Freitas); Itanhentinga River Complex (Alcobaça); and Aparaju Complex, Muçunungas de Juerana and Peruípe (Caravelas); in addition to the plant’s HCVA, located in Mucuri.
To enhance the preservation of biodiversity, by 2030 we will connect 500,000 hectares of vegetation through ecological corridors, joining together isolated fragments of native forests in the three biomes where we operate (Amazon, Atlantic Forest and Cerrado).
And Bahia will not be left out. In the state, the corridor will be approximately 370 km long, running through the well-known Central Corridor of the Atlantic Forest, which has high biodiversity and is under severe threat.
Since the 1990s, we have monitored biodiversity in the regions where we operate. In Bahia and Minas Gerais, this work has already resulted in the identification of more than 1,700 species of fauna and flora, of which 151 are threatened with extinction and 110 are endemic.
