Certifications

The pursuit of best practices, care for transparency, and commitment to safety motivates us to obtain certifications that govern our processes and, at the same time, add value to our business.

Bonsucro
Certification

Bonsucro is a voluntary international certification that aims to guarantee sustainability in the sugar-energy sector in order to guarantee superior economic, environmental, and social criteria throughout the process of growing sugarcane and derivatives. We were the first company in the world to be certified in the Bonsucro standard and 20 of our 26 mills are currently certified, with the goal of continuing to increase this number until 2020. To do so, we have embedded this criteria into our operations and engaged our partners in the sustainability journey through the ELO Program, encouraging and supporting all stakeholders to stay aligned with the best environmental and social practices.
