Concern for the environment has been a priority throughout the history of ELEJOR since CEFSC was just a project. Incidentally, the Projeto BÖsico Ambiental (Basic Environmental Project) systematized numerous studies on the environment and the impact produced by the project. Thirty three environmental programs have been developed to mitigate, prevent and counteract the impacts caused by the construction of the project, and enhance the positive impacts.
ELEJOR structures its actions in an Environmental Management Program that integrates people to optimize operations with efficiency and positive results for the environment. This program is part of the company’s Environmental Policy, which guides the work in the operation of the Fundöo Santa Clara Energy Complex – CEFSC and moves the company to a green future: a declaration of intentions and principles in relation to the overall environmental performance, which provides a framework for action and for the achievement of its environmental objectives and targets.
The Environmental Policy of ELEJOR always seeks the commitment and respect for the environment, which anchors steady principles with the company’s culture throughout its existence.
