GNA has a strong commitment to socio-environmental responsibility

The company meets the environmental licensing requirements and funding agencies, such as IFC (International Financial Corporation), a member of the World Bank Group.

To strengthen the natural resources protection commitment and sustainable management, GNA develops and implements ecosystem monitoring programs, such as:
 

 Air Quality Monitoring

The air quality monitoring purpose is to follow the pollutants present levels in the atmosphere. In order to expand air quality monitoring in the region, GNA will install two air quality monitoring stations in the areas directly influenced by the project. When the stations are installed, the samples will be available for public consultation on the Inea website.

Fauna and Flora Rescue

During the plant suppression phase, GNA undertook to carry out the fauna and flora management in the region where the thermoelectric plants are being built. With a biologists, veterinarians and technicians support team, more than 2,300 wild animals were rescued and released in safe areas. The measure aim was to minimize these animals accidents or deaths risks. 

The flora species rescued in the region were destined to RPPN Caruara, the largest private conservation unit in the country, that aims to protect the restinga ecosystem.

Environmental Management of Works

In order to mitigate the environmental impact on the region, GNA established 14 management actions that must be observed throughout the works execution.

These actions take into consideration all those involved with the project, such as contractors, employees and communities, and address everything from compliance with legal aspects to care with health, safety and the environment awareness.

In this sense, management measures are established that aim to fauna and flora preservation, land protection, emissions and vibration sound reduction, as well as atmospheric emissions minimization, the workplace adequacy, waste collection and disposal system, among others.

In addition, the environmental training action stimulates the worker's awareness about the importance of issues related to health and safety in the work environment and environmental preservation. These employees are also oriented to the environmentally correct actions daily execution.
