Created in 2007, Odebrecht Agroindustrial consolidates the production of ethanol, sugar and electricity, serving the domestic and international markets through nine units located in the Brazilian states of São Paulo, Goiás, Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. The company has planted 450,000 hectares and can produce 3 billion liters of ethanol, 700,000 tons of sugar and 3,100 GWh annually. In addition to generating clean and renewable energy and adopting benchmark practices in environmental conservation in all its sugarcane producing areas, Odebrecht Agroindustrial promotes economic and social development in the regions where it is present.
- 23% increase the 2015-2016 harvest compared to the previous harvest. All told, 29.2 million tons of sugarcane were milled.
- 2.1 billion liters of ethanol produced - enough fuel to run 42,000 compact cars during a year, which thus cease to emit 4.2 million tons of CO2.
- 460,000 tons of sugar, sold in 24 countries.
- 2,200 GWh of electricity exported to meet the needs of more than 10 million people in Brazil.
- Balance of 5.9 million tons of CO2e: emissions from production, processing, transport and inputs totaled 0.9 million tons of CO2e, but ethanol production captured 5.5 million and the carbon stock in the soil was estimated at 1.3 million tons.
- BRL 1.8 million invested in socio-environmental and community mobilization projects through the Social Energy Program during the 2015-2016 harvest, benefiting 18,300 people. Implemented in 2009, the Social Energy Program determines investments for the sustainable development of communities through a participatory management model. Since its inception, the Program has invested approximately BRL 20 million from Odebrecht Agroindustrial and BRL 9 million from partners in 72 projects in nine municipalities, directly benefiting over 135,000 people.
