Conservation, education and sustainable technologies
The culture of the carnauba pal tree is, by excellence, an examples that it is possible to boost an economy while preserving the environment and valuing the life of people. A virtuous circle that wholly respects economic, ecological and social precept of sustainability.
It has become imperative to strengthen all the links and ensure sustainability throughout the productive chain of the Carnaúba. It waswith this in minde that the Syndicate of the Carnaúba Wax Refinery Industry of Ceará State decided to create the Sustainable Carnaúba Seal.
Developed in partnership with Associação Caatinga - a non-governmental organization whose mission is to ``promote the conservation of land, forests and water of the Caatinga scrubland region to ensure the permanence of all of its lifeforms; the seal integrates a greater action, the project dubbed ``Sustainable Carnaúba - Conservation, Education and Sustainable Technologies. That compromises the signatory companies that aim to effectively contribute towards the conservation of the Caatinga scrubland region and social investments in sustainability in the productive chain of Carnaúba.
By grant of SINDCARNAÚBA and with the seal of Associação Caatinga the companies that subscribe to the letter of principles and have formalized a direct link with the Sustainable Carnaúba project, receive a Certificate that confirms they can use the Sustainable Carnaúba Seal.
The only companies that are part of the project are those who are syndicated and agree to invest in the sustainability of the productive chain of Carnaúba, work towards the development and protection of Carnaúba okabtatuibs; respect all the regulating standards of the sector, maintain an ethical and valued relationship with workers and are completely against any type of labor practice that exploits children or is similar to slavery.
The syndicated companies who are part of the project also agree through the Sustainable Carnaúba project to encourage the appropriation of sustainable technologies as tools to improve life in the semiarid region for the rational use of natural resources and to increase capital. To promote actions of environmental education and institutional communication with the purpose of making the population as a whole more aware of the need to preserve the Caatinga and the culture of Carnaúba.
By adding the Carnaúba Sustentável Seal in their communication tools, the certified companies confirm to be the holders of a portfolio of products and services that, by excellence, integrate the virtuous cycle of the Carnauba tree, respecting, therefore all precepts of economic, ecological and social sustainability.
