Pilot project partnership with rural producers
Continuing its sustainable work, in 2012, a Forest Partnership Pilot Project was implemented in the state of Minas Gerais, for the management plan and sustainable planting of the tree, including support and income generation for local communities. This project extends to its subsidiary in the South of Bahia, for the sustainable production of eucalyptus citriodorous oil, aiming at reducing environmental impacts.
Another project with Citróleo’s commercial plantation is located in Aiuruoca (close to State Park of Serra do Papagaio, an important Environmental Conservation Unit). The planting, which is close to this conservation unit, contributes to the preservation of the scenic beauty of the park, flora and fauna native to the area. The project contributes to the conservation of natural resources and local species, preserving areas of permanent preservation (APP), biodiversity, springs and water courses.
The forest management plan contributes to global climate balance, especially maintaining the hydrological cycle and retaining carbon, maintaining the original plant diversity and reducing environmental impacts.
