With wind projects in four different Brazilian states (Bahia, Piaui, Rio Grande do Norte and Rio Grande do Sul), Atlantic Renewable Energies stands out among companies in the wind-power sector as an enterprise whose foundations are inseparable from the business strategy comprising its sustainable core: environmental concern, corporate governance, health, and safety.
The company invests on sustainable development, in projects that help communities in the surroundings of its wind farms, located in areas where HDI (Human Development Index) is often low.
In recognition of its sustainable credentials, Atlantic has received the Renewable Energy Certification (REC), audited by ABS Consulting and granted by the Totum Institute to enterprises that use renewable energy sources and cutting-edge technology with a high level of environmental, social, and economic performance.
Using this as a point of departure, the company has created the AmbientAR Cycle, through which other organizations can buy Renewable Energy Certificates. Part of the amount invested goes to communities in the surroundings of the wind farms. It is a way of enhancing the value of the company, the brands that invests in sustainability and the renewable energy market as a whole.
Varieties of programs focusing on social, environmental, and economic development comprise part of the company’s strategy. These are investments in education, raising awareness, oversight and mitigation of environmental impacts at all of its complexes and wind farms.
The project Sowers of the Winds is an example of the activities conducted with communities. It stimulates residents to create banks of native seeds produced by family farmers, and promotes the preservation of the ecosystem in Bahia’s Campo Formoso region, where Morrinhos Wind Power Complex is located.
Recognizing the importance of education for sustainable development, Atlantic is supporting the Joao Paulo II Educational Center, and taking part in recreational and educational activities, aiming to foster environmental awareness and citizenship among children.
