Entre mai 2006 et avril 2007, Native a effectue un bilan des émissions de gaz a effet de serre (GES) de la filière biologique de l'Usine de Sao Francisco (UFRA). Cette évaluation a été réalisée selon le protocole GHG - modèle international pour mesurer les émissions - en considérant les effets de la culture de la canne et la production de sucre et d'alcool a l'usine. Compte-tenu qu'une partie de cette production est destinée a l'exportation, l'énergie nécessaire pour le transport de ces marchandises vers leur destination finale (USA, Europe, Japon) a également été prise en compte.

Les quantités d'émissions trouvées pour UFRA sont plus basses que les niveaux moyens d'émissions de l'industrie de la canne a sucre, du fait de ses méthodes de production biologiques. Comparée a la production de sucre a partir de la betterave en Europe ou au Japon, ou encore a la production de sucre a partir de la betterave ou du mais aux Etats-Unis, les écarts sont encore plus nets, car ces méthodes de production fonctionnent a partir d'énergies fossiles alors que UFRA utilise de l'énergie a base de bagasse de canne a sucre.

Competitive Differentials

Our first commitment is to quality. We want our consumers to experience tasty food, consistent with the strictest international quality standards, and produced using a world-class technology base.

To us, organic farming is quality too. Organic foods provide consumers with more nutrients, vitality and flavor, affording them better quality of life. Its production process is environmentally friendly and drives social inclusion, benefiting society as a whole.

Moreover, the use of biological raw materials, often waste coming from the industry itself, avoids the purchase of synthetic chemical inputs and, thus, reduces production costs. This is achieved without any loss to productivity, as can be seen in the chart below, which represents the historical productivity of the São Francisco Sugarmill, including the years before and after the conversion to the organic system.

This is an extremely important factor, because the calling of any business is to generate value for its shareholders and for society in the form of purchases from suppliers, wages paid to employees, tax collection, and social investments, among others. Growth and good financial results are a company's supporting axis, without which its longevity is threatened.

Growing on the market, generating more foreign exchange, distributing wealth to society, and contributing to the preservation of the environment is a Native commitment.
