NATIVE® IS THE FIRST BRAZILIAN COMPANY TO ACHIEVE THE ROC™ CERTIFICATION OF REGENERATIVE ORGANIC AGRICULTURE
Throughout its history, Native® has always been at the forefront of sustainability. It took several decades of research and large investments that helped create the Cana Verde Project (The Green Sugarcane Project), a sustainable system for sugarcane growing free of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, pioneering the harvesting of sugarcane without burning.
In this way, the land cultivated by Native® underwent a restoration process that resulted in many benefits for nature. Restoration of the active soil biostructure created conditions for its recolonization by ancestral living organisms (biota), improving the water cycle, and generating clean water, free from hundreds of contaminants common to intensive chemical agriculture. The food web reconstitutes itself where there is water and living soil, favorable conditions that helped create a perfect environment for different species of animals to settle in the region. A survey carried out by Embrapa Satellite Monitoring identified more than 340 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, 49 of which are threatened with extinction.
PRODUCTION THAT RECOVERS AND PRESERVES ALL NATURE
Organic Regenerative Agriculture integrates several agricultural techniques that seek to reconcile the need for productivity in the field with the need to preserve natural resources, generating benefits such as the regeneration of soil fertility, increased biodiversity in farmlands, recovery, and preservation of water resources, and carbon sequestration. This set of environmental benefits is known as “Ecosystem Services”. In other words, an agricultural production system is only considered effectively regenerative if it manifests the ability to provide ecosystem services to local and surrounding ecosystems and to society as a whole.
NATIVE REGENERATES THE PILLARS OF NATURE
The environment’s ability to regenerate itself is part of its constant cycle. However, individualistic thinking makes human actions constantly attack every pillar in nature, disregarding the consequences for tomorrow.
Native® is at the service of nature, we are constantly looking for solutions that take care of everything from the soil to the important water cycle, helping to regenerate the sources of life on our planet. Check out the results of some of our actions.
CARING FOR PEOPLE IS ALSO PRESERVING TOMORROW
