Considered the next step after Brazil GHG Protocol Program, EPC engages companies not only in discussions and activities related to management and reduction of corporate GHG emissions, but also in the industry positioning when it comes to climate and elaboration of public policy propositions to contribute to a low-carbon economy in Brazil.
Based on EPC activities, Brazilian businesspeople assess their risks and opportunities and jointly discuss practical solutions and contributions to a legal framework in the country. Such efforts aim at contributing to:
- Strengthening competitiveness in the domestic industry in a new global economic context
- Ensuring access of Brazilian products to international markets, which are increasingly demanding in socio-environmental standards
- Building a domestic market that is keen on technology development, innovation and business practices, with lower potential to release GHG
- Promote energy security in Brazil
