Low carbon projects and solutions have gained priority under the Connections for Innovation. Currently, there are more than 70 partnerships in force to develop solutions focused on renewable energy, energy efficiency and emissions reduction, totaling a contracted investment of over BRL300 million.
It was through these partnerships that we were able to develop, test or commercialize several initiatives that improve the carbon performance of operations, in addition to technologies for carbon capture and storage.
Open Innovation: a methodology aimed mainly at collaboration in the search for the best solutions. Here, the “I” becomes us. A horizontal way of working.
