Five of the manufacturing plants we operate in Brazil are carbon neutral: Imperatriz, Eunápolis, two sites in Três Lagoas, and Jacareí.

These are part of our Integrated Manufacturing Model (IMM), offering on-location sodium chlorate and/ or chlorine dioxide production. The five sites have low Scope 1 GHG emissions, that were offset by purchasing carbon credits from renewable energy projects*, and reported zero Scope 2 GHG emissions. In the Eunápolis site, in 2022, we purchased limited electricity from the grid that was offset by the purchase of renewable energy certificates, created from renewable energy projects.

Modern pulp mills normally generate excess utilities (such as steam and water from the pulping process) that can be used as fuel in other manufacturing processes. Nouryon uses renewable energy from our customers, sourced primarily from biomass. These reused resources effectively lower the carbon footprint of the site significantly, while making production more efficient. Simultaneously, on-site production reduces transportation requirements.

*Offsets for Scope 1 emissions certified by the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), administered by Verra, and retired. For more information, see
