Climate Changes

GNDI is committed to contributing to the Paris Agreement to limit the average global temperature increase to 2°C through programs and technologies to improve operational efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Get to know our Climate Change Combat Policy.

Our inventory of greenhouse gas emissions has been carried out since 2018 and is according to the international GHG Protocol methodology. Click on Documents and check the progress of our Inventory of Greenhouse Gases in recent years or access our Inventory of Greenhouse Gases 2020.

GNDI is "Carbon Neutral"

In 2020, we became “carbon neutral” by offsetting 100% of our emissions, here's how:

We acquired renewable energy certificates from wind farms located in the states of Bahia, Piauí, and Rio Grande do Norte, to offset all Scope 2 emissions. See the wind farm's retirement statement and certificate.

We acquired carbon credits from Vale do Jari REDD+ Project to offset scope 1 and 3 emissions. Located in the states of Pará and Amapá and certified by the main international standards, this project seeks to promote forest conservation, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, avoid deforestation, minimize social and environmental impacts, benefit communities, and improve climate and biodiversity.

In 2021, we joined the CDP platform, which helps different stakeholders in their decision-making process based on risk management information, opportunities, and social and environmental impacts. It is an initiative created to mobilize these parties to build and hasten collaborative actions toward development for current and future generations.

GNDI, in partnership with Way Carbon, carried out a study of Climate Risks and Opportunities to analyze the physical risks and effects of the increasing demand for climate change-related health services in the company's operation, in order to identify risks opportunities, and technical information as subsidy for understanding and mapping the most relevant biophysical impacts on priority assets, supporting the decision-making process regarding adaptation actions in the face of climate change.

Waste management

Correct waste management is an extremely relevant topic for healthcare companies. At GNDI, we continuously work to advance this initiative, given the importance of correctly managing waste from healthcare services to reduce negative environmental impacts. We have a team dedicated to waste management, responsible for standardization, guidance, and training.

The processes of segregation, handling, internal and external collection, treatment, and final disposal of these wastes are described in the Health Services Waste Management Plan (PGRSS) and are correctly followed to avoid negative impacts on health and the environment.

See below our main waste management actions:
