This first Integrated Sustainability Report aims to be the initial record of a managerial logic that seeks to make the company even more competitive, identifying opportunities to promote he continuity of the business and, concurrently, adding value to it by its performance in the social and environmental fields.
Thus, by laying the foundations for a sustainable future and generating results for our shareholders, we want to continue expanding our contribution to building a more dynamic Brazil, producing and distributing wealth.SUSTAINABILITY REPORT LOG CP - 2015
The concept of building sustainably is a worldwide movement. The GBCs are present in more than 80 countries and the Brazilian arm is one of the most active and reference the advances made in the country, ranking 4th in the world rankings. The GBC Brazil is also a member of the World Green Building Council, a supranational authority that regulates and encourages the creation of National Councils as a way to promote world technologies, initiatives and sustainable operations in construction.
The GBC Brazil has the support of over hundred member companies from various sectors of the construction industry. All of them support the activities of the organization by being engaged or seeking to engage in the sustainable construction market, either through the adoption of green building practices in their facilities or offering materials and efficient service and responsible environmental point of view partner.
LOG received the Certificate of Environmental Standout from The Environment Newspaper of the State of São Paulo.
Developing a report like this is a process that involves the identification, measurement and disclosure of sustainability performance. From it, we can develop a focused management strategy for the future, based on consistent information of the impacts of our activities; improving dialogue with shareholders and other stakeholders, helping us to identify risks and opportunities related to sustainability in LOG.
LOG bases its actions on the use of efficient and economic equipment such as presence sensors, bulbs and reactors that rationalize energy consumption and reduce the costs of logistics condominiums.
LOG uses native plants for landscaping its projects, captures rainwater for irrigation, opts for dual flush toilets and self-closing taps. Practices that rationalize water consumption and decrease the costs for tenants.
The use of certified or reforestation wood in the constructions of LOG and of modular finishing reduces the waste of materials and of the production of waste. LOG also uses minerals from licensed mines in order to preserve native forests.
We provide parking spaces for vehicles in general, including those for loading and unloading, reducing the impact on local traffic and facilitating access for people with disabilities. Facades in light colors to reduce heat absorption inside the building. The natural lighting and ventilation provide comfort, while optimizing energy costs.
To prevent dirt load on public roads and the additional release of contaminated water, LOG builds containment and drainage channels in the surrounding terrain.
To reduce discards, LOG promotes the separation and storage of waste produced by construction sites, facilitating the collection and recycling. LOG tries to reuse all demolition material in the basis to prepare the ground, and give preference to suppliers close to the works. Thus reducing the emission of gases in transport and help the local economy.
