Waste Management

QGEP follows industry best practices in waste management, seeking to make all of its employees and suppliers aware of the importance of reducing waste, as well as the proper separation of these materials. Such practices are based on criteria established byrelevant laws, especially the Technical Note (Nota Técnica) 01/11 from IBAMA.

QGEP procedures define requirements for management, storage, transportation, and final disposal of waste generated during its activities. The Company maintains a strict waste traceability control from the generating unit to the final destination site, ensuring its effective reuse or disposal.

The waste generated in QGEP headquarters is utilized in the development of the social projects as NGO social project Sea Shepherd Brazil (Guardiões do Mar), a cooperative located in the municipality of São Gonçalo, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, which utilizes recyclable waste as raw-materials for making decorative objects, thus creating jobs and opportunities.
