Brazil’s Wilson Sons Group took another step towards the management of the impact of its operations on the environment by joining the Carbon Disclosure Project.

CDP is a non-profit programme that helps companies and cities to disclose their environmental performance in order to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change.

Wilson Sons is the first Brazilian Group in the maritime and logistics sectors to join the CDP and is the largest integrated port and maritime logistics operator in the Brazilian market.

A pioneer in the global environmental disclosure system, CDP proposes the elaboration and publication of a collective questionnaire, formulated by institutional investors and directed at the companies listed on the world’s main stock exchanges, unifying information from institutions about policies of impact on the environment and efficient management of carbon-related risks.

“We join the world’s largest companies and reaffirm our transparency process. We are among 21% of the companies that have achieved level C in the shipping segment, the global average for companies in this sector,” said João David Santos, Health, Environment, Safety and Sustainability Manager at Wilson Sons.  By joining the programme, Wilson Sons strengthens the advancement of the company’s climate agenda. 

The company´s initiative reiterates the commitments to sustainability together with social and environmental policies adopted over the past years, such as joining the Global Compact (UN) and the Brazilian Programme GHG Protocol, projects that aim to promote and transform the performance of society with regards to the impacts on the environment and corporate social responsibility.
