SUSTAINABILITY

Social Responsibility and Internal Communications plan of action

In a globalized world, where resources are finite and possibilities of economic growth appear endless, decision makers in their process of thought must consider new paradigms. Being Socially Responsible means to be constantly reflecting on what direction to bear based on what is best for participants and the community in general.
 
Grupo Multiterminais comprehends, approves and encourages the practice of sustainable actions seeking a better world. We create and administrate environmentally friendly projects, naturally making an objective of ours to reduce negative impacts to our environment. We believe that social projects straighten relations with communities in which we act, also promoting citizenship and valuing people.
 
Expanding our business seeking a balance between natural resources, social aspects and economic growth is our goal. Grupo Multiterminais assumes this responsibility with the world, with our collaborators, and with present and future clients.

    • Central de Resíduos Sólidos
      In 2008, MultiRio built its new Central of Solid Residues; adquiring a presa in order to optimize the segregation of recyclable residue, these stored in the Central for Solid Residues, and began storing, temporarily, waste and other non-recyclables in a compacter.
       
      These measures sought to optimize and expand the capacity of storing residual waste, reducing its direct environmental impacts in the process of transporting them to its final destination. The past four weekly pick ups were reduced to one pick up every 20 days.
    • Treatment and Re-use of Waste Water
      In February 2014, MultiRio implemented the biological water treatment system, for treatment of waste water from the washing of equipment.

      This system reduced costs, water consumption and the residue production, benefiting not only the company but also the environment, by reducing the consumption of 1,500 m3 of water.
    • In Loco Composting
      In 2014, MultiRio was once again, the pioneer terminal in reducing environmental impacts caused by food waste scraps. In April, MultiRio implemented in loco composting, after 4 months of testing the new technology. Besides the reduction in CO2 emissions, the fertilizer will be reused in the company’s gardens. This measure has several benefits to the environment, including:
       
      - Reduces use of sanitary deposits
      - Reduces the emission of CO2 and methane which are harmful to the environment
      - Produces an extremely potent organic fertilizer
      - Increases recycling output, since organic sources are separated from recyclable materials such as glass and plastic
    • Reduced consumption of plastic cups
      In 2009 MultiRio installed water fountains and distributed squeeze bottles for the collaborators with the goal of reducing the consumption of plastic cups in MultiRio and MultiCar, consequently diminishing residual waste in the environment, eliminating the risk of throwing cups in the sea, optimizing the cleanse and maintenance of the patio and the port of MultiRio and MultiCar as well as providing cold water for the consumption of collaborators involved in ship operations.
    • Navis Prime Route
      One of the main measures adopted by MultiRio to reduce the consumption of diesel oil in their operations was the investment in the Navis PrimeRoute system. Operations began in October 2010 with the goal of optimizing the movement of containers, realized by trucks, by identifying which one is closer to the cargo to be moved and thus reducing diesel oil consumption.
    • Coleta Seletiva
      In 2006, MultiRio began separating trash, installing specific bins for residue from offices, dining hall, patio, storage areas and shops. Since then more than 1800 trees and four Olympic pools of filtered water were preserved, taking into consideration only the recycling of paper.
    • Compostagem
      In 2010, MultiRio began relocating residue from meals to be reused as manure.
    • Warehouse 5-Resende Unit
      With 8.000 m2 of useful area, Warehouse 5, which is part of the Multiterminais Resende complex, was projected and constructed according to the most modern concepts of sustainability. A water collecting system was designed to collect and store rain water, which is then re-used in the pressurized anti-fire system, in the bathrooms and for cleaning purposes. Another innovation is the use of a transparent rooftop enabling a high index of natural light to illuminate the environment reducing thus the use of electric energy and maintaining a comfortable temperature in the warehouse.
    • Portainers e RGTs elétricos
      MultiRio acquired new STS (ship-to-shore crane) portrainers that are equipped with the Tandem "Single-Hoist" system, allowing them to simultaneously move two 40 feet containers or four 20 feet containers, for its container terminal. Such equipment does not use fossil fuels in their operations and will aid the company to elevate the movement quantity per hour.

      Beyond the portainers, Multiterminais acquired 06 RTGs (Rubber Tyred Gantry) that move and store the containers in the terminal’s patio. Focused in sustainability, these RTGs are equipped with a system developed by Siemens, which is new in South America, which avoids the use of fossil fuels in its operations. This technologic sustainable solution reduces tons of emissions of harmful gasses.
    • Educação para o Futuro – Reforço Escolar (Education for the Future)
      Developed by Multiterminais and partners in order to attend the needs of 50 students of the public school Marechal Espiridião Rosas those of which were behind in content in relation to the regular classes. For a period of three months there were lessons in Math, Portuguese and Theatre.
    • Porto Tamanho Família
      In October the Dia das Crianças (children’s day) is celebrated, however in Multiterminais celebrations last all month long. The Porto Tamanho Família promotes the integration of the collaborators’ family members with the company so that they learn a little bit about the daily work routine of their parents. All this done in a pleasant evening including visits to the terminal, snacks, theatre and prizes.
    • Porto Solidário
      No final de cada ano, a Multiterminais escolhe uma instituição localizada em uma das regiões em que está presente e incentiva seus colaboradores a fazer a diferença para alguém. O objetivo é sensibilizar, mobilizar e integrar toda a empresa na arrecadação de donativos. A ideia é ajudar sem fronteiras, ir além do que conseguiríamos fazer individualmente. A Multiterminais dobra a quantidade arrecadada e faz a cerimônia de entrega das doações no local previamente escolhido.
    • Rio H2K – Núcleo Caju
      Rio H2K strengthens the formation of new dancers and the dissemination of urban culture through its annual activities. The social project was developed in Caju for 30 public schools students (having Multiterminais as a partner). It assures different people have the opportunity of participating in all the construction of activities process of the festival, making the access democratic and brewing the local culture.
    • Estrada Cultural – Orquestra de Flautas e Violinos
      Estrada Cultural na Comunidade do Caju’s project core began in April 2013 thanks to Multiterminais’ sponsorship. The project takes place in the school Municipal Espirdião Rosas, where 70 students familiarize themselves with classical music by playing the flute and the violin. The objective is to offer a real opportunity of change for children who live in an area of social risk.
    • Workshop de Fotografia com o Instituto Thomie Ohtake

      A Multiterminais, em parceira com a E. M. Marechal Espiridião Rosas e o Instituto Thomie Ohtake, já realizou um workshop de fotografia com o 5º ano da escola. A programação começou com uma aula teórica, seguida de uma exploração fotográfica e encerrando com um almoço de confraternização. As fotos dos alunos viraram uma exposição itinerante que circularam pelas unidades do Grupo Multiterminais e no bairro do Caju. Parte deste trabalho está na galeria de fotos deste site.

    • Hospital Pequeno Príncipe
      We constantly make donations for the Pequeno Principe hospital throught the fund Fundo da Infância e da Adolescência (FIA). The Complexo Pequeno Príncipe is composed by the Faculdade Instituto de Pesquisa Pelé Pequeno Príncipe and the largest exclusively pediatric hospital in Brazil. In order to maintain hospital services, those of which are mainly aimed at SUS patients, the institution counts on the collaboration of this society.
    • Multi Escola em Ação
      Multiterminais understand the importance of personal and professional development of our employees. Thus, since 2006, the group offers quality education for free. Through this portal, the interested parties have the opportunity of completing lower school all the way through high school.
    • Colônia de Férias D. João VI (D. João VI Summer Camp)
      Grupo Multiterminais firmly believes that school vacations are synonymous with fun and learning. For this reason this project provides the practice of oriented activities, be them recreational, sport related, cultural and artistic, to productively occupy the time of approximately 350 children from the Caju community.
