Our path towards a low-carbon economy depends on a climate governance strategy. This strategy has four main pillars:

1. Impact Assessment
1. Impact Assessment

Preparation of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory for Cielo and its subsidiaries, and the Risk and Opportunity Assessment of climate change risks facing the company.

2. Emission Reduction
2. Emission Reduction

Implementation of possible improvements identified in the impact assessment in all company processes, as well as maintenance and adjustment of equipment and businesses to reduce impacts.

3. Emission Compensation
3. Emission Compensation

Compensating emissions into the environment that cannot be eliminated. This can be done by purchasing carbon credits, especially from projects that promote social and biodiversity improvement

4. Transparency
4. Transparency

Discussion of policies for a low-carbon economy, such as the CES/FGV Companies for Climate Platform. Disclosure of information on emissions through initiatives like the Carbon Disclosure Project, B3’s Carbon Efficient Index (ICO2), and the GHG Protocol’s Public Emissions Registry.

Emission data

Every year, Cielo prepares a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory. The preparation of this inventory is in line with global best practices and subject to an external audit. It is published in the Public Emissions Registry of the Brazilian GHG Protocol Program and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

Cielo is also a spontaneous participant of the Carbon Efficient Index (ICO2) of B3 S.A. – Brasil, Bolsa, Balcão, which comprises stock from companies participating in the IBrX-50 index who accepted to join the initiative, adopting transparent practices regarding greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
