At Enel Green Power we believe that sustainability covers all areas of life, and for this reason the construction of the Cumaru Wind Farm featured a number of related projects. There was, for example, a sustainable vegetable garden which provided fresh food for the employees’ meals. There was also a Sustainable Culinary Farm project, which encouraged employees to eat healthily and keep food waste to a minimum. Every week they received videos featuring “mouth-watering” recipes that included parts of fruit and vegetables that would normally get discarded (such as peels, stalks, seeds, etc.).
And, in order to promote environment awareness in general, the Cumaru Wind Farm had a multi-disciplinary team of 40 volunteers that focused on the concepts of social responsibility and sustainability. This particular project not only involved Enel Green Power, but also DoisA Engenharia, Engelmig Energia, Gaja Consultoria Socioambiental, OGTEC Serviços Operacionais, Proyfe Brasil, Shift Gestão de Serviços, SIMM Soluções and STPC.
We also hope to promote environmental awareness among the next generation. For this reason, we designed a fun board game for children, both those of employees and the local communities in general. The idea was to reach the Tourinhos beach, passing through towns along the way. As they did so, the players learned about such issues as garbage collection, fires, Covid 19, traffic and tourism, as well as the area’s natural beauty.
