The Environmental Policy establishes guidelines for CESP's environmental practices, aiming at achieving an ongoing balance between the strategic focus behind the generation of electricity and the Company's permanent commitment to the Environment. This ensures that environmental aspects are included in the Company's culture, in addition to its management, operational, decision-making, communication and reporting processes.

Thinking of ways to improve the environmental quality of the Company's processes, CESP created Ecotime, which are working groups comprised by employees with the purpose of promoting the 4Rs concept: Rethink, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. This action fosters changes in our employees’ daily attitudes, contributing to the formation and consolidation of a new consciousness for environmental awareness.
The activities of CESP’s Environmental Education Program are aimed at taking effective actions towards the improvement of the environmental and life quality in its area of influence. More than ensuring that the Company’s employees are committed, we also hope that the environmental conservation theme goes beyond the corporate border and becomes part of our team's identity.
