LANXESS Ciclo Verde Contest: meet the finalists!

Fifteen initiatives will be examined by the examination board on-site in Porto Feliz (state of São Paulo), São Leopoldo (state of Rio Grande do Sul) and São Paulo

Brazil -

In all, more than 50 projects were sent. All of them participated in a transparent and democratic screening, which is available to the public in social network services and communities where LANXESS operates.

 

All assessments were carried out by a board made up of experts in sustainability and the finalists will be reviewed by a technical board, made up of LANXESS’s representatives, the Secretariat of Environment, the Secretariat of Education, the local press, and civil society.

 

The 50 enrolled projects will receive, by the end of July, their status in the Contest’s general ranking and technical considerations, which may add to the team's opinion on the potential of the project and the ways to expand or strengthen them.

About Ciclo Verde:

 

The "Ciclo Verde” contest whose purpose is to promote social projects, initiatives, and businesses that seek to solve social and environmental problems of their communities in the cultural, educational, and climate and water protection areas is in its 7th edition.

 

In 2017 it is happening in São Paulo, with focus on the south zone, São Leopoldo and Porto Feliz, and it will select the projects that best encourage sustainable behaviors in connection with energy economy/efficiency, rational use of environmental resources (water), environmental education, and social undertakings.
