Bracell receives excellence award at Agrisummit 2023

The award ceremony took place during Agrisummit 2023, the Brazilian agribusiness innovation and geotechnology event.

Bracell received the excellence award for the use of GIS (Geographic Information System), promoting ESG goals in agribusiness, during Agrisummit 2023 – an event focused on innovation and geotechnology in the Brazilian agribusiness sector. The sixth edition of the event highlighted sustainability solutions and best practices that make a difference in the agricultural sector.

Bracell presented the Carbon Monitoring project, which was developed using remote sensing techniques and ESRI GIS tools to map the successional stages of native vegetation areas belonging to the company and its partners. This lets us calculate carbon removal and storage, resulting in data and query tools for corporate sustainability and environmental reports, supporting decision-making and the establishment of environmental goals.
