Healthy Planet

As stated in the MARS Inc Sustainable in a Generation Plan, at Cafosa we are committed to conserve resources by reusing, recycling and adopting processes that reduce consumption of raw materials, energy, water and waste.

We strongly believe that beyond delivering benefits, it is our company’s duty to care for the security of our Associates and to minimize the impact of our activity on the environment.
Our policy establishes a framework to mark and review mid-and-long term objectives for risk prevention, environmental impact and sustainability.
