For the first time, this year, FCC S.A. received students from one of the neighboring community's municipal schools, thus reinforcing its socially responsible performance. The groups, comprised by adolescents in the 13-15 year age group, of the Municipal School “Tereza de Araújo Sagario”, visited our garden and received information on seeds manipulation techniques, production of seedlings, production of organic compounds and preparation of vegetable gardens.
Vanderléia Cristina de Oliveira, Coordinator of Environmental Education of Itaguaí, municipal district next to FCC S.A., accompanied the visit and approved the initiative. “In Itaguaí we do not have a space as this for the activities. The children belong to very poor communities, near to the Municipal Waste Center, and they do not have contact with the soil, vegetable gardens or fertilizers. This is an important action, not only considering the environmental perspective, but also as a way for socialization and change of behavior”, she said.
Fábrica Carioca de Catalisadores S.A. is an international technology company that produces and provides solutions in catalysts and additives for the oil refinning industry.
As a joint venture, FCC S.A. joins the tradition and know-how of two world giants of the oil and petrochemical areas – Petrobras and Albemarle Corporation.
