Commitment to sustainability, society, and governance
Dürr Brasil was honored with an ESG Award for Medium-sized Companies during the event. This prestigious award recognizes companies that participated in a survey focusing on globally and locally relevant topics and their internal policies and best practices. Dürr proudly showcased their ISO 9001, ISO 45001, ISO 14001 and Great Place To Work certifications, along with their ambitious goal of achieving a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 compared to 2019, in Scopes 1 and 2 under the Paris Agreement, which Dürr has endorsed. In Scope 3, the company aims to cut emissions by 15 %. An important milestone in achieving this goal is the "Paint Shop of the Future" concept. Paint shop operators can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions more efficiently than before. At the same time, Dürr Brasil will electrify the company’s vehicle fleet, which will reduce Scope 1 emissions, and improve the energy generation at its production facilities to decrease Scope 2 emissions.
This externally curated and commissioned award by Automotive Business, reflects Dürr's unwavering dedication to environmental, social, and corporate governance concerns. Robson Castro, Director Paint and Final Assembly Systems, and Ronaldo Selman, Senior Financial Manager, representing Dürr Brasil, proudly accepted the award at the ceremony. “We are thrilled to receive this recognition underscoring our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
