We prioritize the power generation from sources with low pollutant emission, which represent more than 90% of our installed capacity, and we have the goal to contribute to the transition to a new development model based on a low-carbon economy. Learn more about our strategy and actions directed to the treatment of the subject of climatic changes.
We identify and measure annually the greenhouse gas emissions of our companies.
The Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions of the Eletrobras Companies follows the methodology of IPCC (2006) and the guidelines of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol - GHG Protocol (WRI, 2004) - corporate standard of accounting and communication of greenhouse gas emissions which is internationally recognized and the most used tool in the world for your quantification.

The Eletrobras Declaration of Commitment on Climate Change was signed by senior management in 2012. To get a unified strategy for our companies to adopt practices that minimize or compensate our greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), to assure the implementation of actions of GHG emission management and to give priority to renewable energy projects are among the commitments undertaken in the document.

We promote studies related to climate change aiming at identifying and understanding its impacts in the Brazilian electric sector and seeking new technologies to minimize its effects.
The research and development project Carbon Balance in Reservoirs (Balcar Project), coordinated by the Electric Power Research Center (Eletrobras Cepel) with Eletrobras Eletronorte, Eletrobras Chesf and Eletrobras Furnas, is an internationally recognized study proving that hydroelectric power plants are one of the cleanest sources of energy and which, in some cases, the reservoirs of power plants can absorb greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
