SUSTAINABILITY


Environmental Responsibility

Since 2010, FH has made a commitment to reduce CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions by 15% considering the annual average per employee. The company’s emission sources are, for the most part, air and road travel and its facilities.

To reduce CO2 emissions with air travel, FH invests in simplifying its logistics, building units in strategic business areas. Another initiative of this front is to propose alternatives to customer, enabling remote service and optimizing the logistics strategy. There is also incentive to use bicycles, with showers in the locker rooms and subsidy for the use of bicycle racks in the offices.

Reducing CO2 emissions at our facilities was based on the replacement of workstations, from desktop computers to notebooks for all employees, reducing energy consumption. In addition, presence sensors have been installed in some rooms and environments frequented by employees, so lights don’t stay on unnecessarily. Also, normal bulbs have been replaced by LED bulbs, which consume less energy. Another action, probably the most import

Social Responsibility

Social responsibility at FH happens through several actions involving all collaborators, such as constantly encouraging them to practice sports (Reds Team), Solidarity Christmas and the program Team Goals for Life at Little Prince Hospital. The program created by the largest pediatric hospital in Brazil has been supported by FH for more than 5 years. Partner companies offer financial support for new scientific research and treatments.

 

In 2007, FH joined the UN Global Compact, following principles of Human Rights, Labor Rights, Environmental Protection Principles and Anti-Corruption Principles. To learn more about the UN Global Compact, please visit: http://www.unglobalcompact.org
