At FUNO, we strive to include eco-efficient technologies in our estates, in order to gurantee optimal use of this resource. Whenever we make improvements or important investments on eco technologies, we prioritize those estates with intensive water use, aiming at better cost-benefit and increased positive impact on the use of water and water availability to communities around.
We also verify our waste water complies with regulation and does not negatively damage ecosystems or surrounding communities.
