    Project name:

     

    Mãos na Mata Program

    Project location:

     

    Brazil

     

    Sub-focus area

     

    Biodiversity

    Through the Mãos na Mata Program, in partnership with SOS Mata Atlântica, AES Brasil promotes reforestation activities and actions through the establishment of partnerships with other organizations. AES Brasil leverages the management expertise of their environmental technicians and assigns the planting area and seedlings and works together with the program partners to multiply the scale and positive impacts in the recovery areas. 

    AES Brasil's nursery at the Promissão hydroelectric power plant produces about 1 million seedlings annually and are used in “Mãos na Mata” compensatory plantations and for seedling donation to locals. In 2019, the reforestation program supported the environmental literacy program of the state government of São Paulo, providing 56,000 seedlings and technical support. In this project, students from the public network visit the surroundings of the reservoirs and participate in environmental education actions, with each student even planting their own seedling.

    Impact:

    4,200 hectares have been reforested to date

    243 hectares are reforested on average every year

    Partners:

    SOS Mata Atlântica
