In Brazil, Sika has set a new benchmark for sustainable business practices with its circular economy model. The company has lowered its freshwater consumption by treating rainwater and recycling process water so that it can be reused in its manufacturing processes. This project was carried out at three production sites in Brazil, resulting in a 10% reduction in Sika Brazil's total water consumption. Sika Brazil operates 16 plants around the country, and plans to implement this model at other sites as well.

Sika's commitment to sustainability and innovation is key to its entire strategy, which emphasizes the appropriate use of natural resources. Sika Brazil's focus on comprehensive water management, waste management, and energy management demonstrates the company's long-standing dedication to sustainable practices.


"We are proud to champion the circular economy focusing on water reuse, and recognizing the vital role of net zero in shaping a sustainable future. 2023 Energy Globe Award Brazil showcases our commitment to innovative environmental solutions for a greener world."
