Social and Environmental Responsibility

Respect for the environment and life is a non-negotiable value of NTS. This responsibility spans the entire company, from maintaining operations to developing new activities. NTS's actions respect strict safety standards, mitigate environmental externalities and enhance the social benefits inherent to its activities.

Therefore, at each undertaking, studies and programs are developed to identify and evaluate impacts on communities, fauna and flora, soil, water resources and air. In addition, measures are proposed to eliminate, minimize or compensate for negative impacts. The integration of the enterprise with the locality is a vital assumption of the company.

In 2020, a year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, NTS made donations to support the three states (RJ, SP and MG) where it operates.

Resources were donated to activate beds, equipment, PPE's, in addition to food and hygiene products.The social management of the initiatives was carried out by the Instituto da Criança. Check the video for general information about donations.

Environmental Licensing

Environmental Licensing allows the development of the company's activities in compliance with the law, throughout its life cycle.

In this process, the compliance with legal requirements, compliance with environmental conditions and, finally, the deadlines established for the requirements for renewal of the Operating Licenses are monitored.
