Mobility and preservation of the environment
Marcopolo is driving sustainable mobility, seeking to decarbonize transportation through the implementation of electric and hybrid buses. In
addition to having a very clean energy source, with renewable fuels in their life cycle, adopting these models offers a number of benefits to society: they emit less pollutants and less noise and have a lower cost of use and operation. And driving sustainable mobility does not mean setting aside traditional fuels. Marcopolo encourages research related to biodiesel, green diesel and natural gas, renewable energy sources that can replace fossil fuels.
Marcopolo constantly invests to make its factories increasingly sustainable through highly vertical processes, reuse of materials, actions focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, leaner factory, use of alternative electricity sources and other initiatives designed to preserve the future of the planet.
The G8 project has the greatest focus on sustainability out of all the projects carried out by Marcopolo to date, resulting in the reduced use of fiberglass, use of state-of-the-art welding with a 50% impact on energy consumption, use of biodegradable thermal layers, investment in new manufacturing processes, impacting on reducing time, efficiency and better ergonomics for collaborators, among other factors designed to
preserve the environment.
