FOUR GREEN DOTS
Ingenio San Carlos’ corporate philosophy includes, efficient energy, water and raw materials usage; waste reduction; and the decrease of environmental impact in order to produce high quality sugar at competitive production costs.
Before the current Sustainable Development concept existed, San Carlos made several strategies in favor of rational and sustainable use of natural resources. One of those strategies involved not using insecticides anymore, but rather the usage of natural entomological controls, reducing any environmental impacts in the soil.
