"In addition to the goal related to reducing the intensity of emissions, Neoenergia has a structured set of Corporate Sustainability guidelines, composed, among others, of sustainable management, environment, biodiversity and climate action policies. Thus, the alignment for a renewable and affordable electricity model, with the development of increasingly efficient and sustainable technologies, is established in a clear, objective and consistent way", completes the executive.
