SUGARCANE, OUR ORIGIN AND DIFFERENTIATING FACTOR
Our agro-industrial plants and sugarcane fields are located at the mountainous subtropical forest known as “Yungas” in Jujuy, one of the most valuable natural ecosystems in the world. This precious scenario is also inhabited by endangered species, such as the jaguar, the tapir and the honey bear, among others. In this place we cultivate and add value to sugarcane crop, turning it into table sugar, printing and copier paper, alcohol for drinks and liquors, bioethanol for biofuels and energy.
YUNGAS PRODUCT CERTIFICACTION
We have achieved the “Producto Yungas” Certification, which is granted by a well-known Environmental NGO. In this way, we validate the use of an alternative source of cellulose fiber and environmental protection throughout the whole production process of Ledesma Paper products.
CARBON FOOTPRINT VERIFICATION
We have been verified under Carbon Footprint Standards, which assess Greenhouse Gas Emissions produced by human beings in production processes. International protocols developed by experts in this field are used for measuring such Emissions. In this way, we ensure the lowest environmental impact of our production processes. Since sugar cane absorbs CO2 (carbon dioxide) and its crop is renewed every 12 months, it is a priceless renewable sourse which will never extinguish, and it is also considered an extremely valuable natural tool against Greenhouse Effects.
