Since 2009, we have had a specific corporate database for water resources and effluents, the Data Hidro (Corporate System on Water Resources and Effluents). It registers, consults and processes information on the volumes of water used, collection sources, potentially polluting loads discharged, volumes of industrial and sanitary effluents, costs involved, among other technical-operational parameters.
Through Data Hidro, we are able to carry out our inventories of water use and effluent generation, covering more than 300 installations, and to have detailed information on their water balances, which makes it possible to assess performance, identify threats and opportunities and define the necessary actions for the continuous improvement of management.
Data Hidro allows the recording and consultation of quantitative and qualitative data of the main water streams entering and leaving the company's operating units, allowing quick access to information in an integrated manner, in addition to having several reporting and data analysis tools via BI.
Aiming at continuous evolution in our system of consolidation, critical analysis and dissemination of information related to water and effluents, the company is currently undergoing a project aimed at migrating the current database to the SAP SMS* platform – EM Module (Environment Management ), as detailed in the following items.
Our goal is to have the new system in place by 2025, keeping our operations measured, inventoried and communicated with regard to water use and effluent generation.
