CTG Brasil arrives in Paraíba and boosts local development with social projects in five municipalities


One of the leaders in clean energy generation in the country, CTG Brasil announces its arrival in Paraíba, bringing with it a broad local development plan and social projects for five municipalities: São Vicente do Seridó, Baraúna, Nova Palmeira, Picuí and Pedra Lavrada.
The company’s landing in the region is for the construction of the Serra da Palmeira Wind Complex, which will cover these cities and is currently in the process of releasing environmental licenses for construction. The new venture is part of the expansion of renewable sources that the company has invested, aiming to stimulate its decarbonization agenda and fight against climate change.

The company, present in 12 states, has social projects to leave a positive legacy not only for the environment, but also for society. In 2022, CTG Brasil invested R$17.4 million in social initiatives, with its own and incentivized resources, reaching 107 municipalities and more than 86 thousand people.

“Aware of the social and environmental impacts generated by the implementation of power generation projects of the magnitude of the Serra da Palmeira complex and committed to mitigating these impacts and CTG Brasil’s commitment to caring for communities and long-term relationships, these actions are fully aligned with our ESG strategy and the UN Sustainable Goals”, explains Ronan Max Prochnow, Sustainability & ESG Manager at CTG Brasil.

Socioeconomic Diagnosis
In order to understand the reality of the region, identify weaknesses and define actions aimed at developing and improving the quality of life of the local community, CTG Brasil carried out a socioeconomic diagnosis in the cities near the new implementation in Paraíba, with detailed studies, data surveys and dialogues with local authorities and leaders. The participation of focus groups with different segments of residents, including family farmers, was essential to identify the main social and economic aspects of the municipalities. This information supported the construction of the social investment plan in the territory. The company initially defined some initiatives that are already underway and that cover the areas of education, culture, leisure, sport and assistance to women, children and the elderly, sensitive points identified by the diagnosis.
