14 April 2011 No Comment

In the scope of the celebration of the International Year of Forests 2011, this campaign aims to raise the awareness of the employees about the preservation of the Forest resource through the collection of paper from the cutlery paper bags at the Douro Interior Concession canteens. This initiative is the responsibility of Mota-Engil Engenharia and has the motto: “Help the Forest – Separate the Cutlery Bags”. The purpose is to show that small daily actions are essential for preserving natural resources and for the ecological balance of the Planet. To give an idea, a ton of recycled paper avoids the felling of 20 adult trees, saves 75% of electric power and lowers the air pollution in 74% when compared with a new paper production.
