Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsHeadquartered in the Brazilian state of Ceará, Pontes leads the way in the sustainable and socially responsible processing, refining and trading of high quality Carnauba wax. The Pontes family, whose Pontes Group established Pontes Industria de Cera in 1956, has been at the forefront of Carnauba wax production since the 19th century.
To ensure that Pontes’ actions prioritise our people and the planet, we have been certified as Fair for Life. Many are our commitments to guarantee fair trade and the rights regarding carnauba workers and the community of Santa Rita, such as: support decent work, improve income and quality of life, empower community, promote biodiversity, among others.
Our work aims to strengthen the community and improve the well-being of everyone. We thrive through actively listening to the communities we work with, and acting at all times with empathy.
