Purpose has become a fundamental topic for companies, as we live in a moment when people are looking for a greater sense of meaning in their choices.

Tramontina took its first Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory, for baseline year 2021, using the Operational Control approach, scopes 1 and 2.

waste-recycling, reuse and energy recovery
At Tramontina, we treat each raw material with great care: everything is designed to make our consumers happy.
Aluminum is a material of great versatility, being used in different products. It is a material of easy and infinite recycling and of great interest in the production chain. All waste generated in the production of Tramontina’s products is reused in the companies themselves, turning them into products, which results in a significant reduction in energy consumption in the life cycle of this material.
Stainless-steel is a material that has a long service life, is 100% recyclable and is of great interest to the chain. It is very common that in its composition there are significant percentages of recycled material. Tramontina’s products made with it are widely recognized for their quality and durability, in addition to not requiring frequent maintenance or replacement – an important pillar of sustainability.
The carbon steel alloys used in Tramontina’s products have an easily accessible recycling chain. In their composition, they present elements that facilitate the production process and give the product characteristics that improve resistance to wear, bending, fatigue and tenacity, which reflects on the useful life of the product.
Plastic is a versatile material that can be used in a wide range of applications: furniture, household utensils, tools, vehicles, packages, etc. Its processing consumes less energy than similar materials and can be recycled easily and many times. Currently, several products have percentages of recycled material in their composition, even assisting in the disposal of disposable materials.
Wood is a renewable raw material used to produce tool handles, furniture, flatwares and utensils in general. Part of this raw material comes from our own production forests and another part comes from sustainable management projects. Some product lines also have FSC® – Forest Stewardship Council® certification.
It is produced from raw materials of mineral origin, from carefully selected suppliers. It is an inert, resistant material that is processed with technology aimed at quality and resource optimization. The virtues of porcelain are reflected in the quality, durability and beauty of the products.
At Tramontina, package is not just a place to store your product. The way consumers receive and discard these materials directly reflects on the environment and, therefore, factories continuously study and develop improvements in their packages. We highlight projects to reduce the amount of plastic, styrofoam, paper and cardboard in packages, to increase the use of recycled materials and of greater interest in the recycling chain, among others.
