Sustainability Policy

In 2023 Tramontina took another important step in its sustainability journey by publishing the Sustainability Policy. In this document, the company’s strategic objectives are defined, which will provide a unified orientation for the company’s sustainability measures in its various business dealings.

Purpose Resolution

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. People prefer brands with views that align with their worldview – and not just good products. As such, purpose is considered the heart of corporate strategy and the market competitive edge of a business.

Explore our main raw materials
Black Tramontina sauce pan.


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 Tramontina sauce pan.


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.

Carbon steel

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.

Petroleum blue Tramontina plastic chair.


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.

Wooden chair with four Tramontina feet.


Wood is a renewable raw material used to produce tool handles, furniture, flatwares and utensils in general.

Tramontina transforms packages

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.
