Tereos sugar & energy Brazil renews its support to Barretos hospital

Over the next two years, Tereos Sugar & Energy Brazil will offer 2,100 MW/h of green energy to Barretos hospital specializing in cancer treatment

In April, the subsidiary renewed its agreement to donate energy to Barretos Hospital. This extends the Group's collaboration since 2009 with the hospital, helping it to continue and develop its activities. Tereos will provide 2,100 MW/h of electricity to the establishment, to supply the pediatric department in particular, which treated some 300 children and teenagers in 2016.

The agreement was signed by Jacyr Costa, Director of Tereos Brazil and Henrique Prata, Chairman of the hospital, in the presence of representatives from the local authorities and numerous guests. "This renewed agreement shows our determination to support the operation of Barretos public hospital, which has established itself as a reference thanks to the quality of its treatment and of the care that it offers to patients" underlines Jacyr Costa. As Henrique Prata reminds us, this support is both tangible and vital: "The savings made thanks to this donation of electricity will boost our development: we are currently in the process of creating prevention and treatment centers in various regions of the country".
