A habitat for animals and plants

The Gravataí site includes large green areas with flower meadows, tall trees and palms. The parc is a habitat for many plants and animals such as parrots, wild bees and turtles. To preserve this biotope, only diseased trees and those at risk of falling are felled and replaced. In this way, the plant contributes to the preservation of ecosystems. Employees love the parc, they go there for short walks during their breaktime or have lunch there. The protection of biodiversity is anchored in the TDK Group's environmental policy as an important field of action.
