Global leaders are searching for clean, renewable options to provide energy and reduce petroleum use.

Sugarcane has emerged as an important alternative for meeting those needs. This powerful plant is grown in more than 100 countries and holds the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, diversify energy supplies and create jobs.


The brazilian sugarcane industry association (unica)

and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) developed this website to serve as a global informati on hub on sugarcane products and their economic, environmental and social benefits around the world.

This website is part of a larger partnership between UNICA and Apex-Brasil that aims to promote the benefits of Brazilian sugarcane ethanol in North America, Europe and Asia.

Activities covered by this agreement include participation in international conferences, economic and regulatory intelligence studies, marketing activities, and public relations strategies targeted at key stakeholders.



Yesterday we celebrated #BiodiversityDay. Brazil's sugarcane sector has planted more than 46 million seedlings of native species in São Paulo since 2007 & implements biodiversity corridors to protect wildlife habitats. We must all act #ForNature. https://t.co/csM8v8XcLN
Did you know sugarcane producers in Brazil work closely with beekeepers, using permanent preservation areas to create habitats for bees to thrive? Monitoring & protecting pollinator populations matters to us all. #WorldBeeDay https://t.co/K4vHyijdoB
Ethanol blending helped bring the City of São Paulo from top to bottom of the global rank of most polluted cities. Today nearly 50% of the region’s light fleet fuel demand is supplied by #ethanol. More on Brazil's blending policy: https://t.co/c47R2IiWBI
