Itaipu develops the largest reforestation program ever conducted by a hydroelectric power plant in the world. Since 1979, it has helped plant over 44 million seedlings, equivalent to 100 thousand hectares or 60% of the Iguazu National Park area.

Today, an area of less than 2% of the reservoir protection strip awaits reforestation. Of the 23 million seedlings already planted on the lake’s protection strip, 14 million came from the three forest nurseries operated by the company in the cities of Foz do Iguaçu, Santa Helena and Guaíra.
