Sustainability

Ouro Verde does not publish a sustainability report or similar document. However, given the relevance of the issue and the importance we see increasing its transparency, the company is considering formalizing an analysis process (diagnostic) and action plan to improve its sustainability practices.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Since the beginning of its trajectory, Ouro Verde has developed actions that demonstrate its commitment to the development, awareness and solidarity with the variety of stakeholders with which it interacts. In order to enhance and multiply its initiatives, Ouro Verde identified the need to establish a civic culture within the organization and format its social responsibility and volunteer initiatives in an organized manner, based on three pillars: employees, family and community.

Ouro Verde believes that a company’s growth is guided by ethical and socially responsible relationships with the various stakeholders with whom it interacts, including employees, families, communities, service provides, government, society. Guided by this understanding, it is developing a variety of internal initiatives and seeks to encourage its employees to volunteer at institutions supported by Ouro Verde, in addition to encouraging participation in solidarity campaigns. The Company aims to significantly contribute to the development of people and communities.

Solidarity Contest

The Solidarity Contest program, a volunteer program introduced in 2011, aims to awaken and stimulate the spirit of solidarity among the Company’s employees, encouraging them to volunteer and exercise their civic duties.
