A long-term, engaged investor

Votorantim adopted ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) standards even before the term was created. Our strategy is guided by the continuous promotion of ESG themes in line with our portfolio companies business strategies and at the holding level, and the commitment to transparency.

As an engaged investor, our job is to set the standard, working alongside the boards of companies in our portfolio to ensure that they are aligned regarding environmental, social and governance sustainability.

Through our governance principles we preserve and encourage our companies’ autonomy to define its own strategy, set carbon reduction goals and other environmental targets according to its needs and capabilities. In this context, Votorantim has three objectives through its consistent participation:

Looking back at Votorantim’s past, the company has always paid attention to the environment and the social causes in an intuitive way; it was simply the right thing to do. But the truth is that conserving the environment matters to our business.”
