As part of its commitment to society, Votorantim invests in areas such as education, public management and health, in partnership with Instituto Votorantim. It also influences the portfolio companies to generate social and environmental value through their businesses.
The Social DNA is made up of four axes that guide our social and environmental initiatives. What motivates our engagement is our belief in sustainable development that reconciles natural resources with human practices.
We are committed to:
• Finding solutions within and outside the companies′ boundaries and business models to embed social and environmental aspects into the core business.
• Connecting people, skills, goals, and economic partners to advance sustainable development.
• Building bridges with local communities and creating democratic spaces for discussion.
• Maintaining the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a guide for Votorantim’s actions, scale of ambitions, and callings.
