As part of our ongoing effort to create a positive impact in each area where we operate,
strengthening local communities and building responsible social relationships is one of our top
priorities. Establishing responsible and transparent relationships with local communities
concerns the region and / or country where we operate, while these relationships can be
affected by both the actions of our employees as well as those of our suppliers and partners. At
the same time, continuous social support is an important factor for improving the lives of
citizens, especially in the areas of poverty, hunger and unemployment alleviation, improving
health, safety and well-being, quality education, and the sustainability of cities and
communities, mostly through actions to strengthen cultural heritage.
Strengthening our relationships with local communities is achieved through a multidimensional
strategy that aims to create positive impacts in the areas where we operate. As part of our
strategy, we are creating new jobs, supporting local suppliers and stakeholders, providing offset
benefits and taking care of our socio-economic footprint.
