Corporate Governance and Management in Socio-environmental Responsibility
Governance and sustainability management has been practiced by Banco do Brasil for more than a decade and has been improved over time. The Code of Ethics and the Sustainability Plan Agenda 30 BB are examples of this evolution, as well as the various voluntary public pacts and commitments of which BB is a signatory.
Socio-environmental responsibility is a corporate policy that proposes to incorporate the principles of sustainable development into the planning of its activities, business and administrative practices, involving its relationship audiences.
Based on this premise, the evaluation of organizational performance goes beyond economic indicators, which considers, in an integrated manner social dimensions - such as the defense of human and labor rights, the welfare of employees, the promotion of diversity, respect for differences, social inclusion and direct investments in the community – and environmental preservation – such as those that consider the direct and indirect impacts of our activities on air, water, land and biodiversity.
