We are pleased to announce that BR Partners has become carbon neutral for the year 2021. This means that we have offset 100% of our direct and indirect emissions for the year 2021.
The concern with social and environmental issues is, besides an institutional duty, a shared value among our employees.
We believe that people and organizations need to take measures to combat climate change and its impacts. Therefore, we are motivated by the seal that marks our concern for the environment and future generations.
Last year, BR Partners joined the Brazilian Network of the UN Global Compact, the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative, establishing an important step for the development of the ESG topic within the company.
By joining the initiative, we have committed to supporting the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) with a focus on integrating good practices into our strategy.
Receiving the carbon neutral seal directly impacts SDG 13, which deals with "Action against global climate change". It is known that greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow, and are 50 per cent higher than 1990 levels. Nevertheless, global warming is causing long-term changes with irreversible threats and consequences.
Considering this scenario, we mobilized to adopt measures to reduce carbon gas emissions. In addition, we established partnerships that helped us offset all the emissions generated by the Company in 2021, directly or indirectly.
We are proud to be part of this movement! We consider this an important milestone, in line with our ESG agenda and reinforcing our social and environmental commitment and that of our investors.
