It is not real development if it is not sustainable. Raízen's growth depends on environmental preservation and the energy of many people – employees and general society. We also know how much communities and nature depend on us. Therefore, social and environmental responsibility are the basis of the company's strategic pillars, permeating all stages of production and commercial processes.
The concern with sustainability lies in our roots: from planting sugarcane to fuel distribution, from serving customers and suppliers, to the education and safety of employees and surrounding communities. This means managing impacts and enhancing relationships by promoting joint development.
Through the work carried out by the Raízen Foundation, we work in the shaping of children and young people, which offers education, professional training, social inclusion, and citizenship for children and adolescents.
In addition, we promote vocational projects that prepare people from the community in courses taught by educational institutions, such as SENAI, SENAC, Federal Institutes, and Raízen internal instructors.
Governance of Incentive Funds
We act through the governance of incentive funds and support social transformation projects that generate positive societal impacts. We direct the best use of incentive laws through personalized ranking software and multidisciplinary committee reviews for selection and approval of sponsorship and social investment projects.
Part of our work is the allocation of a portion of the company's Income Tax to the Municipal Fund for the Rights of Children and Adolescents (FUMCAD in Portuguese), Municipal Fund for the Elderly (IMF in Portuguese), PRONON and PRONAS (National Cancer Care Program) – PcD (National Program for Attention to Persons with Disabilities). These allocations support local institutions for foster care, inclusion, and education.
We develop projects aimed at involving employees in citizenship activities and social participation in all of Raízen's productive units, prioritizing themes that benefit society and are that are aligned to the business.
