2021 represented yet another important step in our history. We enhanced our understanding of the impacts and opportunities our business has to generate value in the environmental, social and governance (ESG) dimensions, which gave rise to the publication of the company’s Sustainability Report. The publication increases exposure of the work we do, reinforcing the bonds of trust forged with our partners, employees, customers, investors and other stakeholders. It is aligned with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), as well as incorporating indicators from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and recommendations from the World Economic Forum (WEF) publication Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics.
