Santos Brasil's Sustainability Policy serves as a reference for
the Company's operations and guides its strategy, which is targeted
to four key matters: Occupational Health and Safety; CO2
and Water Emissions; Local Development; and Transparency and
These themes were established from the Company's vision and
mission, the analysis of its industry, and surveys and dialogues
with stakeholders for understanding their expectations.
These matters are monitored by the Company's Sustainability
Committee, a multidisciplinary team whose objectives are to
validate strategies, monitor the defined indicators, and support
the implementation of the Sustainability Policy in all business
Occupational Health and Safety
Occupational Safety, more than a challenge for sustainable
management, is also a value. This is why we invest in training and
in programs for promoting excellence in our safety indicators,
ensuring a healthy and safe working environment.
CO2 and Water
For the key issue regarding CO2, the focus was set on
renewable energy, and the adopted strategy calls for investment in
new technologies, redefining the energy matrix, efficient energy
utilization, and the impact from carbon emissions (CO2).
Therefore, the strategy pays special attention to indicators
related to energy, atmospheric emissions, and water.
We strive to ensure that our operations have programs for
engaging the local communities. For this purpose, we developed a
corporate voluntary service program, and support initiatives such
as the Formare (Aprendiz) Program, in addition to
the Nostra Aldeia and Funda√ß√£o Setaport de
Responsabilidade Social projects in Guaruj√°. We encourage the
contracting and development of local suppliers by means of a
Supplier Management Program. We seek to invest in projects and
programs that are in synergy with the identity of the business and
are relevant to the country and the communities, ensuring that
there is always a link with local, national and international
Transparency and Anti-Corruption Practices
Based on the best corporate governance practices required by the
Novo Mercado section of the S√£o Paulo Stock Exchange
(BM&FBovespa), we use transparency and security criteria in the
disclosure of information. We also have a Code of Conduct that
addresses the issue of corruption and human rights and guides the
ethical behavior of all our employees and service providers.
