It is no news that the concern with sustainability is part of the routine of today's business leaders. And at the Odebrecht Organization it is no different: the ideas and concepts of sustainable development that have emerged intensely in the corporate world over recent decades were incorporated into the principles of Odebrecht Entrepreneurial Technology (TEO).
With respect to this new logic of operations for companies, all of the teams’ practices, whether in Brazil or abroad, follow TEO and the Organization’s Sustainability Policy. This is because Odebrecht knows that it is only possible to continue along the path toward Survival, Growth and Perpetuity if all dimensions of sustainability are considered.
As a result, the practice of sustainable development at the Organization currently extends beyond the three conventional pillars – economic, social and environmental – adopted by most corporations. At Odebrecht, this commitment also involves support for the formation of increasingly prosperous communities, with incentives toward local cultural diversity and the defense of social interests.
In this sense, the Odebrecht Organization’s Sustainability Policy is based on five different dimensions:
- Economic Development
- Social Development
- Environmental Responsibility
- Political Participation
- Recognition of Culture
At all of the Organization’s companies, the idea is the same: the growth and success of the business must be tied to the sustainable development of communities.
