Sustainability Annual Report
(*) Information available in Portuguese only
Being a leader means creating a sustainable future. Carrefour believes in sustainable development, thus combining the expectation of a better future with many measures taken in the present in order to create a better world.
Through the initiatives that we implement in our stores, we aim to create a pleasant shopping experience for our customers at the same time that we demonstrate our sustainable drivers. Employees are essential to Carrefour and they also reflect our communities. We contribute to their insertion in the labor market, prioritizing historically discriminated segments.
Our goal is to make a difference in the places we operate by changing the reality of costumers and people around through measures focused on environmental protection, diversity promotion and solidarity. Grupo Carrefour Brasil is also committed to contributing to zero deforestation. Therefore, we act locally and globally to raise awareness and engage our production chains (soybean, palm oil, beef cattle, wood and other commodities) into more sustainable models of operation.
We also became signatories of the Global Compact, a corporate sustainability initiative proposed by the United Nations (UN) in order to make activities and operations to make effective efforts to fulfill the goal of the 2030 Agenda and also the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). This initiative proposes an action plan focused on eradicating poverty, protecting the planet and working towards worldwide peace and prosperity.
