8 commitments made and Carrefour’s Action Plan to combat racism and discrimination

Carrefour Brasil prepared a short, medium and long-term action plan, which reinforces our historic commitment to valuing diversity with a greater emphasis on the inclusion of black men and women and in the fight against discrimination as a way to contribute to the confrontation of institutional racism in the country. From the eight commitments announced publicly, Carrefour will act firmly so that the tragic episode of Mr. João Alberto is not forgotten and for this harsh reality is truly transformed. In Brazil, where 56% of the population self-identifies as being black, it is essential that these people occupy their spaces in society, once and for all, in order to stop treated as minorities.

Thus, this plan is comprehensive and comprises three main spheres: Internal – involving all its employees; Ecosystem – including network partners and suppliers; External – with society as a whole.



Valuing diversity and inclusion is part of Carrefour’s DNA, and we take care of the quality of the relationships we maintain with everyone. That’s why we respect and welcome them as a source of wealth, something that makes the organization and the world more sustainable. The Carrefour Brasil Group, in conducting its business, as a signatory of the Global Compact, adopts corporate sustainability initiatives proposed by the United Nations (UN) and seeks to ensure that its activities and operations and its entire value chain effectively contribute to compliance 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


We invited different people to share their stories with Carrefour. Check it out below.

On the night of November 19, 2020, João Alberto Silveira Freitas was killed on the premises of our store in Passo D’Areia, in Porto Alegre/RS, in an act that does not represent and is not consistent with Carrefour’s values. On this website, we reinforce the actions we are taking in view of this fact and the commitments made to society and to our body of more than 100,000 employees throughout Brazil. With the objective of continuing to evolve as a company and contributing to the fight against structural racism in Brazil.

Grupo Carrefour Brasil completes all agreements with João Alberto Freitas’ family members and advances in internal commitments and with society.
