ESG

Driven by its desire to have a positive impact on people, relationships and the environment, the Brasil Brokers Group has been adopting environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices since 2019.

The Company took its first steps towards a sustainable future through internal and external interventions, always looking at transformation and development opportunities in several points of its ecosystem.

The Governance has been formulating policies necessary to implement and control sustainable practices, as well as reviewing the existing ones, reiterating the Company’s current situation, with a focus on governance guidelines and strategies.

As for the environmental pillar, the Group discovered its potential for adequately disposing of waste. The Rio de Janeiro units have already been disposing of paper and technology waste for recycling and reuse, with the support of specialized institutions.

Our actions are mainly based on the social pillar inside and outside the Company, as we understand that our relationships with all stakeholders benefit us in such a way that we could not begin these actions somewhere else. The Group has joined forces with its various companies to carry out a number of projects, namely:

O Futuro Começa em Casa (The Future Begins at Home)

The project is carried out in Goiânia-GO, facilitated by Desenrola, the group’s digital platform. It aims to improve and renovate unsanitary houses, preferably where school-age children and female maintainers live.

To that end, Brasil Brokers is supported by the NGO Habitat Brasil, which specializes in this type of renovation and has been operating in Brazil since 1992.

At the first stage of the project, we renovated the houses of 10 families living in the Jardim Curitiba III community, located in the city of Goiânia, state of Goiás. The project evolved, and the first stage of renovation works was completed in September 2021.

Empreenda Jovem (Young Entrepreneurs)

The project aims to provide basic technical resources and funds so that underserved young people aged 18-24 can enter the job market and develop their careers in the commercial area within the company.

The project stands out as the first devised by the Brasil Brokers Group. The first two groups of young beneficiaries are expected to begin working in the second half of 2021 in the Abyara operations, in São Paulo, and in the Brasil Brokers Niterói operations, in Rio de Janeiro. The project is supported by the Company’s People and Culture, real estate brokerage and sales force teams.

In this project, young people with outstanding performance receive meal and transportation allowance. They also have their Real Estate Transactions Technical Training (TTI) and accreditation with the Regional Council of Real Estate Brokers (CRECI) funded by the company.

#Gigantesca (Gigantic)

A social transformation movement of the Brasil Brokers Group started in May 2021 through the Aqui cabe tudo (Everything Fits Here) campaign.

The #Gigantesca agenda addresses social, generational, gender, sexual orientation, religion, race, ethnicity and culture diversity, and ableism, among others. Through lectures, discussions and focus groups, the movement shares knowledge and creates opportunities for expression and communication, aiming at welcoming diversity and continually improving the company’s practices.

Through these actions, the Company commits itself to taking a look at its own operations and consistently seeking sustainable transformation and development, essentially leveraging the diverse potential of its employees.
