Papai Noel Existe (Santa Claus exists)

With the mission of transforming all employees and partners of EcoRodovias Group into Santa’s helpers, the Papai Noel Existe (Santa Claus Exists) project has brought joy to thousands of children during the holiday season. Since 2006, it has replaced the traditional Christmas gifts and cards that were sent to suppliers and employees with an invitation to answer one letter written by a child to Santa Claus. Our volunteers write the Christmas letters and EcoRodovias donates the gifts selected. We donate sustainable and educational toys to assist children in their motor, intellectual, visual and hearing development.

Climate Change

The main document guiding the Company’s actions on this theme is the Sustainability Guidelines Policy, which establishes our commitments and way of managing sustainability, more specifically climate change. The Group’s climate strategy is based on three pillars: adaptation, mitigation and offset of greenhouse gas emissions, and initiatives on all pillars are constantly held.

EcoRodovias evaluates the risks and opportunities presented by climate change to its business. These risks are incorporated into the Company’s risk matrix and actions are taken to reduce and/or eliminate them.

The Company has several initiatives in place, such as prioritizing the use of ethanol, using efficient energy technologies and installing solar power plants.

The Company offsets 100% of its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by purchasing carbon credits.


AIt also has climate goals linked to the variable compensation paid to all employees and leaders.
