EcoRodovias participates in the Na Mão Certa program organized by the NGO Childhood Brasil, which brings together companies committed to the Business Pact against the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Teens on Brazilian Highways.
EcoRodovias has been dedicating its internal and external communication channels to disseminate information and guide its employees, suppliers and partners on how to act as guardians of children and teens against sexual exploitation, and on preventing and handling such situations.
We all have to think about methods to solve this problem and always report any suspicious behavior. Calls are anonymous and can be made from anywhere in Brazil, from landlines or mobile phones.
In 2020, EcoRodovias joined the UN Free & Equal program, a global UN campaign to raise awareness about homophobic and transphobic discrimination and violence, and promote greater respect for the rights of LGBTQIAP+ people.
EcoRodovias is the first company in Brazil’s highway concessions sector to join the campaign, strengthening its commitment to making its workplace increasingly plural and egalitarian.
The ESG agenda is increasingly gaining importance at EcoRodovias and to further strengthen it, the Company joined the Brazilian Corporate Council for Sustainable Development (CEBDS), a civil non-profit association of various companies which aims to promote sustainable development in the country through interactions with governments and civil society. By joining this initiative, EcoRodovias can participate in discussions on sustainability in Brazil and contribute to the formulation of policies and society engagement.
