Case Description

Bradesco endeavors to incorporate sustainability into each one of our business activities and corporate strategies. We do believe in a better world for both current and future generations. Considering that socio-environmental investment is one of the pillars of our sustainability core, we support many initiatives for that matter in Brazil, through partnerships directed to the preservation of forest environment.
Two of the initiatives contemplate the Fundação Amazonas Sustentável – FAS (Sustainable Amazon Foundation), with a goal to preserve a group of 35 environment preservation units in the Amazon region, and to promote sustainable development and improvement of quality of life of the populations involved; and the SOS Mata Atlantica Foundation, which makes possible projects devoted to the protection of Mata Atlantica (Atlantic Woods), through conservation programs, environmental education, and forest restoration, among others.
In addition to being part of our environmental investments, those initiatives are aligned to:

־ Our concerns with climate changes issues;
־ Our compliance with principles 7, 8, and 9 of the Global Compact, of which Bradesco is signatory: the companies must support a preventive approach to environmental challenges; develop initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility, and foster development and communication of environmentally friendly technologies.
