    Sustainability strategy

    Sustainability strategy

    Sustainable development that generates value to your business

    At AES Brasil, we believe that our operations must go far beyond generating energy. While the renewable energy market is growing and consolidating, we anticipate and guide our focus to a sustainable, secure, high-reliability, low-cost energy matrix.

    This is a new time, in which we look at the business from the customer’s perspective, which becomes more empowered and demanding in relation to the energy being consumed, in order to offer and enable the best solutions and partnerships in low-carbon electrical energy.

    Sustainable Strategic Planning

    We consider the economic, social and environmental impacts of the activities we develop to avoid or reduce possible risks that may affect our stakeholders and, in particular, to maximize their benefits. This involves planning, investing in new technologies, new business models and strategic partnerships.

    We have  six pillars and commitments in line with the Sustainable Development Goals  - the SDGs - global goals proposed by the UN, defined through a consistent process of analyzing scenarios and trends and active listening to our stakeholders. They represent our way and our business.

    Public Commitments

    In our Declaration of Commitments for Climate Change, we reinforced our role in combating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We participate in forums that promote public policies for adaptation and mitigation to the effects of climate change, such as the initiatives of the EPC (Companies for the Climate) group at the Center for Sustainability Studies at FGV (Fundação Getúlio Vargas) and the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project).

    We are signatories of the UN Global Compact committed to the UN 2030 Agenda.

    In our Declaration of Commitments on Human Rights, we express our commitment to guarantee the basic rights of all people we have relationships with, through practices that are inclusive and value diversity.

    We have also signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) promoted by UN Women and by the United Nations Global Compact.
