ESG - Guarulhos Sucatas

What is ESG?

ESG is not just a bunch of letters for Guarulhos Sucatas; it is a reality that for more than 40 years has kept the company financially healthy and attentive to the needs of the environment and the people working here.

ESG: Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance

These pillars represent the three main thematic areas in which companies should report their practices. An acronym that has come to be synonymous with Sustainability. ESG became a way of referring to what companies do to be socially responsible, environmentally sustainable, and administered correctly. ESG aims to capture the non-financial risks and opportunities inherent in a company’s daily activities.

ESG in decision-making

Increasingly, companies have understood that their role is not limited to return on investments and focusing on their shareholders but they also have a role in society, a responsibility for people involved, and for environmental preservation.

In the context of climate change, social inequalities, and the need to transition from a linear economy to a circular economy, investors and consumers are incorporating ESG elements into their decision-making. For this, they are demanding that companies not only be good administrators of financial capital but also pay attention to natural and social capital and have the necessary governance structure to support all of this.
