Report objectives

Avibras has always conducted sustainability initiatives. To demonstrate this, the company is publishing its first report, providing society and the market with an account of its economic, environmental and social performance.

The purpose is to contextualize its actions and the results obtained in managing for sustainability during the course of 2016. The content may include facts occurred before or after the reporting period to provide the reader with a broader understanding of the company's current situation.

Produced with stakeholder groups such as communities, customers, suppliers, government agencies and shareholders in mind, the document also provides parameters to enable the organization to improve its performance and processes with a focus on sustainable development.

This constitutes a management tool that enables the company to verify the extent to which its management for sustainability is in adherence with international guidelines.

Orientation of content

The content was determined in accordance with seven strategic dimensions, established in the company's strategic planning (read more on Business and competitive intelligence), which are directly linked with the profile of the business:
