Sustainability is one of the Sete Brasil’s core values. Since its inception, the Company has been committed with a sustainable asset management, thus involving the value chain in a transparent management of environmental risk, in the development of people and communities, and in strengthening its sustainability ethos.

On 2013, the planning for the Company’s Sustainability Management was carried out in order to enforce the alignment between business strategic vision and socio-environmental matters, thus i) integrating the perspective of shareholders, clients and other relevant parties; ii) preparing the Company for the matters related to market and society’s requirements; and iii) strengthening sustainability as a company core value.

Sete Brasil’s Sustainability Guidelines were defined as a direct result of this process and they are as follows:

Socio-environmental Risks

Appropriate management of socio-environmental risks in all steps of our value chain, from construction until the assets operation;

People and Communities

To promote a sustainable working environment, with employees aware and committed to the socio-environmental issues. Based on alliances, promote the local development and social inclusion through the professional training, prioritizing local man force and suppliers;

Culture of Sustainability

Transparency and responsibility in the accountancy of socio-environmental development. Stimulate the partners in order to seek higher standards of sustainable performance;

Articulation for Sustainability

Commitment of stakeholders in common purposes and agenda to reach the Policy goals;

Sustainable Value

Professional training as asset of a shared value and commitment with the man force qualification, on national scope to the sector. Development of strategic Brazilian projects related to culture, education and environment, which aims to support and strength Brazil.

 

Commitment to Local Development

Sete Brasil has as one of its guidelines for sustainability the commitment to understand and respect the communities located in the influence area of the Projeto Sondas. Therefore, the Company supports and invests in socio-economic development of these regions, seeking to leave a positive legacy.

Under this commitment, it was conceived the Connection Program (“Programa Conexão), a Sete Brasil program of social investment that contributes to the development of professionals for the local labor force and supports local/small business management.

 

The Connection Program ("Programa Conexão")

The Connection Program came from an socio-environmental diagnostic of the communities influenced by the Rig’s Project. We identified that a number of opportunities would arise in service sector, food, hospitality, and market that would be needed professionals and local businesses prepared for this new scenario.

The Program was in operation since late 2012 in Ipojuca/PE and Maragojipe/BA - where the shipyards Atlântico Sul (EAS) and Enseada Indústria Naval are respectively located, and now is temporarily suspended. Rede Cidadã, a civil society organization with extensive experience and national presence, is the responsible for the implementation and operation of the program based on three axes: employability, entrepreneurship and learning.

On the employability axis, the goal is to develop and prepare youth and adults for the opportunities in the local labor market. In addition, the learning axis is focused on technical and vocational training and insertion of Young Apprentices on the market, meeting the obligatory hiring quotas. On the entrepreneurship axis, the focus is the professionalization of local/small businesses, based on the monitoring of volunteers.

In almost two years running, more than 2,500 young people (mostly women up to 30 years and with monthly income of up to one thousand Reais) gone through the preparation stages and training program. Of these, 1,003 were included in the labor force, representing an important milestone for the Project. In parallel, the Connection Program supports more than 40 small businesses in various sectors - service, food, local market and agricultural production.
