Time line of our activity

 

Sustainability for us, is the construction of the long-term relationship through actions targeting the economic wellbeing of society and the amplified management of risks and opportunities.

 

Sustainability and Social Responsability Policy

 

Our Sustainability Policy sets out the guidelines for the Bank’s relationship with its employees, its customers, its suppliers, the market, the community and the government. It also provides principles for the management of activities and relation with the environment, social–environmental risk management in its business, and the development and management of products and services.

We at Banco Votorantim reaffirm our commitment to the principles of sustainable development in all of our activities and operations.
