THE FUTURE IS
BUILT EVERYDAY

We build the future through our
our daily accomplishments and the lessons
we learn over our lives.

In 2016, we embarked on a Transformation Journey throughout the entire Odebrecht Group.

We defined a new corporate governance model, drafted new policies and created a new compliance system based on global best practices. With these efforts, we have been honoring our commitment to develop and attract new business ethically, with integrity and transparency.

ETHICS,
INTEGRITY AND
TRANSPARENCY

The journey on which we have embarked to ensure that we act ethically, with integrity and transparency, in all our business activities encompasses a series of initiatives and decisions taken since 2016 that already have transformed our workplace.

The journey began when we affirmed our “Commitment to Brazil.” Since then, we have strengthened our governance, implemented a robust compliance system and undertaken commitments to the future and to society, which include contributing to initiatives that improve the business environment in which we operate.
