It is also important to go green, so we created the Citizen of the Planet program. The goal is simple: protecting the environment. We started reducing water, paper, and waste and because we all are all about improvement, since 2015 we have eliminated plastic waste and created a collection area for plastic caps delivered by our employees that will be handed to Dona Estefânia Hospital to help purchase material that will help take care of children, among several other initiatives.
