Working with more eco-efficiently and adopting best practices in our value chain
We seek to reduce the environmental impact arising from our operations from a management committed to eco-efficiency by reducing the consumption of natural resources, waste generation, and greenhouse gas emissions in our operation and supply chain.

The reduction of water consumption and the diversification of supply sources are our strategic lines of action in water management. We have initiatives to source water from artesian wells and collect, treat and reuse rainwater and wastewater, reducing the dependence on river basins and increasing the share of alternative sources. The technological strategies that we act in the theme are contemplated in the installations of flow reduction devices, installation of vacuum flushes in our new building, equipment optimization and water meter automation.
We run on 100% renewable energy
The energy consumed by the bank has a low environmental impact: the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) since 2019 proves that 100% of our energy comes from renewable sources with zero emissions, considering the market-based approach. The incentive for renewable energy is also present in the expansion strategy for distributed energy generation, in the acquisition of energy from the Deregulated Market (ACL) and with the installation of photovoltaic panels for obtaining energy in administrative centers.
Our strategies to reduce energy consumption are focused on research and implementation of new technologies associated with energy efficiency. The main actions related to this topic were the installation of LED bulbs, replacement of equipment with high energy consumption, automation of infrastructure and migration of processing to cloud.
We work in our value chain with awareness initiatives to reduce the generation and ensure the correct disposal of waste derived from our activities.
To fulfill our environmental and social commitment, we have also implemented a series of awareness-raising actions and projects at our units to reduce and correctly dispose of waste, thus reducing landfill disposal. These initiatives include: the increase of selective collection in our branches, improvement in the waste selection (with third-party certification), replacement of single-use plastic inputs, increase in common composting and implementation of cigarette bit recycling, application of reverse logistics for coffee capsules, recycling of paper towels and replacement of individual waste garbage cans by associations of recyclables collectors.
