Brazilian Companies Embrace Sustainability

Brazilian companies have embraced the concept of sustainability according to a new report from Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.

"The Sustainability Chain: A Survey of Views and Practices of Brazilian Companies That Influence the Future of the Planet" reports that:
  • "Sustainability has taken its place on the agenda of companies doing business in Brazil and is already perceived as an essential factor in relations with various stakeholders;
  • "Concern for the theme permeates all stage of the production chain;
  • "The current economic scenario has not affected the investment decisions of the majority of companies in relations to actions involving sustainability."

With Brazil posed for dramatic economic growth, local trends there will become even more visible throughout the world.
