The Awards

The Talent in Sustainability Awards recognize the work of employees and interns that generate benefits and make the Votorantim companies increasingly better for people and the planet. Since 2013, this initiative has evaluated more than 800 submissions and awarded more than 80 projects.

This year, we are looking for projects in the following categories: environment, social engagement, productivity and efficiency, and health and safety.

The Awards are an initiative of the Votorantim Institute in partnership with Votorantim S.A., Votorantim Cimentos, Votorantim Energia, Nexa, Citrosuco, Banco Votorantim and Reservas Votorantim. Our concern for the environment and society is part of our history and of the construction of the future of Votorantim companies.
