We believe that our transparent approach to doing business is the only way to fully engage the stakeholders in a meaningful and mutually beneficial relationship. Catoca understands that it is also its responsibility to seek sustainable actions for the communities where it is inserted, for society in general and for its main stakeholders, such as employees, customers and suppliers. In this way, it has developed programs in the fields of Education, Health, Culture, Sports and Leisure, Environment and Safety
