Vision of sustainability

GRI 102-12

OdontoPrev takes seriously sustainability and sustainable development concepts embodied in the Company’s history, which contribute to value creation when balancing economic, social, and environmental aspects. How the Company takes care of society, its employees, and beneficiaries reflects its commitment to sustainability.

Always pursuing a more sustainable performance, OdontoPrev continuously works to reduce its environmental impacts on processes and services, compensating its emissions, and assessing eventual mitigating actions. As an innovative company in the sector, it believes that it is its responsibility to foment this topic, acting to coordinate and promote new technologies researches.

Since 2004, the Company has been maintaining a Sustainability Policy, which institutionalized this topic. A version was updated in 2018 which defines the objectives and the guidelines to be observed by all employees. One of the requirements is the publication of a Sustainability Report, which shall present the results of the Sustainability Annual Plan, approved by the Company’s Board of Executive Officers.

Aware of the relevance of this topic for society and the emphasis of joint efforts in order to achieve goals and objectives that mitigate the social and environmental impacts, OdontoPrev is a signatory of international initiatives, namely, the Global Compact and the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles.

Women’s Empowerment Principles

Global Compact

The Global Compact is promoted by the United Nations (UN) and aims at mobilizing the business community to adopt sustainable values through the 10 principles to comply with the good practices concerned with human rights, labor relations, environmental management, and anti-corruption. To reinforce its support to the Global Compact, the Company publishes its COP (Progress Communication) on its Investor Relations website and this initiative’s official website.

A joint initiative between the Global Compact and the UN Women, the Women’s Empowerment Principles combine values and practices seeking to assist the business community to build up gender equality and women’s empowerment initiatives.

Today, the Company maintains active programs capable of addressing a solid performance across all these principles.

Over 500 people are benefited from OdontoPrev’s dental plans in its partnership with Tide Setubal Foundation. Taking into account that we assist socially vulnerable people, perhaps some of them never experienced something like that, as they made other choices in life.

Since I was a child, I had contact with Dentistry, my uncle was a dentist. I loved to see him working. Today, I am proud to be a dentist, strong-willed to serve patients. OdontoPrev not only takes care of the patient, but it also takes care of services through satisfaction surveys, which check service provided by the dentist, thus, everyone wins, patients, and dentists.
