“We have several initiatives in development and governance, and James’ coming to Brazil is fundamental for the ongoing consolidation of our code of conduct’s practices. He will take to other companies invested by Actis around the world the best of what he saw here, like the rigor applied to our labor legal obligations, the deep social and environmental impact studies and our daily monitoring of building sites. Such practices place Atlantic in the level of a solid and competitive company”, highlights Brandão.
