Social and Environmental Program: energy to care for nature | Petrobras | Petrobras
Our Energy Transforms Society and the Environment
Through the Petrobras Social and Environmental Program, we contribute to the sustainability of the business, supporting social and environmental initiatives that generate value for the business and for society. We work in partnership with civil society organizations, with the aim of promoting positive social and environmental transformations in society, fostering dialogue with the communities where we operate, and strengthening our reputation by disseminating our values.
The Program is in line with our 2023-2027 Strategic Plan and our Social Responsibility Policy, which advocates the commitment to supply energy, respecting human rights and the environment, establishing responsible relationships with the communities where we operate, and overcoming sustainability challenges, such as the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The social and environmental investments structured in the Petrobras Social and Environmental Program are governed by the following guidelines:
In line with our commitment to the Global Compact, we support initiatives that contribute to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that make up the UN 2030 Agenda, which aims to fight poverty and inequality, ensure respect for human rights, promote the conservation of the environment, and face climate change. We prioritize initiatives aimed at SDG 4 (Quality Education), 8 (Sustainable Economic Development), 14 (Life below Water) and 15 (Life on Land).
The Petrobras Social and Environmental Program is also in line with other commitments to which we are signatories, including the UN Women Seven Empowerment Principles, the National Pact for the Eradication of Slave Labor, the Companies for Human Rights Open Letter, the Business Initiative for Racial Equality, and the National Pact for Early Childhood.
The selection and management of the social and environmental investment portfolio happen in compliance with the Petrobras Corruption Prevention Program. Before signing the contract, initiatives undergo prior analysis, and during the term of the contracts they are subject to Petrobras' integrity mechanisms. We also encourage good transparency and compliance practices within partner institutions.
The main results achieved by the social and environmental investment can be found in Petrobras' Sustainability Report.

The Petrobras Social and Environmental Program was launched in November 2013, based on the experience of previous programs. It brings together the Petrobras Development & Citizenship, Petrobras Environmental, Petrobras Sports & Citizenship, and Petrobras Community Integration Programs.
From 2014 to 2020, more than BRL 1 billion were invested in social and environmental projects, including actions for the conservation of environments and species, maintenance and recovery of biomes, carbon fixation and avoided emissions, management of water resources, protection and defense of the rights of children and adolescents, work education, environmental education, educational sports, among others.
In total, these projects mobilized more than 975,000 people in education actions and added up to more than 2 million hectares of areas with productive reconversion activities, recovery of degraded areas, and forest conservation or management, protecting around 470 species of fauna and 1,000 species of flora.
