Our Sustainability Management System is based on five main elements: the Sustainability Policy of Eletrobras Companies, the Executive Committee for Sustainability Management of Eletrobras Companies, the Corporate Sustainability Management Indicators System (IGS System), the Value Creation Model and Integrated Reporting.


Sustainability Policy of Eletrobras Companies

The Sustainability Policy of Eletrobras Companies establishes the guidelines to be applied by Eletrobras companies regarding the promotion of corporate sustainability, ensuring the continuity of business, and contributing to sustainable development.

Executive Committee for Sustainability Management of Eletrobras Companies

The Executive Committee for Sustainability Management of Eletrobras Companies is led by the holding and has sustainability coordinators from all Eletrobras companies, in addition to having members responsible for reporting and indicators on 30 topics related to the sustainability of our business.


IGS System

Developed by Eletrobras Cepel, the Corporate Sustainability Management Indicators System (IGS System) is part of the portfolio of institutional projects for Research & Development + Innovation by Eletrobras companies. It has been widely used to manage indicators on topics related to the sustainability of our business, as well as a collection tool for information of our corporate reports.


Value Creation Model

More broadly, the sustainability theme permeates the various processes inherent to the business of Eletrobras companies, and an integrated action from their areas is essential, in a coordinated manner, fostering best practices and business continuity, as well as enhancing value generation to all stakeholders.

In this sense, the Value Creation Model brings together 30 value creation expectations related to our stakeholders.

Integrated Reporting

The Integrated Report, as a complement to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) methodology, has been helping companies to better communicate their value creation process to their stakeholders. Since 2018, we have presented our Annual Report in a "full integrated" format.


Annual Report

Our purpose is to put all our energy into sustainable development. The 2021 Annual Report presents our main results in 133 different indicators, considering all the set of Eletrobras companies. It is the primary source of environmental, social and governance information of the company and presents financial and operational performance data. 

In line with our objective of disclosing reliable information, the Annual Report 2021 was audited by PwC Brasil, according to international verification parameters, and presents an Assurance Report. See also the Independence Statement, issued by PwC.

EESG Journey

The EESG Journey aims to present a structured and integrated vision of our Economic, Environmental, Social and Governance (EESG) results. We adopted a structure composed of four pillars – Prosperity, Planet, People and Governance – subdivided into 12 themes. Each of these themes has associated indicators.

The World Economic Forum framework, released in September 2020, which proposes a global model to bring more comparability and consistency to the reporting of information related to corporate sustainability, was used as a basis.

Commitment to the 2030 Agenda

In 2015, during the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN), its 193 Member States unanimously approved a new global agenda for the next 15 years – the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, based on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets.

Covering a range of topics, the SDGs contribute to connecting corporate strategies with global priorities.

In our Strategic Plan 2020-2035, we defined nine SDGs as priorities:


For these prioritized SDGs, we established indicators and targets, which are linked to our Business and Management Master Plan (PDNG) and to the variable remuneration of administrators.


Sustainability 4.0 Program

As a result of the analysis of trends and best market practices with regard to corporate sustainability, we developed the Sustainability 4.0 Program, which is part of our Business and Management Master Plan (PDNG).

The program consists of 12 projects that aim to promote excellence in terms of sustainability in the Eletrobras companies' businesses and the generation of value for all stakeholders.
