Decisions on social investment in Aché prioritize bringing a better life to people living in situations of social vulnerability, especially in communities where Aché has its operations.
Following the model structured in the previous year, in 2022 Aché published two public calls for proposals for social projects supported by means of tax incentive laws. The public calls for proposals were divided into two fronts: one to support cultural and sports programs, and the other to support health in partnership with the Fund for Childhood and Adolescence (FIA) and the Fund for the Elderly.
Lending greater governance to the process, the selected projects were evaluated by a directive committee. To increase the transparency of the process even more, since 2022 Aché has been reporting projects in the period in which they were carried out, that is, the year in which the projects were used and their impact was felt. In 2022, therefore, Aché’s social impact was BRL 8.6 million, which was the result of projects that were undertaken following selection by way of public bidding notices and those the Company supported with its own resources
