Sustainability is one of the main elements of Ultra’s corporate culture, supporting the company’s growth for nearly 80 years. In this long trajectory, the fundamentals are the valuing of ethics in business, culture of citizenship and the pursuit of excellence in standards of health, safety and environment, among other guidelines outlined in the Sustainability Model.
Every year, Ultra’s operations have evolved and been established under the social and environmental responsibility guideline. In practice, the responsible, ethical and transparent conduct of business materializes itself in different operational excellence programs, adapted to the respective products and services, in addition to the social and environmental actions in the communities of the regions where it is present, related to work, education and culture.
The Ultra Sustainability Model covers five pillars – Safety, Environment, People, Products and Services and Value Chain, which unfold into 28 performance and management indicators, aligned with the corporate sustainability guidelines. Due to the characteristics of each market where we operate, our businesses maintain individual policies related to the social and environmental, health and safety activities based on those directives.
To support the monitoring and selection of initiatives within the themes defined in the Sustainability Model, Ultra also monitors a set of performance and management indicators annually, covering various aspects in the economic, social and environmental scopes. This data is a part of the company’s decision-making matrix, like the initiatives set forth in the organic investment plan.
