07th December, 2023

In our III EDUCATION & ESG Forum, held on December 7, 2023, we debated emerging themes on the sustainability schedule.

Understanding the importance of diversity from the perspective of neuroscience and mental health is a relatively recent field of study, but one that proves to be essential in the search for more inclusive and healthier societies. The way our brains process, react and adapt to diversity plays a key role in promoting psychological well-being and creating environments that respect and value individual differences and drive positive change in our communities and societies as a whole.

Corporate integrity goes beyond compliance with laws and regulations. It encompasses the adoption of ethical practices, transparency in operations, social responsibility and commitment to truth and justice. Lack of integrity can result in irreparable damage to reputation and trust, directly affecting the viability and growth of organizations.

We will discuss the challenges and benefits for corporate integrity, highlighting the need to disseminate and promote the best compliance and integrity practices, which have gained greater relevance for all types and levels of organizations, and how to promote a culture of integrity that permeates all the interests of stakeholders.

Climate change is one of the most urgent challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. Scientific studies point to a constant increase in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events. Between 2000 and 2019, there was an approximately 35% increase in climate disasters compared to the previous decade, marking floods, hurricanes, prolonged droughts and intense wildfires as the most frequent events, affecting millions of lives annually.

Estimates project that, if current trends persist, more than 100 million people could live in extreme poverty by 2030 due to the effects of climate change. In 2022 alone, economic losses resulting from natural disasters around the world reached the USD 313 billion mark. It is alarming to note that 73% of these global losses were recorded in Brazil.

These numbers highlight the urgency of coordinated actions and global policies to mitigate climate risks. Faced with this critical scenario, the question arises: What tools can be used to effectively manage the risks associated with climate change?
