For the first time, natura is presenting the overall lines of its new Sustainability Vision. From this year, the company is also adopting GRI G4 and IIRC integrated reporting guidelines, both of which were launched in 2013
Natura has innovated in the way it presents the company in this report. In continuation of a movementinitiated in 2013, we have chosen the internet as the main channel for disclosure, both because of its reach and the reduced environmental impact it enables.
In this web space you will find all Natura's economic-financial, social and environmental results, as well as a detailed description of the company's interaction with its different stakeholder groups.We have sought to show how we create value for these stakeholders in the short, medium and long-term.
From this edition, we have adopted the fourth generation (G4) of GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) guidelines, launched in 2013. Just as we were early adopters of the GRI guidelines in 2000, believing in the importance of an international model to report on sustainability, we are now on engaging in the new global communication standard proposed by the IIRC (International Integrated Reporting Council). We believe that the integrated reporting of financial and non-financial information represents an important advance in the communication of corporate performance.
For the first time, we are also presenting the general lines of Natura's Sustainability Vision. This expresses our ambition of generating a positive impact in all our areas of activity– a challenge that may only be met through the ongoing engagement and collaboration of our entire relationship network.
I hope you enjoy it!
