Businesses are increasingly seeking a more resilient way of operating, and there are few companies that work with ongoing projects and education for the transition. Today Oficina da Sustentabilidade (Sustainability Workshop) seeks to assess and co-create a more sustainable form of action, looking into the functioning of companies which are the most resilient alternative operation. From supporting the qualification of local suppliers to supporting disadvantaged to structure their own small business communities. The Oficina da Sustentabilidade believes that when they work on a local scale, and think globally, they can create more appropriate solutions to the problems. Allowing companies to play a role of planning and structuring of territorial action strategies, is a major focus of the workshop, looking to increasingly involve communities in the business of large companies, causing them to reduce their footprint and contribute to reduce social inequality.
