On July 17, 2013 BM&FBOVESPA issued a press release reporting that “BM&FBOVESPA’s Board of Directors has approved the company’s Sustainability Policy. The Policy is structured into four pillars for action – Market, Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance – covering both internal management and relations with the company’s various stakeholder groups.

‘This Policy reaffirms the strategic importance of sustainability to our company,” said Edemir Pinto, CEO of BM&FBOVESPA. ‘It will be an internal and external driver of progress on the sustainability agenda, informing our activities both as a public corporation and as an inductive agent of best practice in the Brazilian market.’

The Policy’s launch to employees on July 10 marked the onset of a major initiative to develop awareness of sustainability and engage with all areas of BM&FBOVESPA on the theme. The initiative will involve 15 areas of the Exchange during the first phase, which lasts until end-2013.”
