Corporate Sustainability

Locaweb Group has grown a great deal since it made its debut in the capital market and we know that our power to transform the society in which we operate increases day by day. Today, devising an action plan for the sustainable development not only of the company, but also to provide a positive contribution to society and the planet, is one of our priorities.

With an area of 55 thousand m² and 32 thousand m² of preserved green area, our headquarters have an architecture built for Cloud technology, optimizing space and consumption. A sustainable initiative adopted was the technology that ensures high energy efficiency in the system, for when the temperature and humidity of the air are desirable, the system captures the air, brings it into the room and makes a controlled mixture with the return of the servers and, as a result, it is possible save energy in favorable weather conditions.

Going beyond what we already have, we believe that it is our duty as a company to add value and contribute to a better world in all possible aspects. In 2021, we experienced a period of data consolidation on ESG actions in the Locaweb Group and of reflexion upon the maturity level of each unit in relation to the topic.

In this mapping we detected some actions that are already complete and many opportunities to contribute even more! We have defined, in line with our business strategy and operating niche, 5 priority SDO (Sustainable Development Objectives), by which we will guide the action plan and carry out a more in-depth diagnosis of how to contribute to its achievement.

We would now like to speak about our most valuable asset: our employees. Here at Locaweb, we value and respect the diversity of each Locaweber and, along these lines, we carry out affirmative actions aiming to promote more inclusion and equity to minority groups.

Our 2021 Trainee Program was the most diverse of all editions: Women accounted for 50% of those approved, 30% were people from the LGBTQIA+ community, and 30% were black.

As a result of these and other actions, in 2021 all companies of the Group that took part in the survey (Locaweb – with Locaweb Pro, Nextios and All iN -, Locaweb Commerce – with Tray, Tray Corp, Yapay -, KingHost, Etus and Delivery Direto), were granted the Great Place to Work certification for organizational climate. KingHost and Tray also entered the ranking of the best companies to work for in Brazil, in the 22nd and 17th positions, respectively, in the category of medium-sized companies. Locaweb, Tray and KingHost were among the 70 Incredible Places to Work, a result of survey conducted by FIA Employee Experience (Feex), which proves our concern for the well-being of our employees and the sustainable development for all.

We have a humane management approach and a real concern for all people to feel free to be whoever they are, regardless of their hierarchical level or business unit they belong.

Inclusion and Diversity

In Locaweb group, we have a committee focused on Inclusion and Diversity, working on 5 different fronts. Women, LGBTQIA+, People with Disabilities, Culture and Origin, and Generations. Since 2019, the Committee has been organizing, collecting, and consolidating data from the Inclusion and Diversity Census, in addition to proposing panel discussions, affinity groups, training programs and assisting in hiring diverse people.

In 2021, we once again carried out the Inclusion & Diversity census and found that we reached 30% of women in leadership positions, an increase of 10 p.p. over the results of the 2020 survey. With the purpose of increasing these figures, we created our first Mentoring for Women program, which aims to start a development partnership applying the 70/20/10 concept, encouraging the sharing of experiences among women who are already in leadership positions and those in the succession pipeline. Currently there are 27 mentors and mentees across the entire group.

Investing in human capital is our rule of thumb. We have in-company programs aimed at the employee’s well-being, professional development, events for fun and relaxation, which is also one of our values. We are always on the lookout for ways to improve the quality of life of the people who work in the Group.
