              Policies and Statements

              ESG declaration

              We believe that health should always be in the forefront.

              Whether in people, in the environment or in business.

              And bringing health to others has been our passion for more than 40 years.

              We are a company composed of people passionate about caring.

              This immense love inspires us to be close to every Brazilian, promoting well-being and all that is needed to live a fuller life.

              And it is because we understand that a truly full life can only be lived in harmony with nature that we cultivate more sustainable relationships with the environment and sow these seeds of change throughout Brazil.

              These are the beliefs that have built and driven our business. But we want more. We want a Pague Menos even more diverse, inclusive and full of opportunities to grow, to develop and to transform.

              For all of these reasons, we go much further. Pague Menos now integrates a robust ESG agenda into its Strategic Plan, with commitments until 2030. Because our purpose is to always do more for the health of all.
