The EducaODS Program is an initiative of Copel that aims to consolidate the actions in favor of the fulfillment of the 2030 Agenda and the Voluntary Commitments assumed by Copel, linking them to the strategic reference and the organizational values of the Company.
The focus is on establishing guidelines, raising awareness, disseminating and engaging stakeholders in actions, strengthening management, culture and education for sustainability.
Among the Company’s Voluntary Commitments, there is the signing of the Global Compact of the United Nations – UN, in 2000, and adherence to the 2030 Agenda and the SDG Sustainable Development Goals, in 2016.
The Program interrelates through various actions with other sustainability programs (ESG), such as Eco-efficiency, Solid Waste Management, Cultivating Energy (Community Gardens), Diversity, Accessibility, Electricity (Volunteering) and Climate Change.
As it is directly linked to several actions for the culture of sustainability, the EducaODS Program contributes to achieving the priority SDGs of Copel and the electricity sector 7; 8; 9; 11 and 13, and also SDG 4, which can be understood as an instrument for the dissemination of knowledge in favor of sustainable development.
With the purpose of sensitizing the general public to issues related to corporate sustainability, Copel makes available, widely and free of charge, materials such as booklets, folders, games and posters, in addition to the Code of Conduct, the Moral Harassment Booklet, Primer on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace and Primer on Human Rights.
Copel uses several instruments to expand and facilitate internal and external communication: it works to raise awareness of sensitive topics through publications on its intranet, an internal social network, and publishes its management actions and strategies in annual reports, which are accessible to the public. external public and stakeholders.
The Sustainability Education Bulletins aim to instruct and raise awareness among internal and external audiences about issues related to sustainability, relating them to the Development Goals for Sustainability (SDGs), proposed by the United Nations (UN). Timeless, they have a language that is accessible, and the way they are presented encourages the reader to deepen their knowledge and learn more about Copel’s actions.
Between 2015 and 2016, the Bulletin had monthly editions, and in 2017 it started to be published only on Copel’s intranet. In 2018, the publication returned, now in semi-annual editions.
