Human Rights Program

Copel has maintained, since 2018, the Human Rights Program, aligned with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and founded on the following practices:-

– analysis, development and refinement of Copel’s policies and regulations for prevention, inspection and mitigation of violations;

– production and dissemination of didactic materials, with information about Copel’s denunciation channels to be accessed, in case violations are identified;

– holding courses, lectures and awareness-raising actions aimed at the internal public, outsourced employees, the production chain and the local community;

The Human Rights Program is related to the Sustainable Development Goals, especially to SDG 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth, which is one of the 5 SDGs prioritized by Copel and by the Brazilian electricity sector.
