Our New Way of Being Copel

In 2023, after the transformation of Copel into a corporation, and recognizing the need to align all areas under a common purpose, a project for cultural transformation was developed and was named ” Nosso Novo Jeito de Ser Copel “, which is centered on 5 pillars:

  • Integrated businesses and operational efficiency – a single company, with clear and defined roles and responsibilities, acting in an integrated manner between the businesses and focusing on operational efficiency;
  • Fluid communication – constant, standardized communication, connected with the various existing projects and actions, accessible and fast;
  • People as a differentiator – high-performance teams, recognized, engaged and aligned with the organizational culture;
  • Customer focus – focus on the quality of services, the consumer and customer experience, and the relationship with suppliers and strategic partners;
  • Regulatory leadership – strategic action in the electricity sector, focusing on competitiveness and relationships with the market.
