In order to grow—and we are constantly growing—we need to discover new paths, but our R&D operation goes beyond exploration and production. In addition to operational research lines, we promote environmental research. Our future depends on the present we are building. We are all connected.
We have always been pioneers in unprecedented technological combinations, bringing technology and expertise together and implementing successful projects. We promote continual dialogue between institutions from various regions in Brazil, making it easier to exchange knowledge and drive research. We also promote innovation through sector committees, seminars, and dialogue with other exploration and production companies, regulatory agencies, and development institutes. We go further because we believe in sharing and partnership.
In 2011, we began operating and investing in Research & Development in the Partnership and Knowledge in Favor of Brazilian Sea Program. We participated in number of projects originating from legal obligations or otherwise conceived and carried out to create a positive impact on the knowledge of Brazil’s maritime and coastal environment, particularly mangroves. All information is shared with society and promotes the preservation of these environments.
Around 3 million people from 19 Brazilian states live in these regions. We are certain that investing in knowledge of the environment is a way to look out for society and protect its history, culture, and values, improving quality of life and clearing the path for a sustainable future.
