Social responsibility

GRI 103-1, GRI 103-3, GRI 403-2

JBS understands that its corporate social responsibility should be exercised in every aspect, especially in communities where it operates and with a focus on the health and safety of its team members.

JBS has a major social impact on the regions in which it operates. Facilities are mostly located in areas that lie far away from major urban centers, where the Company naturally has a bigger economic and social influence. Among other things, this means that the Company has the chance to play a role in developing the local community. Through which its production units provide people without specific educational backgrounds with access to differential professional education, in a fast and effective process of inclusion.

The Company’s approach is based on community development actions and donations that allow it to positively impact the places where JBS team members live and work, therefore benefiting the community where it is located. Along these same lines, JBS supports initiatives geared toward educating and developing children and young people, through professional training for young people and adults and training and social inclusion of people with disabilities As with other areas, each business platform has the autonomy to establish their own programs in this area – through sponsorships, team member volunteering activities and direct investments.

Occupational health and safety

GRI 103-1, GRI 103-2, GRI 303-3

Occupational health and safety are essential to business development at JBS. As with other themes, this follows the Company’s global principles, complying with regional programs and local action plans. In addition, the Company strictly complies with Occupational Health and Safety regulations established by local standards and laws in every region where it operates.

Management policies and programs are revised annually, along with key indicators. This measure makes it possible for the Company to make the adjustments needed to assure compliance with corporate requirements for occupational health and safety conditions. The Company works to train its team members on accident prevention, compliance with legal requirements, spreading a culture of occupational health and safety and continual improvement of its processes.

JBS also monitors key safety indicators on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, so that health and safety decisions are made quickly and prioritized. Monthly verification makes it possible for the Company to monitor the evolution of frequency and severity rate indicators as well as improvement actions. Likewise, action plans are monitored and a check is done on any pending matters related to legal nonconformance found in safety inspections, as well as on the mandatory training indicators for each job.

Training on occupational health and safety was provided to 105,000 team members, with R$ 698.86 million invested in this area, 133% more than in 2018.
