Governance and transparency
Fundo Vale, in accordance with its strategic vision for the next 10 years, declares that its main guidelines include transparency, governance and efficiency leveraged by an impact measurement and management system.
1. To support this principle and advance in the development of flows and practices, we developed GIMPACT – our model, which describes the behavior of our strategy and the achievement of our results.
We are here to promote a more sustainable, fairer and more inclusive economy.
Thanks to the Forest Goal, we have the opportunity to test our investment thesis, considering the best relationship between risk, return and positive social and environmental impacts, while developing innovative and scalable ideas and businesses. We can understand how and at what time the capital contributed by Fundo Vale can generate most value, whether as non-financial support or as seed capital, by accompanying the evolution process of each business, from the initial stage until they reach a degree of maturity and traction and so become ready for investment.
Social and environmental impact and
innovation management leader, Fundo Vale
Currently, the short-term economic gains from practices that degrade the environment and in many cases are illegal are often greater than those obtained from initiatives involving their conservation. Consequently, new approaches on the same economic scale are needed to generate greater shared value from sustainable land use. We believe that Vale’s 2030 Forest Goal can show concrete evidence that it is possible to reverse this situation through innovative solutions with significant positive social and environmental impacts.
Fundo Vale and equity stakes manager
When we offer alternatives, such as agroforestry systems, we provide the opportunity to generate income from conservation and enable a more sustainable system. It is easier to convince a producer to keep the forest standing. To do this, we need to support and encourage not only the most structured businesses, but also new initiatives in different links of production chains. We also seek to be agents that promote these environmentally friendly practices.

Fundo Vale has been working to strengthen the carbon and impact ecosystem. We understand that we have a significant role to play in supporting, training, promoting and investing in businesses that generate social and environmental impacts, influencing the dissemination of this subject and encouraging more and more businesses and innovative solutions, supported by a network of partners, to fulfill their role of transforming people and places.
Social and environmental innovation
leader, Fundo Vale
It isn’t a trivial matter to work in partnership, as each organization has its own agenda and goals. The path must be collective, because no one changes anything alone, but isn’t easy to agree on a fair path that serves everyone. You have to compromise in order to form partnerships and move forward.
