TGS supports sustainability efforts in Brazil with film festivals

10/18/2019

RIO DE JANEIRO – TGS sponsored and participated at the recent Santa Catarina Ridge International Environmental Film Festival (FICASC in Portuguese) in the Brazilian cities of Lages, Urubici and São Joaquim. This event, organized in conjunction with the Latin American Environmental Film Festivals, and which focuses on the causes related to sustainability, drew an audience of nearly seven thousand people. The festival aims to promote discussion on such urgent and vital matters to the planet as food sovereignty, permaculture, environmental degradation, climate change and the preservation of indigenous cultures. TGS’ involvement in this event is part of the company’s focus to expand its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives and develop its global Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts.

João Correa, country manager for Brazil at TGS said, “Our investment in sustainability efforts both within Brazil and globally is a strong commitment by us. TGS contributes directly to the oil and gas sector in a challenging period when the matter of environment preservation is taking the limelight. Support of events such as the FICASC, helps bring awareness and exposure to ESG and sustainability as we continue to be involved in the movement on environmental initiatives as we seek to transition towards a sustainable future.”

This project is the latest in a list of similar CSR activities undertaken by TGS in Brazil. In 2017, TGS (then Spectrum) contributed to a cultural photographic publication showcasing Brazilian talent and in 2018 the company partnered with Project TAMAR to monitor turtle behavior in the South Atlantic in order to better understand the nesting season, migration, feeding and the possible changes arising from seismic activity.

The focus on ESG continues to strengthen among stakeholders, particularly among in the investor community. As a member of the UN Global Compact, TGS remains committed to ESG and sustainability and is currently expanding its strategy for 2020 and beyond.
