After hearing the proposals of the External and Independent Committee originated from historical demands of black organizations, Carrefour Brasil started, on December 14th, the internalization of security services. The internalization process started by the four hypermarkets in Rio Grande do Sul, in a pilot project, including the Passo D’Areia store, in Porto Alegre.
The new model is the starting point for transforming its security model and is part of the commitments announced by the network.
The recruitment process and training of professionals for the stores had an association that brings together black entrepreneurs from the Porto Alegre region. The entire security internalization process is focused on the implementation of anti-racist practices and a culture of respect for human rights, in addition to considering the representativeness of the Brazilian population (50% women and 56% afro-descendants) as a commitment.
Currently, there are more than 30 internalized security professionals.
On the night of November 19, 2020, João Alberto Silveira Freitas was killed on the premises of our store in Passo D'Areia, in Porto Alegre/RS, in an act that does not represent and is not consistent with Carrefour's values.
On this website, we reinforce the actions we are taking in view of this fact and the commitments made to society and to our body of more than 100,000 employees throughout Brazil. With the objective of continuing to evolve as a company and contributing to the fight against structural racism in Brazil.
