Carrefour has just launched Não Vamos Esquecer website, which provides information on the commitments made by the company after the tragic death of João Alberto, contributing to the fight against structural racism in Brazil.
The site will function as a transparency portal, detailing the actions being implemented by the network since December 2020, in addition to being a space in which people can find out about Carrefour's specific actions aimed at combating racism. Another important section of the website is the Public Notices area, which will be intended to support actions that impact society. These notices will be subsidized by the Fund for Diversity and Fight against Racial Discrimination, created by Carrefour in 2020 and which has a contribution of BRL$ 40 million and will be available from March on.
Moreover, the site will also serve as a channel for dialogue with society, which will be able to send proposals for initiatives and projects, as well as suggestions or even complaints. People can also report any act of discrimination or racism through the Conexão Ética (Ethical Connection) channel.
As of the end of February, the website will also publish the status of each of the initiatives so that they can be monitored by society.
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.
