Actions For Society
What Have We Done To Help Fight Covid-19?
Since 2020, we have donated more than R$ 10M to more than 20 projects throughout the country. In 2021, we adhered to the Together for the Vaccine* movement, giving cold chambers to 23 cities in Paraíba, Pernambuco, and Sergipe, enabling them to receive and store Covid-19 vaccines, in addition to donating our products and hospital supplies to hospitals and ERs specialized in triaging and fighting Covid-19.
Among other things, we are committed to transparency. At Dexco, we share with our employees, families, and partners important tips and guidance that reinforce preventive measures against the coronavirus. Here, we believe we need to keep going, and only by sticking together and acting responsibly can we beat this pandemic.
