Created in 2009, the Camargo Corrêa Institute (ICC) has aligned its social investment strategy with the innovation and sustainability of Camargo Corrêa Infra. The Day of Good Deeds undertakes this strategy.
The ICC applies innovative technology aligned with social demands, developing awareness and environmental education actions for communities in the regions where the construction company operates, connected to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Professionals from the construction company and their families and friends, along with community leaders, government authorities, clients and partners, work together to develop long-term social technology for communities.
The 2019 Day of Good Deeds was added to the Infra Digna agenda and, relying on the territorial diagnosis prepared in all areas where the company operates, installation of innovative equipment was planned for institutions that maintain community gardens.
The equipment, installed in 11 communities in Brazil and two in Colombia, is capable of producing sufficient gas and fertilizer for three hours of use in community kitchens (considering a single stove burner) from organic waste. The entire installation process, training for the population and subsequent maintenance of the machines is performed permanently by Camargo Corrêa Infra volunteer professionals
The Camargo Corrêa Institute completed 18 years of operation in 2019. During this period, it rolled out 103 Social Projects in 44 municipalities in 15 different states, directly benefiting 7,350 people with a total investment of R$ 28 million. This brought more than 200 partners together, including enterprises, government entities, NGOs and universities.
