“We continue with the proposal to expand our activities towards the sustainable development of the locations and communities where we operate and where we intend to operate. As an example of this commitment, in July 2021 we signed our participation in the Brazilian UN Global Compact Network, an initiative that aims to establish collective principles that ensure institutional positioning standards consistent with sustainable values and assumptions. This is our opportunity. To be able to contribute even more, within our business model, to overcoming global sustainability challenges.”
Pillars | Materiality
We define our materiality based on a sector benchmark analysis and research with external and internal strategic stakeholders. In this process, we selected the 3 main pillars to strengthen our ESG practices.
Log CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
“We have a robust, dynamic governance structure, operating under collegiate assumptions. In addition, we are gradually expanding and qualifying our decision-making support system. This is the Log reality when we talk about corporate governance.”

Revitalization of Municipal School Prof. Kássio Vinícius Castro Gomes
Social LOG’s first project was carried out around one of our projects, in Betim, MG, where we developed a partnership with Municipal School Prof. Kássio Vinícius Castro Gomes for the revitalization of the school space. Renovations were carried out in the school auditorium, library and audiovisual room. This initiative is capable of transforming the lives of children and adolescents, bringing knowledge, education and opportunities to an entire generation of this community.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
LOG is committed to acquiring the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) reference seal, with the objective of guiding our path in the development of sustainable practices in operations, especially in new projects to be implemented.
Organic vegetable garden
The Parque Torino Logistic Condominium, located in Betim/MG, one of the projects managed by Log, needed to recover its green areas and took the opportunity to expand a community garden, which benefits the local population and employees with fresh and pesticide-free vegetables.
The project has been expanded in accordance with the demands of the public (which has around 2,000 people circulating in the condominium and surrounding areas) and the appropriate times for planting and harvesting.
In 2020, a Plan for the Recovery of Degraded Areas – PRDA was proposed in the surroundings of the project located in the urban expansion zone of the municipality of Hidrolândia, Goiás. The projects developed in the PRDA are important instruments for mitigating negative impacts on degraded areas and are intended to recover the natural characteristics of the areas, based on a diagnosis of the basis needed to carry out the recovery.
The project proposed to the municipality of Hidrolândia, for the APP that is located in the vicinity of our project, aims to recover an area of 28,120.86 m² of degraded vegetation. The original vegetation has characteristics of riparian forest, typical species of water bodies margins (streams, lakes, springs etc.). 4499 seedlings of species native to the region were planted.
Clean Sources Energy
Intelligent energy management emerged as a prominent theme for LOG from the energy purchase negotiations by the Free Energy Market. This strategy, stimulated by government incentives, considers the direct purchase of energy from clean sources (biomass, wind, solar, hydraulic).
By promoting the use of clean and renewable energies, considered to be low carbon, we also contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Global Compact
Our commitment to the future is also being materialized in engagement actions with the main global references that guide discussions on sustainability. In July 2021, we formalized our adhesion to the Brazilian UN Global Compact Network, as well as the first steps to join the Minas Gerais SDG HUB. Moreover, based on our business model and strategic materiality, we defined the priority SDGs for Log’s operations, which are the focus of our greatest contribution to achieving the global sustainable development goals.
Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Our strategic planning is the basis for our major contribution to SDG 9. The expansion of the company’s business, with the TODOS POR 1.4 plan and the possibility of increasing the Brazilian logistics infrastructure and support for the expansion of industrial and service consumer markets.
We are expanding our Social Log Program to develop actions aimed at education with schools in the vicinity of our projects, as well as the development of new possibilities for educational projects and partnerships, both with communities and employees.
Clean and Accessible Energy
We understand that our contribution is already effective in this SDG by directly acting in the free energy market (clean energy). In addition, we are studying the possibility of generating our own energy (solar plants). We also have the plan, in the short term, to create our emissions inventory.
Sustainable Cities and Communities
By developing our projects in more peripheral locations in urban centers, we are contributing to the structural development of these regions. As an example of this, we highlight road and urban improvements around our warehouses.
In 2021, we developed our 2020 base year sustainability report, referenced by the GRI Standards model – essential option. The report (insert link) presents in detail all this information and others about our positioning and commitment to advancing in processes and actions in our business model that are increasingly aligned with current and future sustainability assumptions.
