One of Tigre's fronts for the construction of a better world are its social initiatives. Our long arm is a characteristic of internal mobilization that extends also to the communities where we are present. Whether in internal or society-oriented programs, we always put people first, through social programs and to promote diversity and equity. Know the company's initiatives:
ICRH, the social branch of Tigre, is one of the pillars of the Group's sustainability concept, which is built on the balance between economic activity, care for the environment and the people well-being.

Instituto Trata Brasil
Through the Instituto Trata Brasil, we seek to alert the population and government about the importance of water and sewage treatment. The Institute is an OSCIP - Organização da Sociedade Civil de Interesse Público [Public Interest Civil Society Organization], made up of companies with an interest in the advances of basic sanitation and the protection of the country's water resources, whose mission is to contribute to the improvement of population health and the protection of water resources of the country through the universalization of access to treated water services, collection and treatment of sewage, as well as the reduction of water losses.
Tigre was one of the founders of Trata Brasil in 2007 and, currently, our president Otto von Sothen holds the position of Chairman of the Board. Trata Brasil develops projects in communities vulnerable to basic sanitation and where the lack of water and daily contact with open-air sewers are part of the reality of families. Within the work scope there are three performance axes: "Água e Cidadania pela Vida" [Water and Citizenship for Life]; "Trata Brasil na Comunidade" [Treat Brazil in the Community]; and "Apoio ao Saneamento Rural e em Áreas Isolada" [Support for Rural Sanitation and in Isolated Areas]

Agreement with the Regional Prison of Joinville
To help resuscitate and reduce prison sentences, 20 inmates work in the prison itself with the assembly of pieces, identification of codes and quantities of products to be sent to the Distribution Center. Tigre ships all necessary components, packaging and labels.
Agreement with the Centro de Ressocialização do Rio Claro
In the same way as the agreement with the Regional Prison of Joinville, the objective is to assist in resocialization. Thirty-eight distressed people carry out internal activities in the assembly and packaging of products. In February 2016, Tigre expanded this partnership with 30 positions for re-education of the semi-open regime to provide services in the Accessories sector of the Centro Operacional do Rio Claro, contributing more effectively to the resocialization process.
