Mindful of our social mission, we go far beyond our field of operation. Through DPC Transforma, our Social and Environmental Responsibility program, we promote both internal activities with our employees and external efforts in support of socio-cultural projects. In addition to raising awareness about the impacts of our daily actions, the program aims to encourage the adoption of simple but game-changing practices, helping to build the society we long for.
The program also seeks to promote new means of access to culture and education, especially amid such a challenging economic scenario, thus contributing to the development of the regions where we operate and reinforcing our social commitment and corporate responsibility.

Every year, we select and sponsor projects in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo through culture incentive laws effective in each municipality. This effort further reinforces DPC's goal of being increasingly engaged in relevant actions that promote transformation and make a positive impact on society.

Multiplique o Bem
Based on the idea that knowledge is a tool capable of changing people's lives, the Multiplique o Bem (Multiply Good) project aims to promote teaching methods that are more engaging and interactive in order to get young people motivated to stay in school.
This effort aims to implement workshops on robotics, game development, design, computer programming and animation in public schools for 250 students, and provide training for 200 teachers and hold an annual competition involving 50 projects.
Tack Festival + Desafio Tack
The Desafio Tack (Tack Challenge) helps ignite the entrepreneurial spirit within high school students from government institutions. Based on the methodology of the Innovation Camp Program, run by non-profit NGO, Junior Achievement - the world's largest youth entrepreneurship organization - this competition tasks teams of students with designing innovative solutions to cultural issues.
The activity brings together over 250 teenagers from 20 public schools across the country. The winning team is awarded a trip to the Brazil Conference in Harvard, USA.
In 2023, the Tack Festival enters its 6th edition. This is a free event held in the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden, with a whole day dedicated to workshops and innovative activities, and the announcement of the winning team of the Tack Challenge.
The Turista Literário (Literary Tourist) invites children and teenagers to take a deep dive into the fantastic world of reading. This project, which is held in public schools, involves drawing up a guided reading plan for teachers to work with.
Students are given a package that contains a book, sensory items and exclusive digital content. Meetings are also held to include recreational storytelling activities and reading mediation. Around 1,000 public school students are benefitted from the in-person or virtual activities that this project offers.
