For a healthier society

Following our purpose of taking care of people’s health and well-being closely at all times of life, we carry out a series of social initiatives, managed by the company’s Social Investment team. All actions are geared to have a positive impact on the integral health of people in the regions where we operate, and also aim to strengthen the culture of donation in our own community of employees and customers.

Each day new ideas and opportunities for actions appear in the area of Social Investment in RD, supported by three major pillars: actions in partnership with customers, initiatives involving our employees and corporate operations.
Get to know each of them better:

Partnership with customers

Based on the concept of microdonation, we offer customers products that reverse income to causes and also a technology that transforms change into donation.

Network of Employees

We have a volunteer program that already has the membership of more than 2,700 employees, and an emergency fund to support them in unexpected and calamity situations.

Corporate Operations

Through company resources or sponsorships based on incentive laws, we support dozens of organizations and projects related to our purpose.

  • In partnership with Editora MOL, we support the production of the publications Sorria and TODOS, which are sold in our stores and have their sales reverted to relevant causes aligned with our focus on health. The resources raised from the sale of magazines, calendars, books and other socio-editorial products of Sorria and TODOS are donated to life-saving institutions throughout Brazil.

    This collection model is a pioneering initiative and has already allowed us to donate more than R$ 30 million. The project, in which RD acts as an agent of viability and stimulating the culture of donation, is considered one of the largest and longest-lived Brazilian marketing cases related to the cause. In 2019, the magazines Sorria and TODOS were the best-selling in Brazil.

But we reached the end of that year with the participation of 6.9% of the staff. The capillarity of our business, with more than 2.400 stores in 23 states, was a challenge won with the creation of an online platform that allowed us to integrate and multiply forces.

    The priority focus of actions are activities related to health and well-being, but other actions and causes are welcome. Ideally, the supported institutions are located close to our stores and distribution centers.
