The InterCement Institute
InterCement believes that its role in the communities where it is present goes beyond economic value creation: our conviction is that we should generate shared value, investing in cultural, social, environmental and economic opportunities that benefit all stakeholders.
This is the reason why we set up the InterCement Institute: to work towards building a better world, by investing in the local assets to promote community development.The InterCement Institute is responsible for defining strategy, creating methodologies and implementing the private social investment of InterCement.
EACH AND EVERY INTERCEMENT EMPLOYEE IS A POTENCIAL CHANGE AGENT WHO CAN COUNT ON THE INSTITUTE TO ACT AS A CATALYST AND INCREASE HER/HIS POSITIVE IMPACT AND TRANSFORM REALITY. WE WORK TOGETHER IN THE MUNICIPALITIES WHERE INTERCEMENT IS PRESENT, AIMED AT:
- Strengthening community ties

This is how we seek to create a favorable and participative environment in prol of sustainable development and community autonomy.
In addition to Brazil, the Institute guides the social investment of InterCement in the seven other countries where the company has its production units. All the investments are focused on three action areas: Growth in the bottom of the pyramid markets with solutions for low income housing; Community Development and Sustainable & inclusive value-chains.
