In 2008, the BNDES completed its Corporate Planning, which defines the operation guidelines from 2009 to 2014. In addition to elaborating its strategy for the period, the BNDES has established its Mission and Vision. Through them, the BNDES is committed to the development of Brazilian society in an integrated fashion, which patently includes the social, regional and environmental scope.
The Mission defines the rationale for the existence of the BNDES and determines the fundamental focus of its activity. The Vision, on the other hand, outlines the future position that the Blank aims to achieve by establishing its long-term objectives.
To foster sustainable and competitive development in the Brazilian economy, generating employment while reducing social and regional inequalities.
To perform its duties as the development bank of Brazil, an institution of excellence that is innovative and proactive in light of the challenges in our society.
In keeping with the Bank’s Mission and Vision, three integrated issues were selected as the new challenges to be tackled: innovation, socio-environmental development, as well as local and regional development, prioritizing the less developed regions in Brazil.
The Bank has also defined guidelines focused on its international operations in the Corporate Planning. One of them is the expansion and diversification of its resources of funding in Brazil and other countries, in partnership with the financial industry and the capitals market. Strengthening the international presence of Brazilian companies has also been emphasized. To support the implementation of these strategies, two branches were inaugurated in 2009, one in London and another in Montevideo.
Ethics is the foundation on which the BNDES has been built since its creation. With this, the BNDES requires that its professionals maintain impeccable ethical conduct when carrying out their assignments. Such conduct is translated into, above all, responsibility and honesty. We preserve the respect and trust in our relations, and our efforts are characteristically transparent. Our main principle is that development is only possible when accompanied by ethics.
The challenge to be the Brazilian Development Bank requires all of us to maintain a professional and personal commitment to fomenting and supporting the growth of a diversified, integrated, dynamic, inclusive, sustainable and competitive production structure.
We aim for cooperation between the public and private sectors, as well as to strengthen undertakings, regardless of their size. Innovation is the driving force behind this competitive and sustainable development. Promoting socio-environmental sustainability and reducing inequalities in the nation and in Brazilian society are the guidelines of our project for the future.
Our operations are guided by public principles, evident through the irreversible commitment to the interests of Brazilian society, a focus on the collective and the care taken when using public resources.
We aim at achieving excellence in all we do, in the effort to carry out the Bank’s mission. Excellence is due to a combination of technical competence, applied knowledge, focus on relevance and innovating capacity, all propelled by persistent efforts to reach our goal.
