Evidence of compliance with the corporate policy of social and environmental responsibility of a company is not always fully matched to the daily lives of each of its regional managers or business units. Consolidated information on business reporting often generalizes individual experiments and thus hides the lack of capacity of the company to meet the parameters of social management and environmental responsibility. This article records the experience of the Management of Land and Oil Terminals Transpetro in the Midwest to face the challenge of overcoming this trend by developing mechanisms to regionally monitor performance in various dimensions of environmental responsibility and the relationship with internal public, environment, communities, government and society, among other things. The work was initiated in 2008 with the creation of the Center for Environmental and Social Responsibility, made up of professionals from different sectors of management, whose first task was to make a diagnosis which would position Transpetro Midwestern regarding the fulfillment of general requirements of social responsibility corporately as well as those specific requirements of the gas sector and energy. Compared with the “Corporate Social Responsibility Indicators”, this diagnosis has provided an overview of environmental responsibility actions already undertaken in the management system, and has pointed to those areas that require greater commitment. This allows the business unit to demonstrate why Petrobras is considered a benchmark for social and environmental responsibility in Brazil and the world.
