“This report reinforces our commitment to our customers, employees, investors, suppliers and partners, and it is a first step towards mapping our strengths and gaps so we can further expand our impact on Brazilian Education,” said Ari de Sá Neto, Arco’s founder and Chief Executive Officer.
Arco has nominated in the beginning of the year Juliana Gregory to be its ESG Director. Juliana has a degree in Computer Engineering from Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA) and an MBA from MIT, with experience in Education, Entrepreneurship and Impact Investing.

For 2022, we are committed to further evolve our solutions, improve our NPS (Net Promoter Score), which is currently the best in the industry, and grow organically to serve more schools and students across Brazil every day,” explains Juliana.
