We are willing to continually challenge our own business model and seek new opportunities to ensure business sustainability and create value for our stakeholders. We also invest heavily in the process of digital transformation. We adopted new working methodologies, expanded the use of data for decision making and created an area dedicated specially to putting us side by side with the most modern in the world. Our goal is to be a company that is increasingly focused on our consumers.
In this respect, since 2016 we have been involved in a process of cultural transformation and revitalization, in which, as part of a co-creation initiative, we have defined Duratex's Way of Being and Doing, based on four attributes (People, Processes, Customers and Results) and the behaviors we expect from our employees as well as those we do not tolerate. The purpose of this strategy is to gain efficiency and assertiveness in decisions and to become even more innovative, maintaining our leading role in the segment in which we operate.
Our commitment with the future translates into our strategic plan Duratex 2025, which guides our actions and decision-making for business growth in four avenues (Digital Platform, Systems for Living Spaces, Water Solutions and Forestry Solutions), and in our Sustainability Strategy, which sets concrete goals to be fulfilled until 2025 and is related to eight topics associated with the People, Processes and Products and Services pillars.
Over 27,000 hours of workshops regarding our corporate culture were offered in 2018.
We are committed to achieving 45 of sustainability goals by 2025.
We have invested 2% of our revenue in innovation.
More than 90% of employees of all functions trained on the strategic plan.
We are open and flexible in our approach to understanding our customers and consumers, because we want to have them more and more as partners, with whom we evolve and learn. We also want to be supporters and promoters of ideas and businesses capable of increasingly qualifying the sectors in which we operate, promoting well-being for the whole society. This includes our commitment to being more and more efficient with regard to environmental issues as well. We look for ways to increasingly reduce the consumption of natural resources, from production to consumption of our services and products, preserving quality, design and innovation.
We also listen to the communities in which we are present to be partners in promoting development, creating or supporting projects and initiatives that can change the reality of people.
All this is done without forgetting that in order to distribute value, we must create it. Thus, we have adopted a diligent, rational and strategic operational and financial management, which is becoming more and more accurate and prepares us to capture the resumption of economic growth in Brazil in the coming periods.
