Centrais Elétricas de Santa Catarina – CELESC, provides large areas of the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina with electricity. As a partially state-owned service provider, the company has strong ties to the local communities that they serve, and has identified a number of ways  to make a direct contribution to children’s rights.

This Deep Dive is part of our series that looks at how companies find solutions and harness opportunities that create meaningful change.
