Supplier Support (Inove)

Created in 2010, Inove – Vale’s Supplier Development Program – seeks to develop local suppliers by providing training, financial solutions and business incentives.

The program has been implemented in Brazil and works closely with trade unions, government agencies and both financial and educational institutions.

All products and initiatives are exclusively for Vale’s (contracted) suppliers in Brazil and are subject to analysis.
