WEG was the Capital Goods sector highlight in the 2022 Corporate Reputation and Leaders Ranking, conducted by Consultoria Merco, which has been a reference in Latin America and Spain in assessing the reputation of companies for over 20 years, and audited by KPMG.

In addition to ranking the companies with the best reputation in 36 different business areas, the survey also points out the 100 business leaders with the best reputation in the country, including Mr. Harry Schmelzer Jr., CEO of WEG.

The survey is created with a collection of responses from over 5,000 people who were divided into groups including general public, financial analysts, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), unions, consumer associations, financial journalists, university professors, government representatives and social media leaders, in addition to Merco Digital, through which the evaluation of digital channels and social media is carried out.
