Merco points out that, for the preparation of these lists, it carried out a study with more than 47,235 surveys, seven evaluations and 25 sources of information, verified through an independent review by KPMG. Merco also involved the participation of 1,110 executives from large companies, as well as 90 NGO managers and other opinion groups.
