In 2000, B3 launched into the Brazilian capital market three special listing segments (Level 1, Level 2 and New Market) for companies that voluntarily commit themselves to adopt differentiated practices of corporate governance. Such practices extend the rights of shareholders and increase the dissemination of information requirements, regarding to those already imposed by Brazilian laws. The aim of B3 with the creation of different levels of corporate governance was to provide a business environment that encouraged, simultaneously, the interest of investors and the valuation of companies.
