In this item, government companies usually score lower," says the note adding, "The oil industry average score in corporate governance was 58.61%".

Petrobras also ranked high in the "Transparency" evaluation: 82.44%, while industry’s average was 54%. "This excellent performance is explained by the company’s practice of keeping the market always informed about everything that happens in it, be it small or great," says the note.
