As part of our legacy, we have the Esso brand and the Tiger mascot in the gas stations. Also important to mention is The Reporter Esso radio cast and TV news show, which subsequently gave birth to the Esso Journalism Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the history of Brazilian journalism for six decades.
