Success is the result of working together

Wherever we are present, we want to know who surrounds us. Close relationships with surrounding communities are essential for sustainable development.At Sonae MC we design specific programs that respond to social needs. We seek to challenge our local partners and involve our employees in bringing about positive changes in society.

Institutional support, event sponsorship, volunteering and social responsibility programs or birth support campaigns are some of the projects that materialize the commitment to our context and society.
