    More than just projects

    At Sonae, when we speak of what we do, it becomes about more than just simple projects. As we are aware of our context and our role in society, we take upon us to approach it not just as business, but as changes we must be a part of in order to create a better world.

    The Sonae Group keeps faithful to its socially responsible identity and culture, acknowledging the scope in such diverse areas; from the Environment and the fight against Climate Change, reducing the impact of everything we do, and increasing the use of renewable energies; to the fight against Inequality, through the promotion of a more diverse workplace and social landscape.

    This is why for us, we are not just presenting projects, we are telling life-changing stories on global issues. Stories than you can also be a part of.

    Feel free to browse through the different sections and learn more about how Sonae Group is taking decisive action towards a better society while doing the best for the planet.
