We create strong bonds with local communities, acting in different areas and needs, such as education, culture, entrepreneurship and support to significant causes, maximizing our positive impact.
We believe that creating a culture of social responsibility requires commitment and action. Aware of the relevance and mission that many organizations have in terms of social and community intervention, we support several institutions, such as, for example, Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro, Instituto Português de Sangue and the Federação Nacional de Cooperativas de Solidariedade Social.
Within our community, we took part in the Board of the School Grouping Padre Benjamim Salgado. In this context, we have been participating in the annual awards given to the best students of the school, who are part of the Honour Board. We believe that education is an agent for transforming society.
We believe that sports act as an essential inclusion factor among young people. For this reason, we have conceded our stadium to Grupo Desportivo Joane, allowing us to offer excellent conditions to more than 200 athletes in training and schools and other local communities.
At our premises, in partnership with the Municipality of Famalicão, we inaugurated a business incubator, the first in Portugal, to operate in an active industrial context. Since then, we have driven local entrepreneurship and created opportunities for everyone to follow their dreams.
Through factory tours to the company, we promote contact, exchange of experiences and greater closeness with the leading universities and international technology centres in the fashion industry, contributing to the curricular development of students and their professional future.
At the cultural level, we sponsor Fundação de Serralves, Fundação Batalha de Aljubarrota and the Fundação Cupertino de Miranda in Vila Nova de Famalicão. We provide assistance to the implementation of various cultural initiatives and events within local communities.
