With participative governance, we mobilize the public authorities, private initiative and civil society, to promote sustainable territorial development

In our corporate environment, governance comprises a management system, including communication and processes, through which we are directed and monitored. This involves our relationship with the Board of Trustees, oversight, and inspection and control bodies. It also covers the system of interacting with our partner institutions, guided by the principle of participative governance.

We promote best governance practices based on the following pillars!

    • Responsibility
    • We comply with the duty of accepting the consequences that stem from our acts;
    • Ethics
    • We act in compliance with legal, statutory and procedural regulatory standards;
    • Integrity
    • We guarantee that ethical integrity permeates all of our internal and external relations;
    • Transparency
    • We act transparently, offering frank, rapid, and precise communication; 
    • Equity
    • We treat all of those who interact with us fairly and equally; and
    • Accountability
    • We present clear information about our investments and results to partners and society.

Participative governance: the way we mobilize the public authorities, private initiative and civil society

From our social technology, we join forces to combat poverty and inequality, mobilizing the public authorities, private initiative and civil society, to promote sustainable territorial development in vulnerable regions.

This participative governance is strengthened by our work in partnership with civil society in the locations where we operate. Together, we take on the commitment, so that the young people and their families can live in the countryside, in harmony with the environment.

Participative governance is one of the differentials of our activities and is based on the principles of ethics, integrity and transparency. It takes place through a process, in a permanent construction that strives to develop and establish the constant practice of dialogue and liaison between all of the social agents involved. Therefore, it directly involves communities in their different forms of social organization, and the authorities, at various levels. The joint action between the first, second and third sectors allow the creation of a collaborative space that reinforces the commitment of the journey towards sustainability.

ESG Criteria – find out more!

We also strive to promote greater alignment between our activities, entrepreneurial practices and ESG – environmental, social and corporate governance – investment by partners and investors which uses these criteria when making business decisions. 

Derived from English, the acronym ESG is connected to three important concepts, both in the context of the third sector and the entrepreneurial world: environmental, social and corporate governance. Coined in 2004, in the Global Compact publication, in partnership with the World Bank, called “Who Cares Wins”, the expression refers to the best positions of companies in these three factors, also being a relevant criterion for the financial and investment market. ESG criteria are also applied in the third sector context, guiding activity which is more aligned with global commitments and social investors' premises.
