Social, scientific and cultural support



Social, scientific and cultural support

REN supports numerous civil society organisations and public entities, participating in various initiatives across a broad spectrum: social, cultural, education, the environment and sports.

For more information consult the Annual Report.

Training and Education

Noteworthy in terms of training and education is the partnership with the Portuguese Physics Society, within the scope of the MEDEA Project, which incentivises secondary school students to develop projects on the subject of very low frequency electromagnetic fields.

Targeting university students, we highlight REN's sponsorship of the Católica Top + and~to the Lisbon MBA programme, in addition to the annual REN Prize, an initiative implemented since 1995 aimed at promoting collaboration and interaction with universities by rewarding the best engineering work associated with the energy sector.

Society and culture

REN supports various firefighter associations and initiatives promoted by these, as well as numerous cultural and recreational activities carried out by parish councils and by cultural and sports associations.

Community outreach

Within the scope of its policy of engagement with local communities, where there are company infrastructure and facilities, REN seeks to act as a socially responsible entity, expressing concerns on environmental protection, historical and cultural heritage and also on the legitimate interests of the populations of the surrounding areas.

This is implemented through support to civil society initiatives, which depend to a great extent on this type of contribution. this is done both through support for and participation in preservation projects as one of the measures to minimise impacts on the environment and heritage and also through actions promoted by the company to disseminate environmental awareness.

Social solidarity

In its support for social causes and in the struggle against inequalities and the problems that most affect society, REN’s spirit of solidarity has been expressed through the establishment of partnerships with charities and also through the volunteer work of our employees in initiatives developed by the former.
