Social Commitment

We believe in a business based on sustainability and positive transformations in the regions where we operate.

Our social initiatives are aligned with our value proposition, building two-way relationships, capable of providing mutual benefits for all our stakeholders.

Omega targets social investment on projects that contribute to social- economic development of local economies and implementation of public policies, building effective and positive relationships with our neighboring communities. We invest in social projects with structural and transformational potential, which foster and encourage the local economy as well as education initiatives.

Investments and Social projects are based on social indicators (HDI, schooling, per capta income,etc.)  from official research institutes and agencies such as the IBGE and the Atlas of Human Development in Brazil, as well as the engagement of Public Authorities and communities.

Created to seek a meaningful and sustainable transformation through specific solutions to local problems, “Window to the World” encompasses different projects aligned with Omega´s values, current norms and public policies.

Divided into the stages of diagnostic, alignment with the community and deployment, Window to the World programs are created regarding the needs of each community. Initiatives range from one-off support to recurring programs.

Partnership with the Police

Fighting overfishing

There are periods of the year when the fishery is more abundant, attracting fishing vessels from other parts of the Delta coast (from the CEARÁ to MARANHÃO), engaging in shrimp trawling that becomes environmentally predatory and damages artesanal fishing and income of local families.
