Sustainability

Mundicenter Group has actively implemented measures aimed at environmental protection and taken steps to achieve sustainable development.

PORTUGUESE BLOOD AND TRANSPLANTS INSTITUTE

The 16th Annual Blood Collection Campaign of the Portuguese Blood and Transplants Institute and of Mundicenter took place in July 2017 at the Amoreiras Shopping Centre, Arena Shopping, Strada Outlet, Oeiras Parque, Spacio Shopping and Braga Parque. Mundicenter and the IPST appealed again for blood donations with the help of Nilton, the ambassador chosen for this year’s edition.

Since 2002, more than 22.500 units of blood have been collected at the Mundicenter shopping centres, helping about 68.000 patients.

ZERO WASTE MOVEMENT

The Zero Waste Movement, which Mundicenter endorsed, was created with the purpose of ending food waste, helping  people  with needs and the environment by reducing organic waste.

This movement was organised by the Dariacordar Association under the high patronage of the Presidency of the Portuguese Republic, and calls for people to recover this type of waste, to help address the needs of some Portuguese families.
