Collaborating directly with the development of society in the economic, social and environmental spheres is one of the main goals of the Aço Cearense Group. This is part of the philosophy of the company, which has over 40 years of experience, always based on attention to people and society.
Proof of this commitment is the Instituto Aço Cearense, which has been developing strong work in the social area for 11 years and contributes to the strengthening of the communities where the Group operates. The Institute supports important causes such as health, education, culture and sport and believes that social work is a joint effort for a growing society, developing people through the promotion of citizenship, rehabilitation and integration.

Since its foundation, more than R $ 14 million have been invested in 174 institutions, totaling more than 81 thousand people benefited in the three states.
The Institute’s actions go beyond the financial contribution to entities that serve people in situations of social vulnerability.
