The program was recently renewed, making it possible not just for organizations based in Portugal, but also in Brazil and in the African countries where we operate, to apply for it. Assistência Médica Internacional (AMI), Helpo and Terra dos Sonhos are currently the three beneficiaries of this TAP social responsibility initiative, and will remain in the Program until the end of 2024.
We are always looking to support good causes and encourage our employees to take part in them. Whether on a regular basis or as a one-off, and regardless of our field of activity, our goal is always to make a difference.
In 2022, partnering with the associations "Comunidade Vida e Paz" and "Renovar a Mouraria", we carried out 145 hours of volunteer work, with the participation of 69 volunteers, throughout 20 sessions, which included preparing dinners for the homeless population of the city of Lisbon and the offering of TAP store gifts to children and young people from migrant families.
Campaigns and Donations
We believe it is by strengthening our values that our impact on and contribution to the development of society can be maximised, in complete alignment with our business.
In 2022, we donated approximately 166,000 discontinued items from our operations to support the neediest communities and the social organizations that help them every day.
Solidarity campaigns also reflect the Company's commitment to social causes. Throughout 2022, we supported the campaigns “Abraçamos a Ucrânia”, "IRS Solidário", carried out TAP Donate Miles special campaigns in support of the Ukrainian people and in celebration of the International Children's Day and the World Youth Day, a campaign dedicated to the World Food Day, the TAP Store Christmas campaign and the 4th edition of Portugal Giving Tuesday.
In total, we reached 135 social organizations. In 2023, TAP will remain committed to contribute to a solidarity path towards sustainability.
