Energy Generation, Electricians School and IT School 

One of our objectives is to promote, in the territories where we operate, an agenda for generating opportunities through job training, especially in the innovation, technology and creative economy sectors.

In our market qualification program, we are paying special attention to increasing the number of women in technical careers in the Group and to developing a methodology for gauging perceptions among our employees, which will support decision-making in a more inclusive culture. 

Regional valorization

Culture and the Creative Economy

One of the most important fronts for regional development is the Energisa Cultural Program. With the program, we structure actions to strengthen local strengths by supporting projects that increase the creative economy through training and job and income generation actions. The Zona da Mata Audiovisual Pole and continued support for festivals held in cities in the interior of the country are examples of our sponsorship policy's commitment to economic sectors linked to creative industries.

Partnerships for Sustainable Development

Stimulating entrepreneurship in small community-based businesses through qualification and incentive actions aimed at the tourism sector is the objective of the Energy to Grow project carried out in the state of Tocantins.

With initiatives to support sustainable handicrafts, the golden grass and rapadura harvest festivals, as well as the development of local products and services aimed at improving access to the tourism market, the project works to stimulate productive inclusion in the Jalapão territory.

Another project is the Aliança Reflorestar para a Amazônia ( Reforest Alliance for the Amazon), which is part of a consortium of institutions brought together to protect and restore the Amazon rainforest. The project, carried out in the Nova Esperança indigenous community of the Yawanawá people, proposes the restoration of the local landscape using the technique of agroforestry systems (SAFs). This restoration model, sustained over generations, allows for the maintenance of biodiversity, the community's food security, the preservation of the genetic heritage of Amazonian flora and the articulation of the peoples of the forest.
