4º Marketplace Lisboa - Here we can be in solidarity... 


The eight edition of Marketplace in Portugal, and the forth organized in Lisbon, was held in Estufa Fria last May.

The Marketplace, organized by FIX Social Engagement according to a model originally from the Netherlands, is a social market whose objective is to informally gather companies, local authorities and non-profit institutions that wish to exchange goods and services without any financial involvement, in what is an example of responsible, participatory and consequent corporate citizenship.

This event, which brought together about 100 representatives of companies and institutions of social nature, allowed reaching 123 matches (exchange of products and services). With the contribution of this latest edition, was exceeded the total cumulative value of 1.1 million Euros of social impact in the eight editions organized since the launch of the model.

Millennium bcp, which was present for the third time in Marketplace Lisboa, established 6 agreements - mainly for the donation of furniture and computer equipment - with third sector entities from different areas of activity and target of support.

In these three participations, the Bank had the opportunity to support 25 institutions of solidarity, a result that proves the effectiveness of the model, but also its capacity to generate social value and strengthen ties of closeness with the community and with the People.

Here We Can, Make the Difference.
