Open to partnerships

We constantly look for potential partners with whom we can talk and collaborate on the project and with the communities that surround it.

Portucel Moçambique's main institutional partners in this venture are

  • The Mozambican Government
    Represented by its central, provincial, district and community authorities. 
  • The International Finance Corporation (IFC)
    A World Bank institution, which has owned a 20% stake in the project since December 2014.

Other important partners include the Local Communities - which share with Portucel Moçambique the land and the project, and work with it to achieve their common goal of prosperity - and civil society organisations.

In addition, Portucel Moçambique is also eager to find potential partners to share ideas and work together for the good of the project and the communities who live around it.
