As a natural consequence of organizational maturity, we have developed a Social Support Policy to make transparent our relationship with people and be more effective in our collaboration to a society transformation.

The policy is based on five pillars:


A fundamental and indispensable tool to achieve a deep and sustainable transformation in society.


Instrument to boost human and social development, at the same time that it is characterized as an important educational role.


The patriotic sense broadens and develops the family spirit, clarifies civic behavior and the promotion of the common good, facilitating social interaction and the promotion of justice in the construction of a more egalitarian and ethical society.


It is important to recognize that accessibility and social inclusion are necessary conditions for the achievement of the right to freedom.


The Águias do Bem program was created in 2006 and is a fundamental tool to encourage volunteering for employees, to promote citizens who develop voluntary activities and positively transform the environment in which they act.

Supporting events, actions, campaigns, projects and voluntary activities in the airline, the initiative was one of the highlights in the assessment made by the magazines Você S/A and FIA, which recognized GOL as one of the 150 best companies to work for.

Joining these five pillars, we have the GOL Institute, created in 2010 with the objective of investing in vocational education for low-income young people to attract and qualify professionals to the commercial aviation sector.

The GOL Institute also has a Social Projects Evaluation Committee (CAPS), which evaluates projects based on the company's Social Support Policy, and also with the Águias do Bem team, created to inspire real stories of social transformation.
