Education: a key factor in our social commitment
As a company with a social commitment and a member of the United Nations Global Compact, Dominion strives to spearhead change so as to develop our society. Accordingly, as well as contributing to progress and quality of life through its business activities, it develops and engages in other activities of social interest in collaboration with non-profit organisations.
