Umoe's History

Umoe Bioenergy SA (“Umoe”) is a company operating in the Brazilian sugar-energy sector and is part of a Norwegian Business Group, the Umoe Group.

The Umoe Group was founded in 1984 by the Norwegian Jens Ulltveit-Moe, which operates in the Renewable Energy, Services and Real Estate sectors. Currently, the Umoe Group's businesses are present in the following countries: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, China, the United States and Brazil.

And it is in Brazil that the Umoe Group explores the renewable energy sector through Umoe Bioenergy SA.


Umoe's culture

Umoe strongly believes in individual responsibility and, consequently, works with a lean, agile and responsive corporate profile, because Umoe considers that an aggressive organization is more likely to make mistakes.

Umoe does not tolerate poor performance resulting from decisions based on emotions (as opposed to facts).

Umoe seeks to share the profits with those who created them and seeks to reward performance well, and although Umoe is a privately held company, it believes that the discipline of a high quality board is essential for effective management.

Umoe will always act in an ethical, sustainable and socially responsible manner.
