Management Approach

CORTICEIRA AMORIM formalises ethical conduct with Environmental Policy

The policies adopted by CORTICEIRA AMORIM reflect a set of voluntary commitments by the company in the area of ethics and economic, environmental and social responsibility. They embody, as a whole, the set of voluntary responsibilities assumed by the various companies under the scope of a management model that sets out responsible competitiveness.

The formalisation of CORTICEIRA AMORIM's Environmental Policy is one of the instruments that materialises its ethical conduct.  In this document, the Company takes responsibility for the management of the environmental aspects associated with the value chain of its business activity, namely:

  • Act proactively identifying, evaluating and taking the suitable preventive measures to minimise the specific environmental impact of each activity, using, whenever feasible, the best available technology;
  • Promote awareness and environmental education initiatives;
  • Act proactively in the discussion of policies and the proposal of measures to protect the cork oak, preserve the cork oak forest, the promotion of the cork sector, certification of the forest management systems and the remuneration of environmental services in the cork oak forest.

To achieve the commitments undertaken in the Environmental Policy, CORTICEIRA AMORIM's various Business Units (BU) have adopted certification in different management systems (see table).
