Management Approach

To manage the environmental aspects of its activity, CORTICEIRA AMORIM formalised an Environmental Policy, where it bears responsibility for:

  • Acting proactively identifying, evaluating and taking suitable preventive and corrective measures to minimise the specific environmental impact of its activity, using, whenever feasible, the best available technology;
  • Promoting awareness and environmental training initiatives;
  • Acting proactively in the discussion of policies and the proposal of measures to protect the cork oak, the preservation of the cork oak forest, the promotion of the cork sector, the certification of 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).
