Management Approach

Management Approach

CORTICEIRA AMORIM promotes sustainability along the entire value chain, with the aim of minimising environmental impacts.

Environmental Policy

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, preserve the cork oak forest, promote the cork sector, certify the forest management systems and remunerate 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).
