At Amorim, we have always assumed a firm commitment to developing resource efficient products and solutions, produced in a sustainable manner and based on a sustainable raw material – cork.
Aware of its responsibility as leader in the industrial and distribution cork business, the segment that guarantee’s the economic viability of the world’s cork forests, Amorim has published its first Sustainability Report in 2006. Its aim was to initiate, with all its stakeholders, a regular and structured communication practise focussed on the sustainable development policies and related corporate activities.
In 2018, Corticeira Amorim aligned the Company’s goals with the United Nations’ SDGs and laid the foundations for the “Sustainable by nature” programme, which determines the goals set until 2030.
Ten major goals have been set, that align the performance of the entire organisation focusing on ethics and integrity, the value chain, the cork oak forest, climate change, circular economy, green products, development, safety, health and well-being, community/society and innovation.
More than 150 years since its foundation, we continue to pursue the same core mission: to add value to cork, in a competitive, distinctive, and innovative way that is in perfect harmony with Nature.
This is our commitment, and we remain determined and resilient, proud of the excellent performance that we have achieved over recent years. But there is still a long way to go. As always, we count on the dedication of our People and the involvement of our stakeholders, to continue to build a better world.
