PORTUGALIACORK wants to make sure eco-friendly practices are an integral part of our production process. By 2030 we aim to have a zero-waste policy implemented and fully operational.
Our production processes are being continually streamlined to meet this goal. Combined with the 2025 plan to achieve self-generated electrical power, this would allow us to reach carbon-positive status in a near future.
Post production leftovers reduction
It’s crucial we invest in new, innovative uses. Cork can be repurposed as packaging, isolating material or substrate.
There are fields where cork can and should replace synthetic, toxic materials. Our R&D department is continuously looking for this opportunities.
We are happy to announce that before 2024 PORTUGALIACORK will implement solar power as an integral part of our energy policy.
Single use plastic reduction
In our day-to-day operations we are striving to reduce plastic use by implementing environment-friendly alternatives.
