We are a family business, 100% Portuguese, with 45 years of history, which takes care, since its foundation, with environmental and social sustainability.

We want that our activity and processes be as sustainable as possible and to promote a fairer, healthier and greener present and future.

Environmental Sustainability

We believe that the preservation of the environment depends on the attention and action of each one in favor, not only, of a healthier and more sustainable future, but also of a present with a better quality of life, for all.

As Environmental Sustainability is one of our priorities, we seek to be actively attentive, in the search for solutions aimed at protecting and improving the environment.

Among our actions that promote environmental care, we highlight:

  • A battery of photovoltaic panels provides 1/3 of our energy requirements since 2013.
  • Thermal insulation.
  • Low energy lighting (LED).
  • Equipment upgrades leading to energy savings of 20 to 30%.
  • First to manufacture storage boxes using recycled plastic 20 years ago.
  • Use of recycled plastic with up to 80% reduction in CO2 emission.
  • Internal recycling of off-specification products.
  • Active participant of an industrial waste management system.
  • Waste sorting (waste oils, paper and plastic, toner) delivered to specialized companies.
  • Use of paper with FSC certification.
  • Member of Quercus Association
  • Member of Green Dot Society for management of package at consumer’s level

Social Sustainability

Since the beginning, we have developed and encouraged a proactive attitude in addressing human needs, not only internally, but also of the society around us.

In this sense:

  • We actively seek to provide better working conditions, namely in improving equipment, infrastructure, processes and other aspects that promote safety and health at work;
  • We encourage our employees to develop their social and professional development;
  • We develop actions that aim to minimize social needs and difficulties;
  • We cooperate with schools, seeking to respond positively to their training and other needs;
  • We have established partnerships with Private Social Solidarity Institutions (IPSS).

For life!
