Sustainability

In nature, nothing is wasted. The cork oak forest, the origin of the cork cycle, inspires us to grow sustainably, following the principles of the circular economy, in harmony with nature, and respecting the environment and people.

The cork oak forest is a unique ecosystem, whose balance depends on the interaction between nature and people. It is one of the 36 global Biodiversity hotspots, and is home to over 200 animal species and 135 plant species in every km2. This extraordinary forest regulates the soil’s hydrological cycle, acts as a fire barrier, prevents soil degradation, benefits productivity and creates employment, progress and wealth throughout the Western Mediterranean Basin. It also plays a vital role in the retention of greenhouse gases: for every ton of cork produced, the cork oak forest retains up to 73 tons of CO2.
