Value chain

Responsible production and consumption

Corticeira Amorim gives preference, whenever possible, to suppliers which supply raw materials while upholding good practices in terms of sustainability and social and environmental concerns, both with regard to the materials’ origin and exploration processes. In addition, the company seeks to cooperate with suppliers in accordance with its own values of ethics and conduct, thereby reinforcing Corticeira Amorim's responsible behaviour throughout the value chain.

Corticeira Amorim has a vertical business model that integrates all stages of production, from the purchase of raw materials to the sale of a very varied portfolio of cork products.

Corticeira Amorim intends to gain a detailed understanding of suppliers’ behaviour and practices, preferably selecting those that offer the best negotiation conditions and share the Company’s principles and commitments, as specified in its Code of Business Ethics and Professional Conduct

Corticeira Amorim is committed to:

  • Interact with suppliers of goods and services in an ethical and legal manner, selecting only suppliers whose employment practices respect human dignity, uphold the law and do not undermine the Organisation's reputation.
  • Maintain clear, impartial and pre-determined supplier selection criteria – on a technical, economic and ethical basis;
  • Promote suppliers' compliance with safety standards and practices and current labour legislation,
  • Monitor the ethical conduct of suppliers and take action in cases whenever it is incompatible with the principles recommended in the Code of Business Ethics and Professional Conduct
