Amorim Towards Sustainable Development

Amorim is recognized as a global leader in sustainable business practices. Founded in 1870 by the Amorim family, the company has grown to become the largest producer of natural cork wine cork closures in the world.

The emergence of a new paradigm – the viability of the activities carried out from a standpoint that simultaneously incorporates the economic, social and environmental aspects of these activities – has determined the growing importance of the contribution of every actor, whether a company or a consumer, to building a better world.

In this area, Amorim, in addition to benefiting from a gift of Nature – transforming a natural raw material, extracted cyclically from the trees without harming them, promoting the economic and social sustainability of areas at risk of desertification, making available high value added products that maintain the unique and intrinsic characteristics of cork, in an integrated transformation process that practically does not produce waste – has regulated its activity by adopting and strengthening sustainable development practices.

In 2007, the company became the first cork supplier in the world to receive FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification from the Rainforest Alliance for its natural cork closures. These prestigious certifications are your guarantee that corks grown and manufactured under this accreditation meet the highest standards of sustainable, socially responsible forestry practices. Amorim and its subsidiaries are an integral part of a conservationist effort to guarantee the survival of hundreds of thousands of cork trees throughout the Mediterranean Basin, a natural and renewable resource that plays a key role in CO2 retention, in preserving biodiversity and in combating desertification.
