To ensure that our resources are perfectly sustainable, we use cork from forests certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). The entire production cycle is based on the 3 Rs: Recycle, Re-use, Reduce.
Cork is a wonderful raw material from which “nothing is lost, everything is transformed”. All derived products, such as cork waste, are subjected to rigorous quality control and transformed into technical corks inside the factory.
Driven by its environmental protection policy, the Piedade Group has also brought an ecological closure to the market, with material coming from organically farmed forests. This cork is manufactured in Piedade plants according to a certified process. Having received the most highly-sought certifications ISO 9001 :2008, ISO 22000 and Systecode (SYSTECODE PREMIUM), this process is living proof of our quality policy.
