FSC® – C018998

At Amorim, we promote responsible forest management, assuring forest’s natural heritage for future generations to enjoy its benefits.

 

Amorim was the 1st closure company to offer a FSC Chain of Custody.

 

The FSC “Chain-of-Custody” certification requires means of tracking FSC forest products through the process to the point of sale and a production pathway that meets stringent environmental guidelines.

 

FSC certification adds additional guarantees that the farms adopt — and keep – best practices on both social and environmental aspects. Summarizing, it certifies that cork forests have achieved — and maintain — a positive triple-bottom line:

Social and Environmental benefits.

 

The FSC seal of approval enjoys great stakeholder recognition, especially at the NGO level such as WWF and it’s an easier way to communicate with its core market. FSC certified corks portray the FSC logo.
