Águas do Vimeiro will participate, for the first time, in the largest sustainability event held in Portugal, Greenfest, which will be held from 24 to 26 March at Expotorres, in Torres Vedras, and which this year has been co-organized by the Torres Vedras Town Hall.
With a special focus on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the decisive role of citizens in their implementation, this edition of Greenfest will include numerous activities and actions that will involve the active contribution of companies, schools, associations, institutions and of course, all citizens.
Aware of the fact that there are still countless people in the world with denied or impeded access to water, especially drinking water, the constant efforts of Empresa Águas do Vimeiro (EAV) to ensure sustainable production standards, both internally, with employees and suppliers, and among the entire community, promoting sustainable consumption, is more and more notorious. These are critical motifs that make this action central to the brand.
EAV, whose core activity is to guarantee social responsibility and sustainability based on three fundamental parameters – social, economic and environmental – seeks, on a daily basis, to correspond and contribute to the achievement of the goals outlined by the UN, namely through the management of environmental impact and the management of both natural resources and human resources. Proof of this are the measures implemented and practiced by EAV of which we highlight: the quality policy and food safety of the company; waste management and recycling; Top technological equipment in order to minimize waste; weight and size reduction of packaging; production of ecological packaging; integration of employees with disabilities; minimization of noise in the execution of functions; permanent training actions and obtainment of several certifications from the Ponto Verde Certificate to the ISO 9001: 2008 (2013) certifications; ISO 22000: 2008 (2013) and FSSC 22000 (2016) awarded by APCER.
