Quality, Environment and Safety
Environment, quality and occupational health and safety represent one of the main pillars of the Group’s management. Labour practices are in line with legislation in Portugal and all countries where Visabeira operates. The Group also complies with the fundamental principles of the International Labour Organization (ILO). At Visabeira, the focus goes far beyond the products and services offered to encompass the well-being of workers, who enjoy good working conditions in a safe and dignified environment, in a professional growth atmosphere.
In environmental terms, companies are committed to ecologically sustainable production, distribution and energy consumption measures, several of which have been awarded certification by the ISO14001 international standard, with a view to implementing, maintaining and improving an environmental management system, ensuring compliance with International policy.
In line with these strategic guidelines, in late 2012 Visabeira Group became an active member of the United Nations Global Compact, committed to supporting the Ten Principles of the Global Compact, related to Human Rights, Labour Rights, Environment Protection and Fighting Corruption in all its forms.
