Since our creation, we have incorporated environmental and social elements into the company’s management. Feeling the need to integrate and reinforce these elements, in 2004 we started a formal Sustainability program.
In the same year, we became members of BCSD Portugal, a Portuguese subsidiary of the Business Council for Sustainable Development, making public our commitment to Sustainability.
In 2019, we became sponsors and partners in the foundation of the Center for Responsible Business and Leadership of CATÓLICA-LISBON, a research center that seeks to develop knowledge and projects in the area of sustainability and responsible business.
Our Sustainability program is currently a decisive factor in guiding and balancing all Efacec policies and strategies. It demands impeccable ethical business behavior, which is described through our Codes of Conduct, Policies, Values and corporate Principles.
We adopted and adapted the 3Ps model (profit, planet, people) to our needs, in order to express, clearly and unequivocally, our investment on a better future for humanity. We designated this internal model as 2 X 3Ps, and it became one of the reference structures for setting our objectives.
In the economic area, we recognize the need for new approaches to the markets and customer loyalty, as a way to ensure the indispensable revenues of our activities. We have introduced risk management practices and systems to which our projects are exposed, and the habit of systematically and rigorously manage all our resources.
We systematically improve our processes, using recognized methodologies such as Lean and Kaizen, and maintaining programs to encourage, attract, manage and recognize the creativity of our employees.
