Since our establishment we incorporate
environmental and social elements in the company’s management.
Feeling the need to integrate and reinforce these elements,
we started in 2004 a formal Sustainability program

In the same year, we became members of BCSD Portugal,
Portuguese subsidiary of Business Council for Sustainable Development,
making public our commitment with Sustainability.

Our sustainability program is currently
a decisive factor for orientation and balance for all
the policies and strategies of Efacec.
Assumes an irreproachable ethical corporate behavior,
which is described through our Codes of Conduct,
Policies, Values and Corporate Principles.

We have adopted and adapted the model 3Ps (profits, planet, people)
to our needs, so we express clearly and unequivocally,
our bets on a better future for humanity.
We designated this internal model as 2 X 3Ps,
and this has become one of the reference
structures for setting our goals and targets.

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.

With regard to the environment,
we have integrated several call value chains of the Green Economy.
Currently, all new products are developed
in order to provide greater energy
and carbonic efficiency during their use.
On the other hand, we can provide
the rehabilitation of most of our products
(and equivalent products from competition),
activity which allows the reuse a significant part of the original materials used.
The environmental impacts of our activities are
constantly monitored and subject to continuous improvement

In the human area, we respect all human rights as defined by various international organizations
and we provide excellent working conditions and safety for our employees.

We maintain assessment processes and systematic development of skills.

We contribute to healthy lifestyles by supporting our associations.

 With regard to relations with our communities and society in general,
we intend to intervene and contribute to its development.
We support their causes in various ways and encourage our employees
to participate voluntarily in their activities.

We also want to establish and maintain strong partnerships with scientific, educational, cultural and social institutions,
and we support a few dozen of the most representative entities of the associative movement in Portugal.
