Corporate Responsibility

We believe reflection and awareness of the social, environmental and cultural impact that each one of our projects should have, is a part of our duties, and we look for a balance between business initiatives and sustainable development.

Community

Part of this process is to conduct an assessment of the surrounding area, which means listening to the community and establishing touch points with local associations and then carefully evaluating and gauging the social and economic impact of a project in a specific project area. The idea is to mitigate the negative elements but also to add value to the areas in which we operate by making them safer, more accommodating and contemporary as well as developing the areas economically, which also translates into more jobs and a better quality of life.

Direct contact with local associations allows us to understand local challenges and together develop a number of measures which, in the context of our business area, enables us to contribute by reducing existing problems and negative impacts.

People

As maintaining the original architecture and as many of the traditional elements in the reconstruction of the development is key, continuing this type of work is central to what we do, so we actively seek to preserve and value Portugal’s best traditions and always favor national craftsmanship.

Taking into account this business sector, in each development, we work with 20 companies which translates into 70 people involved in just one project.

We value all of the components that make up sustainable management to respect the environment without compromising the future of generations to come.

SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS

We use natural resources intelligently, ensuring a better life quality.

We are aware of the environmental impact that construction brings, and we strive to make sure that everyone involved takes the necessary corrective or mitigating actions.

We seek to create sustainable construction which uses better and more durable materials and reduce water and electric power consumption.
