Doing more good the circular way

Cork

Harvested every nine years, without any tree being felled during the process, cork gives rise to an endless array of products, from the traditional to the most innovative and unexpected. Cork oak forests are natural retainers of CO2, they prevent soil degradation, they regulate the hydrological cycle, they combat desertification and they generate high levels of biodiversity. Cork is a natural material which is both renewable and recyclable. By all means it's an extraordinary tree.

Respect for nature

100% natural, reusable and recyclable, cork is one of nature’s most extraordinary products. When harvesting cork bark, no trees are cut down, and the process is even beneficial, since a stripped cork oak absorbs on average five times more carbon dioxide during the natural process of regeneration than a regular cork oak.

Circular

We have always been circular

 

Amorim Cork Composites, the company that owns Go4Cork, has always been committed to ensuring the transition from a linear economy of “take, make and dispose” to a circular economy. The idea of a cycle at the heart of the circular economy is also clearly present in the solutions we offer: we want to continuously create better products, and with them improve the world around us. In the present, for the future.

Circular economy: join the movement

As well as using cork not utilized in the wine cork industry, we also use by-products from other sources, such as the footwear, automotive, and packaging industries.

Thus we contribute to the creation of a true circular economy, in which nothing is lost and everything is transformed into new products and solutions. Be part of a true "green" dynamo so we can make a difference together!
