Amorim Cork Composites' ReVALUE Circular Economy Program aims to foster a more sustainable future, by recycling items previously considered to be waste into new products. By being part of ReVALUE, you are contributing to the reforestation of the cork oak forest. For each ton of material, we will plant 10 cork oak trees.
“For the Kyaia group, it is essential to guarantee a better planet for future generations. We place great importance on waste collection and, in this context, are grateful for the opportunity given to us by Amorim Cork Composites by collecting the surplus from our footwear production, which will be used in new products and thereby contribute to the sustainability of the Planet. The Kyaia group will always provide support for such initiatives, for the common good.”
It only takes six steps to reduce your company's environmental footprint and help build a better world, with less pollution.
Identify surplus waste in your production process.
The ReVALUE programme receives excess sheets, rolls, plates and blocks of any type – ranging from natural cork to cork with rubber.
Separate the materials you want to send to the ReVALUE programme.
Create a sample and send it to Amorim Cork Composites for evaluation.
The quantities should be defined by Amorim Cork Composites' team.
After the sample validation, separate the materials by type and prepare the shipment, in accordance with the conditions stipulated by Amorim Cork Composites.
The materials received will be re-incorporated into the production process.
In this way, we will jointly be able to complete the production cycle and contribute to a more sustainable, waste-free planet.
By reincorporating these raw materials into the production process, we encourage the development of new market solutions and products, without the need to use virgin raw materials.
The planet will be grateful.
For each ton of material received within the ReVALUE project, we will plant 10 cork oak trees.
During their lives, these cork oak trees will sequester many tons of CO2 – making a valuable contribution to combating climate change.
By joining the ReVALUE program, you are helping value the entire product as a raw material and thereby building a more sustainable planet. Join our commitment to sustainability:
