Ongoing Projects

Green Project

Environmental Sustainability

The environmental axis of VdA’s Corporate Social Responsibility Programme is promoted by Vasco Vieira de Almeida Foundation, through its Green Project, a programme of sustainable development and ecoefficiency, that aims to minimize the negative impact of the firm’s operations on the environment.

Through the assessment and reduction of its carbon footprint (notably through optimization of the consumption of resources – energy and materials) and the adoption of sustainable practices by all its people, the aim is to move on in the journey of promoting the so called “circular economy”, a model for the production of goods and services, through which waste is transformed by innovation in potential sub-products or other materials, promoting their reuse, recovery and/or recycling.

In the long-run, the Green Project’s final goal is to qualify the Foundation and VdA as carbon neutral entities.

Measures implemented within the Green Project adhere to the following strategy: Assess - Measure the carbon footprint; Reduce - Manage Consumption and Emissions; Raise awareness - Promote the adoption of good practices.
