We stand for sustainability
and respect for the environment
Respect a way of living; involve man in his environment; this can only be achieved with respect for the environment. At Lagar do Vale, we understand the importance of protecting our flora and fauna so as to benefit the olive grove. This is achieved by correctly planning the traditional tasks of the
olive grove, the use of fertilisers of a natural and organic origin, the care and favouring of the creation of groundcovers, which form part of the natural habitat of these species. Also, we make the most of our water resources without overusing aquifers or dripping watering resources. Sub-products and residues are processed and used through our management plan, such as olive seeds, which are re-used and valued as vegetable fuel for biomass boilers, thus ending the integral cycle and minimising environmental impact.
In the windmill, all our equipment uses low-energy consumption, eco-friendly technology. We heat wáter using stone, minimising the consumption of natural resources. Currently, we are focusing our efforts on the construction of a photovoltaic facility which supplies clean energy to our facilities in a way that we shall be self-sufficient through the consumption of energy, thus reducing our carbon footprint.
At Lagar do Vale, we use the natural resources required for the production process in a sustainable way, adopting a responsible attitude towards the protection of the environment, the prevention of pollution while minimising the negative environmental impact.
“Our philosophy is to promote these values
of environmental awareness to all areas of society”
