Environmental Policy

The Group's Environmental Policy is built around three main areas: Biodiversity, Climate Change and Waste Management, carried out through the following principles of action:

  • binding legitimate demand for growth to protection of the environment;
  • including environmental performance criteria when developing and carrying out all activities and in management decision-making processes;
  • promoting and encouraging environmental management practices and eco-efficiency throughout the supply chain;
  • promoting and encouraging eco-innovation by developing and supporting environmental projects and services that have differentiating features.

In 2013, we reviewed the Jerónimo Martins Group's Environmental Policy, reflecting the evolution of its concerns and strategies and focusing on minimising environmental impacts in the supply chains.

All the initiatives carried out in order to pursue the strategic objectives contained within this Policy are monitored and assess on a regular basis and their results gauged and communicated.
