Renovation of LIPOR Green Spaces

We renovate our spaces inspired by nature.

Since 2002 we have implemented good practices for sustainable gardening in the Horta da Formiga (Home Composting Center). As this is an area for experimenting and learning, we show that it's possible to maintain areas sustainably (without using chemicals and other practices which harm the environment) and, at the same time, reduce costs and increase biodiversity.

As nature inspires us, we have followed the example of these good practices and have developed a program to enhance our spaces, applying this methodology to all green areas.
This renovation has reduced the production of green waste and has enabled the implementation of some measures for adapting to climate change. The water saved for irrigation is also substantial.
In order to mitigate climate changes, we are creating gardens that preserve heat in the winter and provide shade in the summer, protect buildings and people from strong winds and reduce their speed, also protecting from rain and hail.

Additionally, there are other advantages: These gardens lower air temperature and reduce heat intensity resulting from the greenhouse effect, also serving as carbon deposits. By reducing soil waterproofing, we reduce the impact that these changes can have on the natural and urban environment, preparing ourselves for future challenges.

Through developing of the Renovation of LIPOR Spaces project, we aim to:
  • Manage, change and create sustainable green spaces that are dynamic and productive;
  • Think of all green spaces, not only in a decorative aspect, but also according to their functions, meaning they can be put to better use;
  • Improve the involvement of Employees and Visitors;
  • Contribute towards mitigating climate changes and their direct effects on Employees and on our infrastructure;
  • Be a benchmark for maintaining other sustainable green spaces, by applying good gardening practices, nationally and internationally.
