Social Performance Team

Within the scope of the publication of the SA8000:2014 Standard revision, we have worked to respond better to the new principles of this regulation.

One of the main differences in this new version is the requirement to create a Social Performance Team alongside the Employee Representative, something that was not included in the previous version. This Team shall consist of an equal number of employee representatives and management representatives, and shall monitor the progress and performance of the Social Responsibility system at LIPOR.

Employee Representatives

Emanuel Maia (Employee Representative);
Nuno Pereira (Trade union Representative);
Rui Barbosa (Trade Union Representative);
