Sustainability


Defending the interests of our clients with honesty, competence and assertiveness is our mission.

We understand that the current interests of the civil society meet the desire for a fair and balanced environment. As a result, we are adopting measures that may have a greater positive impact on our operations and we have created an ESG Committee to monitor these actions.

The problem of climate change is real and in TRIGUEIRO FONTES there is only one direction: we want to be a low carbon society. Therefore, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, with the establishment of short- and medium-term actions.

In 2021 we carried out our first Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory, along the lines of the GHG Protocol. From there, we chart a route to the path of no return to the low carbon economy.

We are aware that, in this way, we will fulfill our objectives and mission with the excellence and commitment that guide our practice.
