Sustainability has always been a priority at Poleva

Poleva was founded in 1989, because of a family’s desire to engage in another activity. In 2007, it changed its name and decided to invest in more innovative products and processes that are more complex, giving rise to the company, as we know it today.

The company views investment in sustainability as a natural course of action. The growing appearance of sustainable products on the market and customer demand for this type of product has led Poleva to be at the forefront in the manufacture of more sustainable products. Based on the ideals of sustainability that the company believes in and advocates, the next step was environmental certification. Currently undergoing a certification process, with CTCP support, Poleva has adopted more environmentally friendly measures and processes even before moving on to certification.

The company views investment in sustainability as a natural course of action.

“The company’s goal in this field, has always been to work as a certified company and comply with certification standards and rules, even before going ahead with the certification”

“Environmental certification is a strategic tool that makes people outside the company confident that Poleva meets all the necessary requirements with regard to sustainability and environmental issues” says José Dias.
