Green Heart of Cork @Jerónimo Martins

Supporting the conservation of the world’s largest continuous patch of cork oak woodlands.

Cork oak trees have an average lifespan of approximately200 years and can be harvested 15 times.

Located in the Tejo and Sado river basins, the world’s largest continuous patch of cork oak woodlands spans over half a million hectares. Aiming at promoting its conservation, WWF started the Green Heart of Cork (GHoC) project, that compensates good sustainable farming and forestry practices. Fully committed with protecting the environment, Jerónimo Martins has been supporting this cause since 2013.
