Certified SYSTECODE* EXCELLENCE, Bourrassé has taken its commitment to the highest level, above and beyond the requirements of the International Code of Cork Stopper Manufacturing Practices (ICCSMP).


Bourrassé is naturally ethical and constantly seeks to ramp up its commitments. The Bourrassé group has two sites included in the FSC certification scope – namely Socori as the Central Office located in Rio Meão, Portugal and Tosse France – APCER-COC-151187 – which allows it to supply 100% FSC and FSC Mix-Credit*** products. Through the certification, it supports responsible forestry management.

In 2024, the Tosse facilities of Bourrassé group have made a pledge to their CSR performance through ECOVADIS (facilitating sustainable management of partners at the supply and distribution end of the industry). 

Our professional gender equality index for 2024 is 91 points out of 100: See the full report.

* Systecode is a scheme introduced and supported by the European Cork Federation aimed at strictly ensuring enforcement of the Code, thereby guaranteeing the quality of the processes and products by certificate recipients. There are 3 levels: Basic, Premium and Excellence.
