Our mining and metallurgy business drives us to commit to being an ethical business. Making ethics, responsibility and sustainable development the core component of our operations is the most effective way to achieve our goal of sustainable performance.

Social and environmental responsibility: sights on 2023

A commitment only has meaning if it leads to concrete action. To ensure optimal effectiveness, we've developed a roadmap that sets specific goals to be achieved by all our teams by 2023.
