CEOs talk about projects that raise the bar for sustainability in mining companies
The virtual closing ceremony of EXPOSIBRAM 2020 was marked by the presentation of the one-year balance sheet of the mineral sector’s commitments to increase safety and sustainability in its operations. CEOs and other directors of companies in the sector and more directors of IBRAM – Mineração do Brasil spoke about the evolution of the fulfillment of the goals established in the “Letter of Commitment of IBRAM Before Society”, a document organized after collecting contributions from 200 technicians of the associated companies to IBRAM and publicly presented in September 2019.
The President-Director of IBRAM, Flávio Penido, underlined in his speech that the Letter of Commitment, which is a document with goals established for the Brazilian territory, is connected to a broader initiative, which is the TSM – Towards Sustainable Mining program, of international scope. IBRAM and associated mining companies have been committed to adopting the TSMBrasil, since 2019, said the director. “Both initiatives have many goals in common and it will be important for companies to signal to society everything they have done and what they intend to do positively for the sustainability and safety of their operations,” he said.
“We have reached the end of this EXPOSIBRAM 2020, broadcast 100% online from Belém (PA). And we find that after this rich program, we are a sector more open to society. We are proud to belong to this sector and, at the same time, humility to recognize that there will always be room for improvement and, for that, listening to people is increasingly important for us to evolve ”, said the President of the Board of Directors of IBRAM, Wilson Brumer.
In addition to presenting the commitments and some of the main goals structured by working groups that bring together dozens of mining companies, the directors of the mining companies gave examples of projects that their companies are leading and that contribute to the transition to a carbon neutral economy, as well as to raise the standard of sustainability of these companies.
