A YEAR OF CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
In a world that is globalized at every level, the actions of everyone who interacts with it or inhabits it have consequences that affect all living beings. Being conscious of this is fundamental to make a unified effort for the sake of a healthier planet. At AYMA we are. We know that our sector must be especially careful with the environment. For this reason, carrying out sustainable activity was our flagship project throughout 2018, because making mining a responsible activity is also pushing it beyond its limits.
During this time we have worked hard to offer an updated version of AYMA, of its consulting. A renovation which means a commitment with values of safety, respect for the environment, collaboration with communities, etc. Ultimately, for mining of today. 21st-century mining. Sustainable.
This journey lays the foundation of a company strategy for corporate social responsibility as a process, to achieve the highest level of commitment to sustainability.
In what activities can we see this attitude?
From March to December, we carried out a dozen activities related to corporate social responsibility, in addition to implementing messages to raise awareness through our communication strategy via social networks. We will discuss five of them, although you can find more information in the CSR page on the Ayma Mining Solutions website.
In March we started this journey by joining the United Nations Global Compact, where our signature signifies the need to establish a business strategy based on sustainable values and ESG criteria (environmental, social and governance) for 2019. In April AYMA was the sponsoring company of the XIV International Congress on Energy and Natural Resources that took place in Seville. In May AYMA obtained the LOPD data protection Compliance Certificate for its commitment to adapting to new regulations. Let’s skip to September, a month in which we hired an external consultancy to draft a Declaration of Sustainability adapted to AYMA’s business activity and sector. The last action we want to highlight took place in October, when we signed the abovementioned Declaration of Sustainability.
With our first steps taken, our commitment continues into 2019, a year in which we hope this identity will be reinforced and will position us as a top mining consultancy that is more intelligent, efficient and responsible. Doing the job and getting optimal results doesn’t conflict with sustainability.
The planet is our home. If our work is unsustainable, it can’t in any way be optimal.
