Our company follows the guidelines outlined in its Corporate Social Strategy, aligned with the main standards and global requirements for environmental, social and governance management (ESG). After 15 months of community relations, we have begun work to draw up a baseline diagnosis as a precursor to formulating global ESG strategies and protocols. Based on this result, background work will be carried out to produce reports and sustainability strategies for the future.
Ganfeng works closely with the community and the State as part of its projects in Argentina, seeking to create consensus with the aim of setting up governance based tacitly on a co-management approach. Informative meetings are held periodically on topics related to its projects or activities in the region involved.
At these instances, the community—represented by the authorities designated by its members and other members of indigenous groups—may either express its approval or voice discrepancies, suggestions and concerns. We work together with the authorities as-and-when issues arise to immediately provide answers, bringing in experts who are specialized in each area and have no relation with the interests of the parties. The role of the experts is to present the relevant technical information as required.
The State is represented by national, provincial and municipal authorities, as appropriate to the issue or working group, through the Executive Power or officials designated for that purpose.
