OUR SUSTAINABILITY POLICY
Pluspetrol is committed to carrying out its activities while constantly improving its good practices, pursuing excellence in all of its processes in order to achieve its long-term growth and sustainability objectives. We ethically manage our business, which comprises the economic, social, and environmental aspects of our operations for decision-making, balancing short and long-term interests to create shared value for the Company and its stakeholders. Our commitment is supported by the following principles, which are developed in different management systems for both the corporation and the different business units.
A large portion of Pluspetrol’s activities are carried out in remote areas with high levels of biodiversity, in sensitive ecosystems, or in areas that are home to indigenous communities or rural populations who use natural resources for survival. This means we need to implement specific strategies in each situation, to apply technological solutions, and to improve our practices and tools for environmental and social management to ensure they enable us to prevent, minimize and mitigate potential impacts. In every operation, we continually monitor a series of indicators that allow us to assess environmental and social management, in order to establish improvement measures based on concrete information.
