Many communities depend upon natural resource businesses for income, employment, infrastructure, services and facilities, health and education, and ultimately, survival. However, the environmental impact of these businesses requires careful and responsible management.

As a result, mining companies need to foster strong partnerships and implement effective, responsible strategies to address critical social, infrastructure and environmental needs within Brazil and the local communities surrounding the mining enterprise.  Every mining organisation must do its utmost to benefit the communities wherein they exist, be effective caretakers of the environment and, through these practices make their businesses more sustainable.
