CMPC´s work is deeply connected to its surroundings; the communities, territories and ecosystems they are made of. By generating value for our stakeholders, we envision the way to build our own value and grow sustainably over time. We work directly with natural resources such as soils, water and forests, understanding that our operations have both positive and negative impacts. Accordingly, we strive to identify continuous science-based opportunities for improvement.
Toward this end, we have committed ourselves to concrete environmental and social goals for sustainable development, taking 2018 and 2019 as their respective baselines. These will guide all of our actions forward to 2025 and 2030.
We commit to a 50% reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions (direct and indirect) by 2030.
Diversity and Inclusion Goals
We will increase the proportion of women by 50% to reach 23.1% of total representation by 2025.
CMPC has high standards of governance oriented towards sustainable management, rooted in the top-level management of the company. It is based on a corporate culture of ethics and compliance with the Corporate Policies and Regulations. We carry out our operations and business transactions in accordance with the best international practices, strictly complying with the laws and regulations of each country where we are present and always respecting the people, their dignity and rights, as well as the environment.
In order to have direct supervision on the implementation of the sustainability strategy of the company, CMPC board of directors has established the Sustainability Committee. The purpose of this committee is monitoring the economic, social and environmental dimensions of the strategy, as well as verifying the correct fulfillment of the objectives and goals established in this matter. Furthermore, the committee can revise and recommend best practices which allow to strengthen the long-term commitment of CMPC with sustainable development.
