Biodiversity is key for the balance of ecosystems and the services they provide, such as water regulation, CO2 sequestration, nutrient cycling or protection against erosion. The more diverse an ecosystem, the more stable and resilient to adverse events.
Our target by 2025 is to identify and implement nature-based solutions aimed at restoring ecosystems and enhancing biodiversity to ensure a net positive impact of our operations.
Learn about some of our biodiversity protection projects and initiatives:
Protection of the nesting habitat and feeding grounds of Montagu's harrier.
Reduction of the high risk of fire in hyperdense pine forest, planting native species and creating a mosaic landscape.
Ecological restoration of degraded wetlands to improve their ecological status, promote the conservation of associated species and habitats, and enhance CO2 capture.
Tahay violet conservation Project, a vulnerable species that blooms for a single day.
Installation of 10 platforms to promote the reproduction and breeding of the Barn Owl (Tyto Alba).
Mexico y Chile
Species protection programs such as the Dryophites frog in Mexico or the four-eyed toad in Chile.
Compensate residual impacts on natural ecosystems, foster the development of medium to large trees, guarantee the permanence of ecosystems with preservation and restoration actions.
We adopt a mitigation hierarchy to avoid, minimize, restore & offset.
We select adequate locations for our projects, seeking to minimize the environmental impact. We are committed to zero deforestation and to avoid operational activities in close proximity to World Heritage areas and IUCN Category I-IV protected areas.
Through exhaustive environmental impact assessments, we define protection measures to avoid and minimize any environmental harm and establish monitoring programs to ensure its implementation.
Restoration and offsetting actions ensure that, beyond causing no net loss, we achieve a net positive impact on biodiversity.
