This can be seen in our relationship with our surroundings and stakeholders, where Drummond has become a leading figure in social responsibility projects that encourage the development of the people and the areas within the company’s influence, which include 13 municipalities divided between the departments of Cesar and Magdalena, in an area whose population is close to 350,000. In turn, Drummond’s more than five thousand employees and their families are and will always be our priority. This is why our Human Resources management policies foster a sense of belonging among our employees, their families and the community. We also promote, as our policy states, the concept that “Safety is our way of life and it guides everything we do, protecting those around us, our surroundings, our resources and ourselves.” This is also reflected in the standards that we require of the nearly four thousand contractors that work side by side with us. In that sense, this edition of Revista Drummond describes our Good Neighbor philosophy and the framework of a sustainable social responsibility strategy, with pillars such as education and training, healthcare and the environment. On the other hand, an international organization such as Drummond also invests in developing good relationships with key stakeholders in the United States, Europe and other places where our customers are located. An example of this is our recent trip to the Netherlands (Holland), Germany and Switzerland, along with representatives from the Colombian government, other mining companies, the mining unions, and community representatives. José Miguel Linares President On this visit, the Colombian government showed leadership in promoting the industry as a critical element in the country’s development, under a model of mining that is performed responsibly and properly. It is now evident to the European buyers of our coal that our work meets the highest technical, social and environmental standards, and that we generate many benefits regarding employment, training, improvement of education and healthcare.
