Vale advances in digital transformation for sustainable development

Have technology as a means and not as an end. With this goal, Vale created the Digital Transformation program. The idea is to evaluate the potential of digital tools, in use or available in the market, in generating sustainable results.

The initiative is based on the pillars of connectivity, performance culture and digital revolution. More stable, integrated and cost-effective operations are some of the expected practical results. In Ferrous Metals, for example, one of the focuses of the Digital Transformation program is to contribute to the integration of the business, improving the way of working within the corridors and between them, which in turn contributes to another iron ore project: the Integrated Operations Center.

The Digital Transformation program will also be released later this month in Base Metals, starting with nickel, at Vale’s Canadian operations.
