Integrated Innovation

For us, innovation is the key to generating shared value with society and building a safer, more sustainable and collaborative future.

Our vision of future

Our production is automated, removing people from risky working conditions and increasing the agility and productivity of our operations. Artificial Intelligence supports all major decisions.

We use technology to redesign our ways of working, eliminating risk scenarios, in order to become a reference in security and risk management.

We have a complete vision of the value chain and are integrated with customers to create differentiated products and services.

The teams collaborate remotely, creating a more accessible environment, attracting a more diverse workforce.

Renewable energy enhances our business, leading to carbon neutrality and new mining and processing technologies to reduce the environmental footprint.

We co-innovate in order to contribute to the sustainable development of our businesses and communities, generating a positive impact for society.
