From the main sustainability strategy priorities until 2025, PT Vale has established sustainability strategies for 2022, as we did in 2021. These strategies focus on our commitments to reduce climate change; energy and water efficiency; conserving forests; and increasing social contribution; as a transitional step to Net Zero Emission mining.

PT Vale implements a sustainability strategy through the four Pillars Goals with a focus on the five Goals for the future.

Pillar Goals

Sustainability Strategy

Serving the communities by contributing to all From the beginning, PT Vale has served the communities. Turning natural resources into self-sufficientareas, contributing to the development of the country. Currently PT Vale serves the communities by providing what they need and want, including mining materials and other resources to improve their quality of life. While preserving the Earth. Creating prosperity for all.

Doing it together

Doing together means listening but our listening will only be valuable if it is comprehensive. Everyone must listen: society, governments, customers, and especially the people who make PT Vale, everywhere PT Vale is. After all, we are the communities. Communities are PT Vale.

Doing together means creating a collective capacity to think, design and realize possible futures for everyone. For mining. For the planet. Creating spaces dialogues that evolve the industry as a whole.

Doing together means acting with responsibility, transparency and consistency. Walking the Talk.

Using Vale’s mobility to do something extraordinary.

All mining companies are required to preserve nature, protect the community, and those involved in the company’s operations.

Transforming the future by taking care of the present.

We are generating development for communities, well-being for society and permanent environmental preservation mechanisms. Leaving the world a better place than when Vale arrived. Putting the benefits intrinsic to mining at the service of society as a whole.

But also: using the knowledge and technical, human, financial and catalytic capacity that PT Vale has developed over the years to rebuild a virtuous cycle of prosperity that points to an inclusive and comprehensive future, in which everyone benefits and PT Vale’s horizons expand to meet the needs of a world in constant transformation.

Recognizing the role of natural resources, but also humanity’s infinite vocation to create and evolve.

Focus for the Future


This is one of the key aspects to increase and regain public trust. Ensuring safety of life and operations is Vale’s priority.


A strong management model is essential to increase the level of operational excellence. Having standards is our way of becoming a unified Vale wherever we operate, as well as contributing to building a more reliable Company.


Our Company is built by human hands – they are the key elements to achieving the future we want.


Investing in innovation, leaving the comfort zone, is the main factor that makes our Company more competitive and profitable.


Contributing to improving environmental conditions, focusing on three dimensions: environmental, social, and governance. This is our new mindset: investing with purpose./p>
