They propose as pillars: Social development, care for the environment and economic growth.
After 7 months since its formation, the Mining Commitment network, created to promote the sustainable development of the industry, has added more than 90 organizations from the national ecosystem, counting among its affiliates in Atacama such important names as Corproa, Minera Candelaria, Atacama Kozan, Association of Pirquineros de Tierra Amarilla and representatives of the Network of Mining Engineers of Chile; all united behind the collective responsibility of promoting mining to be more innovative, inclusive and relevant every day.
In line with the vocation of caring for people and future generations, Compromiso Minero has given itself the task of opening spaces so that all those who want to be part of it can develop in this industry, contributing from their perspectives and particular experiences to the improvement process proposed by the network. Thus, among the proposals raised by its members are such important demands for the regions as that a majority portion of the taxes paid by mining remain in the mining regions themselves or promote the hiring of women in all mining positions, to double its participation before 2030.
Another pillar for Compromiso Minero is dialogue with citizens. The intention is to know their needs and face the future challenges of the industry and the communities around it in a responsible, sustainable and sustainable manner over time. That is why around the slogan “A new Constitution that listens to Our North” the network has activated the so-called Regional Nuclei, where people linked to the industry add diverse voices and points of view to contribute from the territories involved to the discussion carried out carried out by the Constitutional Convention regarding the mining regulatory framework.
From Compromiso Minero they maintain that “it is necessary that our constituents can access information and know the value of mining, which has been a key pillar for the development of the country and an ally to carry out the changes that our society needs.”
Daniel Llorente, president of the Corporation for the Development of the Atacama Region, (CORPROA), said that “this industry is developed mainly in the northern part of the country, for this reason the sector has a strong conviction that there is a debt from the State with the mining regions. In this sense, as a Mining Commitment, we promote that a greater percentage of the taxes paid by mining remain in the mining regions. This would allow communities close to mining to be directly benefited by this activity, also allowing greater decentralization of the country and visibility of the benefits that this sector brings to all regions”.
For her part, regarding the commitment to promote the hiring of women and strengthen the presence of local workers in the industry, Cecilia Ponce, a graduate of Civil Engineering in Mines, member of the Network of Mining Engineers of Chile and ambassador of Mining Commitment in Atacama, says she is “proud to be from Chañaral. Working in mining has changed my life and has given me the opportunity to support my family, so I want more women to have the chance to join this industry.”
In short, Mining Commitment promotes the sustainable development of mining in Atacama and the rest of Chile, based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): social development, care for the environment and economic growth. “Our commitment is with the more than 700,000 people who work in mining and in economic activities linked to this sector. In addition, we will continue working so that Chile continues to occupy a privileged position as a world supplier of minerals and metals that face climate change”, they declare.
