As opposed to previous years, in which the process of planning and reviewing the business plan took place between May and August, with the discussion of strategic aspects within each area, in 2020, several possible scenarios for the post-pandemic were simulated, by means of an ongoing dialogue with the Board of Directors.
The next review of the strategic mandate is scheduled for 2021, when relevant aspects for the business will be discussed, seeking to test the strategy resilience and, eventually, adjust routes and tactical plans. Our mandate is reviewed every three years, through a process called Strategic Dialogue, coordinated by the Strategic Planning area. By means of individual and structured interviews with the company’s directors and board members, we identified positive aspects, opportunities for improvement and potential adjustments. This process includes an analysis of the macro trends that affect the company and the industry, of new technologies, and of the socioeconomic and political environment of the countries where we operate. We also reassessed our skills, our ability to implement the strategy and the evolution we have achieved in these areas since the last assessment.
Our Nexa Way of implementing this strategy – in a highly collaborative environment and through core competencies – defines and guides us to continue to grow competitively. Furthermore, this allows us to take the world of mining to the world of people, with quality products, produced in such a way as to cause the least environmental impact and leaving a relevant legacy for society.
Global Compact – Since 2017, we have been a signatory of this United Nations Initiative, which aims to mobilize the business community around the world to adopt ten principles that represent fundamental values of human rights, labor relations, the environment and the fight against corruption.
Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) GRI 302-1 – Since 2019, we have participated in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), responding about water security. Reflecting the good water management that we carry out in all of our operations, we were included in the “B-” category. We highlight the participation of Nexa in the climate category for the first time, in which it obtained the “C” rating. This was the first time that the company conducted, still as a pilot project, the emissions inventory following the guidelines of the GHG Protocol. CDP is an international non-profit organization that analyzes and recognizes business initiatives to minimize and manage the environmental impacts of its activities. The initiative operates a global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts.
