Because we are much more than copper, we lead a business of excellence with passion in order to build a better society.
We operate one of the world’s largest copper deposits with an approach based on risk management and safety in order to develop a world-class mining operation.
We strive constantly to maintain constructive relations of permanent collaboration with our employees, providing opportunities for meeting and communication and fostering dialogue and mutual respect.
Sustainability is the Company’s central pillar and the framework which guides the way it does business and applies at all levels of the organisation, including people, projects, operations, installations and products
Collahuasi’s social investment focuses on areas such as education, local development, the promotion of tourism, conservation of heritage and the environment and the health of people where it can make a sustained contribution over time.
Collahuasi has channelled an important part of its social investment in recent years through the Educational Foundation it created in 2009.
The Pozo Almonte Solar photovoltaic plant (25 MW) supplies up to 13% of Collahuasi’s current electricity consumption during daylight hours.
85% of social investment devoted to education, local development and job creation.
455,320 tonnes of copper produced in 2015; 7.9% of Chile’s total output.
28 educational establishments in the Tarapacá Region are supported by the Collahuasi Educational Foundation.
In 2015, we continued to be efficient in the use of water resources, with a 79.4% recycling rate at the concentrator plant.
We contributed the equivalent of 17% of the Tarapacá Region’s GDP and 0.7% of Chile’s GDP in 2015.
Through the creation of direct and indirect jobs, we had a positive impact on over 23,000 people around the country in 2015.
We are the only mining company in Chile to assure its carbon footprint.
El lugar fue propuesto por la comunidad escolar y será replicado en otros 4 establecimientos de la comuna.
Se trata de una iniciativa que por séptimo año desarrolla Collahuasi a través de su Fundación Educacional.
Pequeñas figuras de no más de 5 centímetros de diámetro y elaboradas en plastilina forman parte del “Mini Mundo” de Joaquín Alberico Pinela, exposición que el artista presenta en sala de arte Pica Collahuasi durante marzo y abril.
Durante una semana los estudiantes permanecieron en faena cordillera para conocer más del trabajo y poder en práctica conocimientos adquiridos en el aula.
