Social Responsability

In an underdeveloped region, Vale do Jequitinhonha, CBL implementation – exclusively through private investments – contributed decisively to the improvement of social indicators at the surrounding areas of our operations, as evidenced by HDI – Human Development Index evolutions monitored by IBGE – Brazilian authority for economic statistics.

Employing 320 people directly and generating several hundreds of indirect jobs, CBL has educational policies for maximizing the presence of local citizens in our staff. In 2018 alone, we paid more than R$ 32 million in taxes and royalties.

Besides generating taxes (sales, income and social) and mining royalties that are reverted to the region, CBL sponsors directly and indirectly a number of social services and investments, fomenting community programs and building or renovating schools, hospitals and nursery.
