Our environmental management system was designed based on the interactive PDCA method (from the acronym Plan, Do, Check, Act) and relies on several programs and tools: well-defined and unfolded objectives and targets, risk management and applicable requirements, dam management, internal and external audits, flash of indicators, and, recently, the environmental front of Nexa Way and the SICLOPE platform to manage actions. Nine Nexa units have an Active Environmental Management Plan.

We transformed skills and reskilling programs to support business strategy in the years ahead, highlighting digital skill sets and providing lifelong learning experiences for individuals and communities.

We have our Learning Management System (LMS), called Conexa, a learning platform that has allowed us to reduce the complexity of our training operation. Through this platform, we offer training in different formats, such as games, films, interaction, TED, content in partnerships with national and international universities.

A continuous and voluntary participation program was developed with various learning strategies: interactive lives, poadcasts, videos and renowned guest speakers who promoted discussions about the future of the job market and the impact on our business.

In addition to complying with regulations, we are concerned with developing a mentality of mutual care and knowledge of the real risks and mitigations within the context of our operations. To provide this learning experience, we use several methodologies for normative training: based on the 6Ds, we use online, face-to-face, hands-on training, Lego Serius Play methodology, VR and VA. In addition to normative training, there are also communication, participation and consultation programs, including:

  • Nexa Safety Day: with the motto Zero Harm, the event promotes a culture in the sense of not generating damages, injuries, losses and impacts on the lives of employees.
  • Sipat & Sipatmin: a Semana Interna de Prevenção de Acidentes de Trabalho promoveu diversas atividades, webinars e eventos voltados à conscientização de colaboradores próprios e prestadores de serviços sobre a prevenção de acidentes e doenças ocupacionais, estendendo o foco de atenção às famílias
  • ORW (Observation of Risks at Work): this safe behavior program seeks to identify and control the risks of activities in the present, so that it is possible to reduce undesirable consequences in the future. The ORT tool is used to assess safe behaviors during the execution of activities, improving the practice of safe behavior.

Decarbonization Plan

Para seguir na estratégia de neutralização de carbono, elaboramos um plano de descarbonização com a projeção de emissões e projetos de redução até 2030. Contamos com o apoio de uma consultoria que realizou uma análise das emissões atuais, desenhou cenários de descarbonização, auxiliou na definição de metas e na avaliação econômica de alternativas de descarbonização. Verificou-se que o maior foco de redução são as emissões de escopo 1, referentees aos combustíveis de origens fósseis, que representaram 73% do escopo 1 em 2020. Já para o escopo 3, que passou a contar com avaliação de cinco categorias a partir de 2020, a melhor oportunidade foi estabelecer uma meta para os fornecedores da logística. Até o momento, foram mapeadas 11 oportunidades de projetos de descarbonização, dentre elas, a compra de energia renovável comprovada no Peru.

Among the main advances of the plan in the period is the development of a structured program to support a process of learning and transformation of culture and behavior in Health and Safety. Main initiative of the Master Plan, as it is connected to all other goals, this transformation is based mainly on the adoption of the Global – Mining Industry Risk Management (G-MIRM).

G-MIRM aims to promote significant and lasting changes related to decision making within the company and improvement of risk management. In 2021, we completed the formatting and organization of teaching material for workshops, in addition to providing training on the Security Risk Management Process (PGRS) for senior management professionals.

(*) Of the 28 cases considered valid, 13 were related to harassment and/or abuse of power and 15 to persecution, disrespect and discrimination. Corrective measures were taken in all cases, such as: dismissals, verbal warnings, suspensions and/or transfers.

Nota-se entre 2020 e 2021, um aumento no número de casos de discriminação reportados. Tal aumento deve-se ao retorno das atividades presenciais, com o fim das restrições decorrentes da pandemia. No ano de 2020, a  força de trabalho administrativa exerceu suas atividades em regime de homeoffice, o que culminou com o declínio no número de casos reportados de assédio. Já em 2021, com a retomada das atividades nos escritórios da companhia, retornou-se também o reporte de casos de assédio.

We transformed skills and reskilling programs to support business strategy in the years ahead, highlighting digital skill sets and providing lifelong learning experiences for individuals and communities.

We have our Learning Management System (LMS), called Conexa, a learning platform that has allowed us to reduce the complexity of our training operation. Through this platform, we offer training in different formats, such as games, films, interaction, TED, content in partnerships with national and international universities.

A continuous and voluntary participation program was developed with various learning strategies: interactive lives, poadcasts, videos and renowned guest speakers who promoted discussions about the future of the job market and the impact on our business.

Through actions with the communities where we operate - in an increasingly close, transparent and constructive relationship - we seek to co-create a positive and structured legacy, enabling affirmative transformations for local development, as well as ensuring that the rights of these communities are respected. To achieve this goal, in 2020 we created a General Management of Social Management, within the Sustainability Department. The change required the area to undergo an internal restructuring, defining priorities, scope, roles and responsibilities of the teams in Brazil and Peru. Continuing this process, 2021 was the year of consolidation of the teams. In 2021, year in which the new coronavirus pandemic continued to bring challenges to governments and organizations around the world, we continue feeling the impacts brought by Covid-19. Whenever possible, the company's social management projects, especially those for education, health, income generation and social support, were adapted to the pandemic scenario, in a reality in which we were forced to live with the disease for a prolonged period.

Nexa is committed to mobilizing its supply chain towards environmental, social and governance issues. To this end, it shares good ESG practices through the Supplier Assessment Program (IAF). The Program was recently revised, and among the changes implemented were the revision of the evaluation form and indicators, alteration of the weights and minimum score of all the dimensions evaluated, besides the inclusion of the supplier self-assessment stage, which can give them a bonus according to their level of maturity in relation to ESG themes.
