“We are concerned about what is happening in the environment and for this, we not only seek for solutions within our communities, but also work with Dideco (Community Development Directorate), with the municipalities or regional services,” explains Ingeborg Monge, Head of Personnel Management at ME Elecmetal Rancagua Plant.

“The most important thing with the communities is the forum. For this, we have established an ongling dialogue that allows us to address possible challenges in a timely manner. In fact, very few complaints are raised,” she concludes.
