Cerrejón Foundations System

For greater effectiveness and coverage of social engagement activities for the community of La Guajira, the Company has created a complete foundations system through which it seeks to promote and support projects aimed at strengthening and at sustainable development with our own resources and those of other allies (national and international) applicable to the ambitious regional development projects. Currently, the economy of La Guajira depends in large part upon coal exports. The aim of the Company is to contribute to generating alternative economic means and projects to allow the community of La Guajira to take advantage of the resources generated by its mining wealth to prepare for the day when these resources start to disappear.
