For more than 40 years, at Cerrejón we have carried out mining in an environmentally friendly and responsible way while respecting our neighbouring communities.
Every year, we invest in environmental programs to protect the tropical dry forest, regional fauna and flora, and various rivers and creeks, as well as prevent and mitigate impacts on air and water quality from our operations.
