This is a comprehensive manual (written in Brazilian Portuguese) that addresses Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance Criteria - ESG, providing a holistic approach to operations in the mining sector. Focusing on environmental sustainability, social responsibility and good governance practices, this manual offers a solid framework to ensure that companies in the sector achieve their objectives in an ethical, socially responsible and environmentally conscious way.
Currently in its first edition, the manual enters the IFRN library and is accessible to all academia in the state of Rio Grande do Norte and is being implemented at the Regional Engineering and Agronomy Council (CREA) in Brazil due to Fernanda's ability to create a work of great value for national industry
The product should be built in a short space of time, to coincide with the moment of Fernanda's master's degree defense.
