Sustainable Strategy

Braskem Idesa is a company committed to social responsibility, as well as to health, safety, and the environment. The Company believes that interaction and good relationship with the communities in its environment are fundamental; for that reason, it developed a set of interaction initiatives with the communities based on a Management System designed under the best international practices. One of these initiatives to strengthen the relationship with the community is the Public Participation Program, which has two essential actions: Open Houses and Community Meetings.

Open Houses seek to provide up-to-date information on the progress of the project, as well as listen to and resolve the doubts of different community representatives. During the events, visitors have the opportunity to receive official project information via ten modules, where experts from Braskem Idesa explain the actions implemented, in addition to listening to comments and contributions, always reinforcing the commitment to maintain a transparent relationship with the local population.

From 2011 to 2015, eight Open Houses events have been held and, in total, more than 1,915 people have participated in the initiative.

In addition, Braskem Idesa has prioritized employment opportunities for communities close to the project, with 90% of the workforce coming from the Democracia y Libertad, Pollo de Oro, Nahualapa and Lázaro Cardenas communities.
