Chapter 1

We are Antofagasta Minerals

Developing Mining for a Better Future

Our strategy is built around our purpose, along with four target groups and five pillars. Each element has defined long-term objectives with short and medium-term goals. In addition, our five pillars are underpinned by six key values that are shared by our people and permeate our organisation.

Our vision is to be an international mining company, focused on copper and its by-products, known for its operating efficiency, creation of sustainable value, high profitability and as a preferred partner in the global mining industry.

Our Strategic Framework and Pillars


We recognise that climate change is one of the greatest challenges faced by humanity. Our vision of a better future reflects the quest for a more sustainable planet, with copper playing a central role in the energy transition, economic progress and improved livelihoods.


Our vision of a better future is one that is developed together with our local communities, and aims for a society that recognises the economic and social value generated by mining.


To tackle the challenges we face in our daily operations and growth, we need a robust organisation that consistently meets these challenges and is grounded in clear and unshakeable values and principles.

Our vision of a better future therefore encompasses our ethical organisational behaviour and our continuous pursuit of a sustainable culture of trust, inclusivity, collaboration, agility and willingness, to embrace change and continuous learning.


Our success relies on having the best people at the heart of everything we do. Our vision of a better future would be incomplete without the shared values of our workforce, a diverse and inclusive group of individuals open to learning and to enjoying their personal and professional growth, who strive for excellence in their results.

Sustainability Policy

Safety and Sustainability is one of the five strategic pillars that underpin our purpose. We take a holistic approach to our sustainability management, continually engaging with our stakeholders to analyse, define and manage our priorities across the short, medium and long term, and always aligned with our strategy.

Safe and healthy environment

A safe and healthy environment is a priority for our work, as is well-being. We recognise the importance of diversity and equal opportunities, so we continually strive to create proper environments that promote integration and both professional and personal development.

Economic performance

We are constantly looking for sustainable ways to improve our operational efficiency in order to create value for our stakeholders. We operate responsibly and with long-term vision in order to maximise the economic value of our assets and contribute to social development.

Environmental management

We work to prevent, control and mitigate our potential environmental impacts. We seek always to make efficient use of natural resources. We implement integrated environmental management systems into our business, establishing objectives, goals and indicators.

Social development

We seek to contribute to the generation of economic, social and human capital in the environments in which we operate. We lead processes of effective, participatory and transparent dialogue with the different actors in the territory, acknowledging challenges and opportunities to address them together.

Transparency and corporate governance

We believe in the importance of developing effective, responsible and transparent institutions. Our guidelines and internal regulations establish our commitment to run a responsible business. We operate with integrity based on transparency and respect for human rights and the law. We openly communicate our performance and implement systems that allow us to supervise our procedures internally.

Dear stakeholders,

I am pleased to present our 2023 Sustainability Report, underscoring our steadfast commitment to sustainable practices. Acknowledging the contributions of our directors, project teams, and stakeholders, who are integral to our objectives, we recognise the pivotal role of environmental, social, and governance issues in driving sustainable growth, benefiting our organisation and society.

The relevance of these dimensions in our business is reflected in our governance and particularly in our Sustainability and Stakeholder Management Committee. This body supervises our performance's community and environmental aspects based on our sustainability and human rights policies. This Committee supports the role of the Board and gives recommendations to ensure that sustainability matters are included in the Board's ongoing decision-making.

Antofagasta Minerals maintains regular dialogue with our stakeholders, and the Committee ensures their views are carefully considered in the Board's deliberations.

Boosting Cybersecurity

Digital technology plays a critical role in increasing the productivity of our processes. We are constantly updating our systems and enhancing our action plans to identify, minimise and control any potential risk that might affect our regular networks and programmes. Due to its strategic relevance and visibility, cybersecurity has become a key issue in protecting our digital infrastructure and ensuring our sustainable progress.

Respecting Human Rights

At Antofagasta, we recognise the dignity and value of the human being as an essential element of what we do. Acknowledging and respecting human rights implies action within a framework of equality, fairness and non-discrimination. We believe in the importance of particularly, right to access healthcare, education and an adequate standard of living.

Respect for Human Rights

Respect for Indigenous Peoples

Our Due Diligence Process

In 2023, the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) updated its Human Rights Due Diligence Guidance, an important resource that helps member mining companies to better integrate human rights into existing risk management approaches. The guide stresses the fact that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and that all businesses, regardless of where they operate, have a responsibility to respect human rights.

Our main input for development of our human rights policy hinges on the first Due Diligence exercise implemented in 2018 at all our companies. We are currently working on our second Due Diligence process, to assess the current status of potential risks identified in our first process and establish new action plans accordingly.

This is considered a key process in understanding and anticipating potential industry impacts on our communities, and in designing preventive action plans to mitigate any potential negative consequences of our activities in terms of indigenous peoples and community relations, labour rights, work-life balance, water stewardship, dust release, and other topics.

Environment and climate change

Sustainable Production

We strive to produce in a sustainable way based on a long-term vision. Our priority is to prevent, minimise and mitigate adverse impact on the environment in which we operate. Through regular reports and reviews, we periodically evaluate our performance and conduct improvement action as required. Our four operations meet all the criteria of The Copper Mark and the ICMM Performance Expectations standards for responsible mining.

Environmental Management Model

Implementing Our Circular Economy Strategy

In 2023, we launched our Circular Economy Strategy, approved at the end of 2022. Its three pillars are linked with four priorities: regulations and trends; engaging with stakeholders; innovation; and circular economy culture.

Our Approach to Climate Change

Climate change is one of our top priorities. We recognise the contribution of copper to increasing electrical demand relating to the worldwide energy transition and the need to adapt our operations to reduce our GHG emissions.

Our Progress towards Decarbonisation

At Antofagasta we have the ambition to reduce our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the short and medium term, and to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, or sooner if technology allows. Our comprehensive approach to decarbonisation involves our mining site operational teams, our corporate teams and our suppliers.

Scope 1 & Scope 2 2035 goal


emissions reduction with 2020 as baseline

Scope 3 2030 goal


emissions reduction with a projection baseline using 2022

Energy Management and Water Stewardship

Energy Consumption and Management

Energy is a strategic resource that must be managed in order to ensure a safe, efficient and sustainable supply for our operations, in accordance with our Climate Change Strategy. Energy represents approximately 18.9% of the total of operational costs of our mining operations. Of this percentage, about 10.4% corresponds to electricity and 8.5% to fuels, mainly diesel.

In accordance with our Energy Policy framework, implemented in 2022, we have incorporated the role of Energy Management Representative at each mining site. They supervise the achievement of decarbonisation and energy goals through energy performance plans and GHG reduction. The role consists of leading and ensuring the implementation and improvement of the Energy Management System according to Chilean Law No. 21,305 on Energy Efficiency.

Water Stewardship

In 2023, in acknowledgement of the strategic value of water for our company and our own sustainability, we created the Water Resources Management area to improve technical advice and our role in planning. We also assigned a water lead expert at each mining site to improve water management and to increase water efficiency.

Leading Seawater Use

Antofagasta Minerals has long been a pioneer of the use of seawater in the Chilean mining industry. We are moving away from dependence on continental water sources and increasing seawater use. In 2023, we achieved two milestones: completion of the Los Pelambres desalination plant as the first of its type in central Chile, and operations at Centinela only use 100%1 seawater following Antucoya's lead.

Our 2023 achievement


of our Group's water withdrawals was seawater.

Our goal


of the water used by our operations should be seawater and recirculated once our desalination plant at Los Pelambres reaches its full capacity of 800 l/s.

Innovation as a Driver of Sustainability

Cuprochlor-T Technology

In 2023, we launched a testing programme for our self-patented Cuprochlor-T technology, used in the processing of low-grade ore at Zaldívar. The process allows leaching of chalcopyrite and has yielded recovery rates greater than 70% after 220 days of leaching. We began to apply the necessary heating technology conditions, in order to evaluate feasibility and to sell the project to other mining companies from 2024 onwards.

Our Roadmap Operation Vision

2023 Focus

  • New ways of operating
  • Evolution of operations towards Integrated Operations
  • Management (GIO) with the use of data for decision-making
  • Robotisation of SAG mining mill maintenance (Los Pelambres)
  • New ways of mining
  • Dust reduction and control
  • New mining districts (reduction in material movement costs)
  • Tailings and water management
  • Cuprochlor T
  • Decarbonisation

Centinela Second Concentrator project

Considered essential for Antofagasta's production growth, the Second Concentrator project in the Antofagasta region aims to increase capacity for mineral treatment and production of copper concentrate, and to extend its lifecycle to the year 2056.

Praised as a ground-breaking project in terms of innovation and sustainability, all of its operations will use seawater. In addition, the Centinela Second Concentrator project will use electric power from renewable sources exclusively, and it will continue to use thickened tailings technology to ensure more efficient use of water. Haul trucks and perforators will be autonomous. On top of that, the project will prioritise electromobility, energy efficiency, circular economy and air quality monitoring.

With this project, one of the main contributions of Antofagasta hinges on highlighting the value of copper for the energy transition and a low emission economy, on the skills of Antofagasta's employees to launch projects of significant size, and on a proper framework that guarantees its feasibility and long-term development.

In this way, Centinela will transform itself into one of the world's 15 largest copper producers and one of Chile's largest gold producers.

Biodiversity Protection

Biodiversity protection is part of our long-term sustainability approach and policy. In 2023, our new, updated Biodiversity Standard started its implementation. In accordance with our Biodiversity Standard, and aligned with the ICMM's position statement on Mining and Protected Areas, we seek to protect wildlife around our mining sites.
