Sustainability is strategic at Empresas CMPC. This approach and way of performing is based on three fundamental pillars: commitment and contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda; material issues, related to the positive and negative impact of our operations and throughout our entire value chain; and the risks to which we are exposed, our neighboring communities and areas of direct and indirect influence.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. In this direction - publicly - we have committed to four specific sustainable development goals, which will guide all our actions until 2030, taken for each of them in 2018 as a baseline:


50% greenhouse gas emissions (direct and indirect) as of 2030.


We will decrease industrial water use per ton of product by 25% by the year 2025, including all our mills distributed in 8 countries of Latin America.

12.4 - 12.5

We will be a zero-waste at final disposal company - sanitary landfills - by the year 2025, through the reduction in the generation of waste, its valorisation as a byproduct, and the strengthening of circular models.

13.1 - 13.3 & 15.1

We will add 100 thousand hectares of conservation, restoration and/or protection by the year 2030, to the more than 325 thousand hectares that the company already conserves, restores and protects in Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
