At Austral, we have developed social responsibility programs in every locality where we have production plants: Coishco, Chancay, Pisco, and Ilo. Our Social Responsibility Plan has been elaborated from a baseline, including a socioeconomic diagnosis and a mapping of stakeholders with a focus on economic, environmental and social aspects and the identification of organizations and social groups existing at every zone. Our courses of action include Education, Employment, Nutrition, Health, Environment, and Social Development.
By virtue of the Infrastructure Tax Act, we implemented the infrastructure of the stadium of Coishco in Ancash, where we built the east and west grandstands including a roof to protect spectators. We installed a sprinkler system, a cistern tank, and 8 concrete posts with the respective electrical system for adequate lighting of the entire stadium. We invested S/. 1,972,161.16 in this project.
