For Drummond Ltd. it is fundamental to establish close ties to the communities that form the area of influence of mining. Therefore, through its Community Relations and Environmental Departments implemented another distribution of trees in the Comcaja and Villa La Feria neighborhoods, located in the corregimiento of La Loma, Cesar.
“The aim that we have is marvelous: to plant trees throughout this area and create an impeccable green zone that helps us to cool this area off more. It is too hot here, but we have already seen, through the training they have given us, that [planting trees] helps to cool the environment,” said Alfonso Flores Daza, President of the Community Action Board of the Urbanización Comcaja.
Through this project 1,855 trees have already been distributed to various neighborhoods and educational institutions in the corregimiento of La Loma, in the municipality of El Paso, Cesar, and the members of these communities have been trained on topics related to environmental sensitization, tree planting, and the correct planting and maintenance of trees, among others.
