The community is an important stakeholder for us. ITM continues to actively involve local communities in the entire value chain of the company. We continue to absorb community expectations periodically through various approaches such as Community Consultative Forums, Materiality Surveys and other informal methods. Walking hand in hand between the company and society towards an empowered and sustainable society is our ultimate goal.
We are aware that human and company activities have impacted the environment and thus consequently influence the ecosystem and nature. Furthermore, ITM understands that biodiversity is granted by the nature and thus need to be conserved despite company’s operational activities. ITM has formulated and executed various initiatives to be able to positively contribute to the environment and protect the biodiversity.
