CODE OF ETHICS

 

ECTerra is aware of its social responsibility and the great challenge of a sustainable raw material supply. We see our task in promoting sustainable concepts and methods in the extraction of raw materials. The reduction in CO2 emissions in mining and the reduction in raw material consumption are urgently needed.

ECTerra analyzes and evaluates geological programs and projects according to the parameters “input, output, outcome and impact” with regard to their sustainability impact.

ECTerra advises companies on the basis of current scientific & industrial knowledge in order to enable the development of a socially fair and ecologically compatible economy with its specialist knowledge.

We pursue the goal of creating and promoting awareness of raw materials in the public, business and politics. We show the consequences of the global increase in raw material consumption for the environment and communicate aspects of sustainability of raw material management and technical concepts (e.g. recycling, green mining, CCS, geothermal energy, e-mobility, etc.).

ECTerra promotes the application of the highest environmental and social standards in mining worldwide and their further development, in particular under the aspects of CO2 minimization and environmental protection. We are also committed to the implementation of geoethical guidelines in industry, science and education as well as the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially goals 8 (decent work and economic growth), 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) , 12 (sustainable consumption and production) and 13 (climate protection measures).
