Manufacturing carbon neutral Sustainability Report

Collective has become carbon neutral in 2022.

TORONTO — Collective Mining Ltd., has published its 2022 Sustainability Report, which contains the company’s performance in social, environmental, health and safety and governance matters within its area of operations.

Collective has become carbon neutral in 2022 for the first time due to the purchase of carbon credits from the Delfines Cupica Redd+ project. Focused in the department of Chocó, the Delfines Cupica Redd+ initiative is led by ethnic communities of the Chocó region and plays a key role in the conservation of more than 103,000 hectares of tropical forests which benefits approximately 7,000 people.

Collective’s ESG Report highlights that over $180,000 of social investment in projects for the communities such as the construction of a water utilities facility benefitting approximately 900 people, the construction of rural roads and various agricultural initiatives consisting of training and the replacement of more than 200,000 coffee plants. These projects represented more than $400,000 in total investment when combined with our strategic partners.

To improve the conservation of water sources for the communal water utilities, 1,900 trees were planted in our area of operation which covers approximately five hectares of land.


“Our results in 2022 demonstrate Collective Mining’s strong commitment to sound ESG principles. Our operating model of aligning exploration activities hand-in-hand with a robust ESG program continues to pay dividends for our stakeholders as we advance our Guayabales and San Antonio projects,” said Omar Ossma, President and CEO of Collective Mining. “We are committed to continue operating with transparency, respect and responsibility towards our stakeholders. We would like to extend our special appreciation to our strategic allies for their commitment to implementing community-based programs including, but not limited to, the Committee of Coffee Growers in Caldas, the mayor’s offices of Supía, Marmato and Pácora and the Governor’s Office for the Department of Caldas. We commit to continuing to contribute to the construction of a responsible and prosperous future for the region.”
