How can we help?
Our experience in matters interacting with today's Environmental Social Governance (ESG) was within the mining sector beginning in 1998. Mining of manganese, silver and other metals. At the time we
integrated best quality practices and environmental responsibility. This was necessary for a mining corporation to enter into the NYSE. Later starting in 2010 we did similarly for the construction of
renewable energy plants and the energy sector. Today we infuse other risks and business aspects that relate to renewable energy.

activities while sustaining free market practices. In setting forward an ESG Program, consideration is given as follows:
- Integrity in Ethics,
- Gap Analysis, expectations,
- Alignment of practices and methods,
- Policies and Initiatives,
- Board Oversight,
- Metrics through Targets and Goals, and
- Internal Controls as part of monitoring.
