TECNOSULFUR Launches Covid-19 Prevention Campaign and its Contingency Plan

By December 4, 2020May 23rd, 2023No Comments

Tecnosulfur has been quickly adapting to the challenges posed by the pandemic.

Since March 20, we have been focusing on preserving the health of our staff and the health of our businesses and full compliance with high ESG standards, including, but not limited to, by:

(a) supporting environmental actions,

(b) engaging in inclusion and diversity campaigns,

(c) promoting donations for those who are most in need,

(d) tracing and mitigating risks and capturing opportunities for investment by shareholders, and

(e) strengthening our in-house procedures guided by ISO, IFRS, and IBGC.

We have restricted the access to our premises as much as possible, encouraging people to work in a home working scheme. At our premises, additional PPE was made available, such as individual masks and many disinfecting alcohol dispensers. Besides, our communication channels have been enhanced, especially our LinkedIn profile and, preventing fake news from getting in the way of our business and providing adequate psychological support to our people.

And we keep working. Although the steel market has sustained a 30% loss in sales, Tecnosulfur has not yet fired any of its employees on account of the pandemic. On the other hand, we have hired even more skilled people, especially to strengthen our innovation areas and ESG and develop our talents to be the next generation. This is a consistent part of our long-term growth plan.

Just like other companies and segments, in spite of all of our efforts, this virus has a random effect and some of us have been infected in the last few months. Fortunately, all of them are safe and sound now and, as part of our ongoing effort, we are launching this month of December the 4th review of our Contingency Plan, establishing clear actions based on a look to past and recent events, as well as future scenarios.

We’d like to invite you to follow us on LinkedIn and share your experience in this uncommon year. As human beings, we need each other to support and return to the “new normal” even better than before.
