Since 2014, we annually commemorate every December 5th as World Soil Day, a date proposed by the United Nations (UN) to encourage joint international actions that promote sustainable experiences to recover our soil.
This date, which generally promotes a different theme each year, as "Let's keep the soil alive, let's protect the biodiversity of the soil" in 2020, or"Let's stop soil erosion, let's save our future"during 2019, has a goal in 2021 to "Stop the salinization of soils, increase their productivity", slogan the UN seeks to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining a healthy ecosystem, addressing the challenges in soil management, fighting against its salinization, and encouraging all societies to commit to improving the health of this resource.
At Hidronor we are committed to this cause, contributing to environmental sustainability with our integrated hazardous waste management services. Regarding the improvement of soils in Chile, we have the capacity to remediate and clean contaminated industrial soils by the dispersion, spillage or the transfer of dangerous substances (including the mining industry), which accumulate in the earth's crust and are the cause of various diseases in humans, as well as the cause of negative effects on the environment.
We invite you to review the details on how we combat climate change by recovering contaminated soils in Chile, view here.
Let's conserve our soils!
