We do today, thinking about tomorrow

Sustainability

The value of our work is also measured by respect for the environment and our contribution to improving the living conditions of the communities where we are present.Ā  Committed to the preservation of the environment and the development of communities, the company develops the following organized programs without areas:

We take care that the next generations also have

Environment

  • Air quality monitoring
  • Recovery of areas impacted by the implementation of the Corridor
  • Monitoring of the water of the rivers crossed by the Corridor
  • Treatment and monitoring of industrial and waste water
  • Monitoring of large marine fauna and marine prairies
  • Monitoring of mangroves, sediments and terrestrial fauna.

To ensure the quality of air, water, rivers crossed by the corridor, as well as the sea where our port is installed, nacala rigorously makes polymer application and coal cell beeperation.

The substance prevented coal particles from spreading through the air during the transport from Moatize to Nacala.

In the storage yard, coal is periodically sprinkled with jets of water with the same ojective.

We engage in capacity building projects as one way of empowering communities through skills development, distribution of farm input products, provision of safe water boreholes and distribution of beekeeping equipment.

Farm Input Distribution: We partnered with Agora and identified families to distribute farm inputs such as seeds, fertilizers andĀ  insecticides. We believe that this program plays a pivotal role in increasing agricultural productivity for farmers that have no access to these inputs.

Borehole Drilling: with over 80 boreholes drilled since the commencement of the program, the potable water holes also serve as a safety measure to reduce crossings on the railway line to search for water in the streams.

Beekeeping: We partnered with African Parks in order to do the beekeeping project. This is important in rural development activities since it provides products for household consumption and income from sale of honey and other bee products.

Health and Safety

Health and Safety

The success of our operations is also measured by the non-recording of accidents along the Nacala Corridor. To achieve the zero-accident target, Nacala Logistics does not support efforts to invest in infrastructure, people, campaigns and other resources to reduce accidents.
Unfortunately, with all this investment, behavioral change is still a our company's challenge. In communities crossed by the we still see situations of resistance to the use of safe paths, non-compliance with traffic regulations, undue presence of drunk persons in the rail line among other risky behaviors that may culminate in accidents.

Aware that any change takes its time to happen, the company remains firm and confident in the investment it has made. Example is that daily our social monitors, take distances in dialogue with people about the need to take safer behaviors. There are a total of 198 monitors working along the 672-kilometre rail line of the Nacala Corridor in Mozambique.The work of social monitors contributes significantly to the prevention of train accidents along the Nacala Corridor. From 2017 to 2021, when the Corridor began to count on the work of this group, Nacala Logistics recorded a 48% reduction in occurrences involving trains and people from the communities along the railroad.
