Oroco believes that our success at Santo Tomás begins within the local area
and its people. Oroco’s Corporate Social Responsibility Mandate creates
positive working relationships with Santo Tomás’ neighbouring community
and serves a realistic and meaningful social purpose. We understand that
maintaining a solid social license is essential to Santo Tomás’ long term
operational prosperity. Thus, improving the community’s quality of life with
mutual respect and open communication is fundamental to our objectives.
