Herman Urrejola Ebner, Director of Social Management at Teck Chile, is a Forest Engineer with over 21 years of experience in the development of ESG management systems in direct work with indigenous communities across Chile. Throughout his career, he has played a key role in Teck's social management in Chile, as well as in providing support and leadership in social matters for projects and operations in Latin America.

During his almost 11 years at Teck, Herman has led actions focused on two relevant axes: Women and Indigenous Peoples. Among his achievements are the Originarias program, implemented by UN Women, which sought to empower indigenous women in mining and in the community in general. He also led the Elige Crecer program, a training and employability project for the Tarapacá region.

In addition, Herman has been responsible for the creation of a joint conservation area with the indigenous community of Ollague and has established long-term collaboration agreements with indigenous communities associated with the development of Teck's QB2 project.
