Sharing the benefits of responsible mining and building capacity to ensure our communities are better off when we leave, than when we arrived

Our Sustainability Policy

At every stage of the mine life cycle, our activities can have a long-lasting impact on our communities and the environment. Our duty, as guests in the countries where we operate, is to align ourselves with the best international practices in order to avoid, reduce, mitigate and compensate our impacts. Our objective is to create long-term sustainable benefits such that the communities and other stakeholders we impact are better off after we have left than before we arrived.
