Mining is a complex and challenging industry. The Company understands that its value proposition is dependent on the privilege to operate in the communities that we do. To ensure this privilege, achieve our operational and growth objectives, and realize our competitive advantage amongst our peers, we must be responsible citizens by striving to deliver positive impacts to all stakeholders within and outside our operations and the Company.
Four priorities drive our approach to responsible mining:
- Our People
- Health and Safety
- Environmental Stewardship
- Community Involvement
By operating responsibly and promoting initiatives in these areas, we ensure long term value for our diverse stakeholders: the employees, investors and community members who make our business possible. Their well-being, including the well-being of our shared environment, enables our growth to be sustainable.
Our approach to sustainable development is evolving as the Company grows and is intended to ensure that our programs can be catalysts for positive and lasting contributions; that they are viable for the long term, and that we can fulfill our commitments in both economically prosperous and challenging times that are often experienced in the natural resource industry.
