Sustainability approach

Our approach

Sustainability is at the heart of our purpose and underpins the delivery of our strategy. In delivering our purpose, we seek to create enduring social, environmental and economic value. Our approach to sustainability supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and we work with stakeholders to develop and implement actions that contribute to sustainable development. Our sustainability approach comprises five interconnected pillars which focus on areas that are material to our business and stakeholders.

Sustainability Policy

Our Sustainability Policy reaffirms our commitment to sustainable development and outlines our commitment to governance and transparency on sustainability matters.  

Our Sustainability Policy is guided by international standards and initiatives, including the ICMM Mining Principles, United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Ten Principles, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Our sustainability commitment and principles, as outlined in our Sustainability Policy, form an integral part of our strategy, internal standards and procedures. 

Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September 2015 that seek to address the world’s greatest challenges. The key to achieving the SDGs is working together with other stakeholders to develop and implement actions that contribute to the SDGs’ universal social, environmental and economic aspirations.
