As a global mining company, we have a unique responsibility to ensure we are addressing the evolving needs and priorities of our business as well as those of key stakeholders – including shareholders, employees, contractors, business partners, communities, rightsholders, governments and others.

Our sustainability materiality assessment serves as a guide in deciding what to prioritize in our sustainability initiatives, along with what is relevant to disclose in our sustainability reporting.

We reviewed our materiality assessment on a regular basis and completed a full update in 2019.

A material issue with respect to sustainability initiatives is one that:

- has significant current or potential impact on the Company over the next three to five years; and
- is of significant concern to our key stakeholders.

Our 2019 materiality assessment with respect to sustainability initiatives identified the following topics that will be our focus during 2020/2021:

  • Environmental Closure
  • Tailings and Waste
  • Environmental Compliance
  • Employment and Jobs
  • Health and Safety
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Public Policy
  • Community Satisfaction
  • Business Sustainability
  • Personal Injuries
