ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL & GOVERNANCE POLICY
We strongly believe in the positive potential of responsible mining for host countries and local communities and are committed to ensuring high standards of environmental and social performance.
Responsible mining practices can make a significant contribution to the sustainable development of host societies. However, mining outcomes can be problematic if not undertaken within a sound governance framework or to high standards of professionalism.
We hold our employees to high ethical standards through our Code of Conduct. We are committed to behaving with integrity and to be exacting in our expectations of the sustainability performance of the entities in which we invest.
A strong emphasis on environmental, social and governance issues reflects both the expectations of our investor and corporate partners and of the societies in which we work. Such emphasis is not discretionary. It is fundamental to our vision of what is required for successful mining investments. We believe for our investments that it reduces risk, underpins long-term value creation and is a source of competitive advantage.
