Goldcorp uses a number of internal controls and monitoring systems as part of our process for managing and reporting information. These internal systems are important to the overall integrity and credibility of this report.
In late 2011 Goldcorp implemented dedicated sustainability data collection software which was used for the collection of 2011 sustainability data. This web-based software is linked to the GRI, and provides an audit trail to increase the rigour and transparency of data collection. The system is designed for one person to enter and submit the data, which is then verified by a different individual prior to being consolidated at the Corporate level. The software also enables consistency checks to be set such that if the data being entered varies by a set amount from the previous year’s data an explanation must be attached before the data can be submitted.

We apply the principles of inclusivity, materiality and responsiveness as defined in the AA1000 AcountAbility Principles Standard (AA1000 2008) in our reporting. We are committed to continuing to develop our stakeholder engagement and materiality process in future years.
