Scope and Content
Information in this report covers the 2015 calendar year, which coincides with the company's financial year.
We report annually on our sustainability performance. Our previous Sustainability Report covered the 2014 calendar year and was published in June 2015.
As a member of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), Goldcorp is committed to following a set of 10 principles and supporting position statements, public reporting of related performance and independent assurance of sustainability performance.
A key part of our commitment to public disclosure is to report in line with the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and Mining and Metals Sector Supplement. The GRI provides reporting principles and reporting guidance to help define report content, ensure the quality of reported information and set the report boundary. Under the G4 guidelines, companies must focus their reporting on topics that are specifically material to them and their stakeholders. As a result, our 2015 Sustainability Report discloses information on the GRI indicators that respond to our most material topics.
We have designed this report to be accessible to a number of different readers. A PDF format is available for those who may want to conduct an in-depth analysis, such as Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Analysts and Socially Responsible Investors and non-governmental organizations. The online version allows other readers (e.g., shareholders, host communities, employees and contractors, media and regulators) to navigate easily to specific sections of interest. Both our online and PDF versions of the report contain a GRI index to help organize sustainability content based on a specific GRI indicator.
