About Us

Our vision and values

At Goldcorp, safe, responsible mining and sustainability excellence are company-wide commitments, which are at the core of all our activities and every business decision we make. We work to achieve a balance of economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility that extends beyond the operating lives of our mining operations.

Values and Pillars

At Goldcorp, our vision Together, Creating Sustainable Value describes why we are in business. Our values allow us to stand apart – they shape our culture and drive our success going forward. Our six pillars guide what we do every day. They support our strategy, guide our vision and are grounded in our values.

In early 2015, we changed the Growing Partnerships pillar to Growing Sustainability, which, in addition to partnerships, also encompasses environmental stewardship and corporate social responsibility. We believe this change better supports our vision going forward. Goldcorp aims to create a culture and working environment that sets the standard among our peers for sustainable mining operations. Sustainability is a core part of what we do.

We believe that when we get the top three pillars right - growth in Sustainability, People and Safety - the bottom three pillars, which are all focused on growing our net asset value, will naturally follow.

Pillar:

Growing Sustainability is about being accountable for leaving a positive economic, social and environmental legacy everywhere we operate. Our results are driven by good governance, collaborative partnerships, innovation and responsible stewardship of resources.

Value:

Empowering Others: Help others succeed. Lead by example, be a good mentor and a lifelong learner, recognize good work, take responsibility, and celebrate the wins.

Pillar:

Growing People is about providing opportunities for personal and professional growth for everyone, and developing our people to their fullest potential. We value and respect each individual’s contributions.

Value:

Innovation: Be resourceful and always look for new and better ways of doing things. The freedom to come up with great new ideas and to take reasonable risks to implement them is part of our culture and key to our success.

Pillar:

Growing Safety is an integral requirement of our business. We are committed to protecting our people by looking out for each other, by recognizing the complexity of the task at hand, and by enhancing our abilities to recognize and deal with risk.

Value:

Safe Production: No ounce of gold is worth risking our life. At Goldcorp, we believe in creating a workplace that is Safe Enough for Our Families.

Pillar:

Growing Reserves is fundamental to the long-term viability of our business. By replacing the gold we produce, we provide the resources for future development. Growing Reserves ensures our future.

Value:

Open Communication: Speak up and admit when you (or we) have made a mistake. Share ideas; be honest. Through open communication, fresh new ideas will come forward, and that is how we will continue to be successful.

Pillar:

Growing Safe Production reflects a desire to get better in quality and output against whatever technical measure is relevant to where we work. Our overall gold production is the result of thousands of different technical inputs.

Value:

Respecting All Our Stakeholders: Build partnerships, be a team player, and treat people fairly. Truly listen to those that are impacted by what we do.

Pillar:

Growing Margins requires all of us to consider the financial implications of our decisions and exercise financial discipline. Strong margins will ensure Goldcorp remains one of the lowest-cost senior gold producers and will allow us to deliver on our commitment to shareholders.

Value:

Acting Ethically: Treat people with respect and act with integrity; abide by our Code of Conduct and avoid discrimination, bribery or corruption of any kind. Ethics is more than a set of rules – it is about having the courage to say and do the right thing, no matter what.
VISION: TOGETHER, CREATING SUSTAINABLE VALUE
Together: We cannot achieve our goals alone. We work as a team with all others in the organization, and we also build collaborative partnerships with communities, governments and stakeholders for mutual success.
Creating: We find and mine gold safely. Everything we do through the organization, across locations, is focused on safe production and creating sustainable value.
Sustainable Value: We create value for our investors and our employees. We also create careers and support community development activities, and our operations create wealth on a local, regional and national level every day. We are committed to making sure that the places where we operate are left in as good or better condition than how we found them. We work hard to make a lasting positive impact on people’s lives throughout our business.
