About This Report
Open communication is one of our core values and is embodied in our annual Sustainability Report. Each report is a milestone on our sustainability journey that not only shows our stakeholders how far we’ve come but also how much farther we can go.
Scope and Content
Information in this report covers the 2016 calendar year, which coincides with our financial year. We report annually on our sustainability performance. Our previous Sustainability Report covered the 2015 calendar year and was published in June 2016.
This report follows the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI 4.0), the United Nations Global Compact and the International Council on Mining and Metals. This year’s report is a G4 Core report. Under the G4 guidelines, companies must focus their reporting on topics that are specifically material to them and their stakeholders. As a result, our 2016 Sustainability Report discloses information on the GRI indicators that respond to our most material topics. More information on the framework can be found on the GRI website.
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, 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.
